Nearly 60 people representing more than 40 credit unions attended. Lois Kitsch, REAL Solutions program director, and Mark Lynch, field coach, facilitated the sessions. “The Illinois league is excited to be a partner in REAL Solutions,” said Dan Plauda, ICUL president/CEO. “Through this progressive program, we look forward to making a difference in people’s lives.” REAL Solutions is a signature program of the National Credit Union Foundation. "REAL" stands for "Relevant, Effective, Asset-building, Loyalty-producing" solutions. Through the program, credit unions can choose up to 20 products or services in education, transaction services, savings, credit, and home ownership to offer people of modest means, working families, and “low-wealth" households. Participation fees have been funded by ICUL and the Illinois Credit Union Foundation (ICU Foundation). Twenty-nine Illinois credit unions have signed a memo of understanding to participate in the program. Lynch is conducting diagnostics meetings with each participating credit union to determine the credit union’s interests and to pick the top three products of the program. The diagnostics will be completed in the next few weeks. ICUL also will conduct a series of partners meetings. Credit unions plan to roll out their REAL Solutions initiatives in about nine months.
