Missouri credit unions can take part in National Credit Union Youth Week at a discounted rate. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) recently launched its National Credit Union Youth Week™ online store and is providing early-bird prices for credit unions. The 2012 Youth Week takes place April 22-28.
Through March 9, credit unions can save 10 percent on print materials to promote the “Be a Credit Union Super Saver™” theme and events, financial education materials to introduce money concepts to youth, fun items to reward young savers and apparel to dress the part in April. Discounts of up to 10 percent apply to standard items in inventory and bulk or customized orders.
Credit unions can also choose to participate in the nationwide Saving Challenge, in which hundreds of credit unions track youth savings deposits during the month of April. CUNA will award $100 cash prizes to youth at 10 of the participating credit unions.
“Participating in the Saving Challenge is a great way for individual credit unions to raise awareness about the importance of financial responsibility and the benefits of credit union membership on a national scale,” says Joanne Sepich, event coordinator. “Last year, participating credit unions reported more than 9,000 new accounts and savings deposits of $28.5 million. This is a prime opportunity to increase member involvement.”
For Youth Week and throughout April, credit unions can outfit staff in Super Saver two-color imprint T-shirts in adult and youth sizes. Credit unions save on the upgraded tee and can both select the color and customize by adding the credit union name. Available in five colors, the shirt features the Credit Union Super Saver dollar sign logo highlighted by a yellow lightning bolt across its front.
