NWCUAs Brown named national Biz Kid coordinator
MADISON, Wis. (8/15/11)--Danielle Brown, vice president of Northwest Credit Union Association and executive director of the Oregon Credit Union Foundation, has been named by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) as the national coordinator of Biz Kid$, the credit union-sponsored public television series. Brown will promote Biz Kid$ among credit unions as a financial literacy resource for middle school students. She will be responsible for fundraising and implementing credit unions use of Biz Kid$ in classrooms. The Washington Credit Union Foundation in June transitioned the Biz Kid$ project administration on behalf of credit unions to the NCUF so the program could achieve greater national reach and prominence. NCUF’s resources will provide additional marketing and promotion. Biz Kid$ is broadcast on nearly all Public Broadcast Stations and has produced four completed television seasons. Filming and production of season five episodes began July 26 at the North Seattle-based production studio. Fundraising is underway for the new season, which, upon completion, would position the show for national daily syndication, Brown said. If enough episodes for syndication are produced, the curriculum likely will be picked up in more classrooms nationwide, Brown said. Brown has 15 years of experience with regional credit union trade associations. Prior to the merger of the Credit Union Association of Oregon and the Washington Credit Union League, Brown served as a consultant, a compliance officer, director of education, and chief financial officer for Credit Union Association of Oregon.
