ICUF Newsletter: Congrats to the newest Financial Coaches! — 
 
May 2019
 
Financial Coach Training a Success!
Thank you to those who participated in ICUF's new 'People Helping People' Financial Coach Training Progra m! The event was held May 7-9 in West Des Moines. We are proud to announce that 39 new financial coaches graduated from the program, representing 22 different Iowa credit unions. Financial coaches are member advocates who can help credit union members navigate difficult financial situations.
 
Graduates participated in three days of intense learning and simulation to help them grow in understanding of how a person’s relationship with money can impact their financial decision making and lead to potential hardship.
 
The mission of the Iowa Credit Union Foundation is to empower people and communities to achieve financial well-being by championing the credit union philosophy of people helping people. We do this by offering critical programs, such as the financial coaching program for credit union employees. Financial coaches make a difference, and we hope Iowa credit unions can be at the forefront of positively impacting the financial well-being of Iowans.
