    The Latest on our Upcoming Young Adult Webinars

    What do credit unions and young adults have in common?

    Far too little, unfortunately, for comfort.

    What: Starting this Thursday at 3:00 PM Eastern, REAL Solutions will present the latest research on young adults’ financial habits and needs. This Thursday’s meeting will introduce the CU Tomorrow project from the Filene Research Institute and offer an introduction to how credit unions can capitalize on the changing financial marketplace to reach out to young adults with products and services, not just financial education.

    Who: The National Credit Union Foundation and the Filene Research Institute have partnered to bring this valuable resource to all REAL Solutions state leagues and credit unions. All REAL Solutions credit unions and leagues are invited to attend all the CU Tomorrow webinars at no cost.

    When: Following Thursday’s introduction, REAL Solutions will sponsor an additional CU Tomorrow webinar each month, covering topics as varied as first credit cards, student loans, social media, and young adult transaction accounts, and more.
