Twitter Party for millennials

BANNOCKBURN, IL (October 7, 2015) Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) is gearing up for its first Twitter Party on Tuesday, October 13th from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. The topic is “Retirement Strategies for Millennials”. Jeff Beck, an industry expert from The Tranel Financial Group will be the guest host.

Twitter users can join the conversation from the comfort of their home using the hashtag:#MillionaireMillennials to get real-time answers to their specific retirement planning questions from Jeff Beck.

To ensure no question goes unanswered, users are encouraged to submit their questions in the designated section of the registration form no later than Friday, October 9th. Doing so counts as an entry in a drawing for a $50 gift card! Only those who complete the registration form will be entered to win the drawing.

The assigned hashtag, #MillionaireMillennials was chosen as it is comparable to the amount required for Millennials to retire comfortably, which will be addressed during the chat. This party is the first of many for GLCU who plans on hosting similar events in an effort to build deeper relationships with young adults.

This free event is made possible with participation from The Tranel Financial Group. More information can be found here.
