MADISON, WI (October 14, 2021) — The theme for International Credit Union Day® 2021 is “Building Financial Health for a Brighter Tomorrow.” To expand on that vision, this World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) virtual event will feature presentations examining financial health and all the complexities associated with that term for credit unions and their members.

This webinar will consider the current financial health of credit union members, the differences between financial inclusion and outcomes, and how some credit union initiatives across the globe are improving the financial health of members.
