Andrews FCU's Gardner Tapped For Maryland Fin Ed Commission
SUITLAND, Md. (5/7/13)--Melissa Gardner, community outreach coordinator for Suitland, Md.-based Andrews FCU, will serve as the credit union representative of the Maryland Financial Education and Capability Commission, which will conduct its first meeting Friday in Crownsville.

Gardner was appointed to the commission last October by Gov. Martin O'Malley. She fills the lone credit union seat.

"Andrews Federal has had a financial education department since 2005, and we, along with other credit unions in the state, continue to see financial education as an important part of our service to our members," said Gardner.

The commission's task is to improve financial education and capability of the state's residents by monitoring the implementation of public and private initiatives. The commission will make recommendations about the coordination of financial education and capability efforts across state agencies and by submitting reports on its findings.

State Sen. Katherine Klausmeier (Dist. 8) and Delegate Dana Stein (Dist. 11) are co-chairpersons of the commission.
