SAN FRANCISCO (11/11/08)--The Filene Research Institute’s 30 Under 30 group of young professionals shared 10 strategies for credit unions at the California Credit Union League’s annual convention last week to better serve young adults.
Filene Research Institute’s 30 Under 30 group presented 10 strategies for credit unions to better serve young adults at the California Credit Union League’s annual meeting last week.
“The range of ideas and the rigor with which the groups prepared were absolutely fantastic,” said Mark Meyer, Filene CEO. The ideas were presented to executives and volunteers at the convention. Best in Show was awarded to Dustin Allen, Weber State CU, Ogden, Utah; Robin Hickey, First Financial FCU, Wall, N.J.; and Matthew Prosneski, Travis CU, Vacaville, Calif., for “Change Your Savings.”

“Change Your Savings” shows how a family can use a debit product to save for a child’s college education and cross-sell credit union accounts. Runners-up went to Mike Escudero, University of Southern California; Jill Jarman-Nowacki, Credit Union House, Washington, D.C.; Brandi Melo, Rocky Mountain CU, Helena, Mont.; and Chad Warneke, Oregonians CU, Portland, Ore., for “Cure Card.” Cure Card allows credit unions to offer one branded card that pays a portion of interchange income to a worthy cause. All 10 of the plans will be available at www.filene.org.
