COLUMBIA, S.C. (7/1/10)--Two deadlines are approaching for members of the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) related to reporting their classroom presentations and registering for the hotel at the next NYIB 2010 Annual Conference on July 26-29 in St. Louis. Credit unions have until Tuesday to report all their classroom presentations data to the NYIB website (see link) for NYIB's official 2009-2010 figures, said Brandon Pugh, NYIB chairman and director of communications and public relations at the South Carolina Credit Union League. Credit unions who make financial education presentations in classrooms enter the data on NYIB's website. The data are used in NYIB awards, annual report and media releases. Pugh noted that NYIB is close to its goal of reaching 400,000 students. For each presentation, a credit union selects the venue (school) from the list of locations, and enters the number of students under these eligible topics:
* National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) High School Financial Planning Program; * Biz Kid$ (companion curriculum); * Money management; * Credit union careers; * General credit union background; * Credit; and * Other.
"From each user's input, we get a total number of presentations and students reached, and we recognize top performers including those who show the largest percentage increase from one year to the next," Pugh told News Now
. "We're also going to add team recognition this year since some credit unions report aggregate rather than individual data," he said, adding that NYIB encourages individual data. The second deadline, July 9, is extended cutoff date for making reservations for the Renaissance Grand Hotel in St. Louis to attend NYIB's 2010 Annual Conference. The conference rate is $119/night.
