PCUA receives state kudos on fin ed
HARRISBURG, Pa. (5/20/11)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) and a key staffer received kudos as strong partners in promoting financial education this week at the fifth Annual Common Wealth Symposium in Grantville, Pa. Mary Rosenkrans, director of the Pennsylvania Office of Financial Education, which sponsored the event, recognized PCUA and Mike Wishnow, PCUA senior vice president, communications and marketing, as strong partners in promoting financial education in the state (Life is a Highway May 18). She noted the Investor Education in Your Workplace program, and the PCUA’s work with the Pennsylvania Securities Commission in offering the program to credit unions. Wishnow acknowledged the efforts of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation in supporting and promoting financial education programs. Secretary of Banking Glenn Moyer was the keynote speaker. He told attendees, “Financial education is an employee benefit that costs little to nothing and helps to improve both the financial capabilities of employees, as well as employee productivity.” Ted Beck, CEO of the National Endowment for Financial Education and the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, spoke to the group on the National Strategy for Financial Literacy, including goals and core competencies. Credit unions were well represented at the conference, PCUA said. Participants included: Kim Dietrich, AmeriChoice FCU, Mechanicsburg; Tricia Heisey, Belco Community CU, Harrisburg; Trish Shermot, CTCE FCU, Reading; Nancy Urban, HealthCare First CU, Johnstown; and Holly Wilds, NE PA Community FCU, Stroudsburg.
