Oregon CUs only FI on state Financial Ed Task Force
BEAVERTON, Ore. (4/22/08)--Oregon credit unions are the only financial institutions invited to participate on the state’s Financial Education Task Force, the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) said Monday. Credit unions helped create the task force during the 2007 Oregon Legislative session. The task force will review the civics curriculum at local schools and secure funding for financial literacy efforts through the Oregon Department of Education. The task force held its first meeting March 21. Credit unions will be represented by task force member Cori Frauendiener, director of educational partnerships at MaPS CU, Salem, Ore. Oregon credit unions continue to keep financial literacy at the top of their priorities by implementing programs to teach financial education. In addition to financially supporting the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Finance, credit unions run workshops for youth, establish in-school branches, provide classroom presentations and create legislation, said CUAO.
