On August 13, 15 and 22, 2013 Neighbors Credit Union (St. Louis) hosted their free annual credit report seminars.
Eric Clark, vice president of Lending from Neighbors Credit Union, conducted the seminars. The seminars explained what a credit report and score is and how to read them with systematic instructions. Members learned where consumer-reporting agencies get their information from and what factors are used to calculate their score.
Each registered guest received free educational materials and a copy of their own credit report and score to follow along with during the presentation. Three lucky winners at each seminar walked away with gift cards and Cardinals baseball tickets that were given away as prizes.
Nearly 100 attendees participated in the discussion at the seminars.
“Since credit reports are an important part of our financial lives, many of our members are eager to understand credit and find ways to utilize credit reporting to their advantage," says Clark. "I truly enjoy being able to share this valuable information. As a credit union, we aspire to share knowledge to improve our members’ financial future. Enabling members through knowledge is how our credit union lives out our mission every day.”
