Save the Date! ICUF Roundtable on Community Impact

Save the date for Tuesday, February 12, 2019 for ICUF's first roundtable on the subject of credit union community impact. Attendees will learn about best practices in supporting their communities, measuring impact and will hear about state-wide initiatives aimed at raising awareness on the needs of working families in our state. This event would be ideal for any credit union representative who leads or champions community impact or marketing at their credit union. The location for this event has yet to be determined.
