Md.D.C. Dollars and Sense Guide aimed at commuters
COLUMBIA, Md. (3/3/10)--The Maryland and District of Columbia Credit Union Association (MDDCCUA) has partnered with The Washington Examiner to publish a 16-page supplement promoting the benefits of credit unions. They hope the supplement will reach more than a half million Washington, D.C.- area consumers. The supplement, “Dollars and Sense Guide: Credit Union's Resource for Financial Management,” was delivered to Washington, D.C.-area homes on Sunday, and around town on Tuesday, according to MDDCCUA. The supplement heightens consumer awareness of credit unions and features articles written by financial experts highlighting the distinct differences between credit unions and banks, credit union safety and soundness, financial literacy, and innovative products and services. It has been delivered to every legislative office on Capitol Hill and was unveiled during the state association’s annual luncheon at the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). “The supplement also showcases area credit unions to other credit unions on a national basis with distribution at last week’s GAC, and promotes the upcoming Dollars and Sense Expo scheduled for Saturday,” the association said. The Dollars and Sense Expo, which is sponsored by MDDCCUA and will take place in Washington, D.C., will offer consumers financial resources, free tax preparation for workers earning less than $48,000 per year, homebuying information, job interview skills and other activities.
