Message from the President
Financial Education — More to do
One of the most vivid impressions from the last Great Recession was how many people were unprepared for a downturn in their personal finances. Situations such as getting overextended on credit, not building any significant savings, and pursuing investments that ultimately proved too good to be true left individuals and their families
facing difficult times.
To help prevent the same scenarios from happening again, Greater Nevada Credit Union and many others across the nation have significantly increased their efforts in providing financial education. Right after the Great Recession, GNCU saw more members than ever utilize the resources we offer to better live within their means and plan for tomorrow. Now that the economy is strong and people are feeling optimistic, we want to continue keeping
our members financially prepared for economic downturns, personal emergencies and other things beyond our control that can negatively impact personal finances.
This commitment to financial education is yet another way GNCU differs from banks and other financial institutions. We believe that one of the biggest values we can bring to our members is financial education resources to enjoy not only the good times, but also make it through the tougher times without needing to make life-changing sacrifices.
I invite you to take full advantage of our financial education resources and allow us to help you take more control of your financial future. At GNCU, we understand that financial education may not sound like the most exciting topic, but it can be extremely worthwhile and provide tremendous peace of mind during the times when you need it most.
Warmest regards and God bless,
