NAPERVILLE, Ill. (3/10/09)--The Illinois Credit Union League is offering a series webinars on its prepaid card program starting today. The league offers credit unions Visa TravelMoney through its CUMoney program. The Missouri Credit Union Association also is offering the webinars to its member credit unions. Two webinars will be held today--one from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. CDT and another from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Another webinar is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday. The webinars aim to educate credit unions about the prepaid card industry. The cards--which are good at 25 million merchants worldwide, can be instantly issued, and are reloadable and dispensable, according to the league. Prepaid cards have been the fastest growing form of payment in the past 20 years, the league said. The prepaid industry is expected to grow to $236 billion this year.
