26 Leaders and officers of the national federations and primary cooperatives from Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Nepal attended the online Youth Workshop from September 1 to 3, 2020.
The workshop aims to reignite the 360 Degrees Financial Literacy for Members and introduce a new tool - Family Financial Planning, the template that ACCU developed to lay a solid financial foundation for members and their families. The template will help the members to plan ahead on building emergency fund, getting out of debt, retirement planning, multiple income streams, and insurance.
With the collaboration from AMF and its network, Mr. Paul Dawson, CEO of First Choice CU and Ms. Gillian George, Chairperson of Australian Mutuals Foundation are invited as a speaker and provide a session on "Credit Union Responsibility in Helping Members Prepare for Rainy Days" and "Financial Resilience – Why does it matter now?"
After completing the workshop, all participants are expected to develop a training guideline and education program for their respective organizations and cooperatives.
