TAMPA, Fla. (12/4/08)--The 2008 Your Essential Strategies (Yes) Summit kicked off Wednesday and runs through Friday, and anyone who is not there can still attend through the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) live conference blog. The CUNA YES Summit focuses on serving 18- to 30-year-old credit union members. The CUNA YES Summit aims to:
* Provide information for attendees to better understand the demographic; * Educate attendees on Gen Y’s four basic financial needs and how credit unions successfully address those needs; * Foster meaningful interaction with young adults and collaboration with credit union professionals; * Generate ideas and action through interactive sessions; and * Offer information about innovative initiatives throughout the movement focused on Gen Y.
The blogs are posted by Christopher Morris, CUNA Councils Web manager, and Philip Heckman, CUNA’s director of youth programs. Credit unions can respond to the blogs by clicking “comment” to any of the postings. Also, Josh Jones, Yes organizer and CUNA manager of young adult programs, has posted a welcome video on the blog site. Participants in the blog can take part in discussions, post questions and comments and follow the key points that Summit speakers make.
