CUNA Coopera offer Hispanic Webinar series
DES MOINES, Iowa and MADISON, Wis. (4/26/12)--Coopera has partnered with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to host a series of webinars for credit unions. The objective is to educate as many credit union leaders as possible on the importance of adapting products and services to meet the needs of Hispanic members. 

The webinar series has so far garnered attendees from more than 100 credit unions. More webinars are scheduled for the remainder of the year, with the next set to take place on May 16 from 1:30 to 2:30 (CT).

Each hour-long webinar will offer credit unions ideas and best practices for reaching --and best serving --Hispanic consumers in local communities nationwide.

"Savvy credit union executives realize the face of the American consumer is changing," said Coopera Vice President Miriam De Dios. "To grow a credit union's membership, leadership must adapt to their new consumers. It is the integration of a Hispanic growth strategy with the credit union's overall strategic future that will ultimately create sustainable success."

Upcoming webinar events include:
