MD|DC|VA Credit Unions promoted Financial Fitness at the NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo

Wed, Jan 15, 2014

Columbia, Maryland

Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia credit unions; the MD|DC Credit Union Association and its D.C. and Suburban Maryland chapters; the Virginia Credit Union League; the Credit Union Foundation of MD and DC; the National Credit Union Foundation; SavvyMoney; and the Credit Union National Association joined forces this weekend to create credit union awareness and encourage financial fitness at the NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo.

Credit unions worked cooperatively to encourage consumers to get financially fit in 2014. The credit unions partnered with SavvyMoney to bring consumer financial expert Jean Chatzky to the expo, as well as offer free financial checkups for attendees.  Credit union staff worked with consumers to complete the online financial assessments that gave real-time evaluations of their financial health. On Saturday, Chatzky hosted a seminar on financial fitness where she talked about deciding between needs and wants, how to save for your future and explained how your financial health affects your physical health. “When you are in great shape financially you are less worried, stress free and feel much better,” said Chatzky.  

Hundreds of attendees completed the financial checkup and had one-on-one time with Chatzky during her autograph signing of her book, Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security, at the Dollars & Sense Credit Union Pavilion.
