ICUF Newsletter: Become a Financial Coach! — 
 
March 2019
 
New! Financial Coach Program
 
 
In response to credit union demand for financial coaching resources, ICUF has partnered with Adam Carroll, founder of National Financial Educators, to develop a financial coach program that will train credit union employees how to work with members to deliver needed financial coaching.
 
Participants in the program will receive hands on training, takeaway materials and access to an exclusive online resource to aid in ongoing financial coaching conversations at their credit union.
 
This program is ideal for branch managers, lenders or other credit union staff who assist members in navigating financial challenges and reaching financial goals.
 
The 'People Helping People' Financial Coach Program will be offered May 7-9, 2019 at ICUF's office in West Des Moines.

Registration Open for ICUF Golf Classic
Join us on Wednesday, June 12 at Brown Deer Golf Club in Coralville, Iowa for the 2019 ICUF Golf Classic! This best-shot golf outing is a fantastic way to support ICUF, network and re-connect with other credit union leaders throughout the state. All proceeds benefit our mission to empower people and communities to achieve financial well-being by championing the credit union philosophy of "people helping people".
 
Last year our event was sold out, so don't wait to get your team together and register!
 
ICUF Disaster Grants
Flooding has been widespread in our state once again. Did you know ICUF has a Disaster Grant program for credit union members in need? If you have a credit union member who has been displaced from their home or in financial hardship because of a disaster such as flood, fire or tornado, please contact ICUF for a grant assistance application.
 
Money Smart Kids READ Program
During the month of April, ICUF is proud to sponsor the statewide Money Smart Kids READ program. This year's event will feature the book Count on Pablo by Barbara deRubertis. Through the program, books are distributed to families through libraries and credit unions.
 
The Money Smart Kids READ program is part of Money Smart Month, a time to focus on the importance of financial literacy and good financial habits.
