Register For the League’s 2024 Financial Literacy Conference

When it comes to the various skills one can learn in life, few are more important than the ability to effectively manage finances. That is why the Maine Credit Union League has been a strong advocate of financial education outreach to members of all ages. To help credit unions better reach their membership with outreach efforts, the League is inviting those with a passion for financial education to the Financial Literacy Conference on August 20 at the Credit Union Service Center in Westbrook, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. This event is open to any credit union employee. The fee to attend is $75; $50 for credit unions under $50 million in assets. A continental breakfast will be provided.

“The conference will offer insight on engaging both youth and adults in conversations about finances,” said Jake Holmes, the League’s Director of Outreach & Financial Education. “Along with learning the best practices on reaching each generation with tailored education, attendees will hear from a representative of a statewide financial literacy cohort, as well as an organization committed to advancing Maine’s economy.”
