NYIB annual conference set for July
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (6/3/08)--The National Youth Involvement Board’s (NYIB) annual conference is set for July 28-31 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, with many business opportunities for credit unions. In addition to speaker and breakouts dedicated to youth marketing and financial education outreach, credit union staffers can gain leadership experience and recognition for youth outreach, said the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) (LoneStar Leaguer June 2). With the average credit union member’s age (47) about 12 years older than the average American’s (35), credit unions have a need to attract younger people--not only in membership, but also in staff and volunteers, TCUL said. A report by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) found that one in 100 credit union board members is under 30, and only 40% of nonmembers are familiar with credit unions--indicating a potential shortage of professional staff, as well as members. NYIB Chair John Faries, Space Age FCU, Aurora, Colo., issued a call for leadership opportunities within NYIB, and for logging all youth outreach programs on the organization’s website. The NYIB Executive Committee is made up of a chairman and six regional coordinators from regions across the country, serving two-year rotating terms, Faries said. “The coordinators oversee their region of the U.S. and keep in touch with their league liaisons. “It’s through the regional coordinators that some information is disseminated to leagues, credit unions and individual network members,” he continued. “Regional coordinators provide more of a local connection to NYIB, in addition to our listserv and website.”
