Please join us for a webinar to discuss Prize-Linked Savings (PLS) opportunities in Connecticut on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
To register please contact Susan O’Loughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the 2013 legislative session, the CT General Assembly passed a bill that allows credit unions to offer savings promotion raffles – savings products that offer prizes in order to incent increased savings activity. Connecticut is the 8thstate to pass similar legislation, following in the footsteps of Nebraska, Rhode Island, Washington, North Carolina, Maryland, Maine, and Michigan.As financial institutions, you are acutely aware of the importance of savings as part of someone’s financial portfolio.
The webinar will feature Doorways to Dreams Fund, a national non-profit that has been providing technical assistance, advice, and evaluation for PLS products around the country. In this webinar, we will cover:
- The basics of PLS
- Overview of Connecticut law
- Success/Impact in other states
- Implementation considerations/how-tos
Please join us for a great conversation. Attending this webinar is not considered to be an indication of commitment to offer the product – the goal of the meeting is to get a shared understanding of the opportunity, discuss options in Connecticut, and see what credit unions would like to explore a prize-linked savings product. Please share this invitation with any relevant staff or other credit union partners.
For more information about savings promotion raffles/prize-linked savings products, the experience in Michigan with Save to Win, and additional new research, please visit

CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference
One Cause. One Voice.
Plan to attend the nation’s capital for the 2014 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) to Unite for Good.
Rally for the powerful credit union cause and connect with leaders from across the United States.
CUNA GAC is the biggest week of the year for credit unions. More than 4,000 credit union people come together to:
• Hear from influential legislators, policymakers and credit union experts on the political landscape and its effect on credit unions
• Identify new strategies for building and maintaining America’s awareness and trust
• Network with credit union leaders
• Attend breakout sessions on the hottest issues in the movement
• Tour the largest vendor showcase in the financial services industry
• Tell Congress our story at state Hike the Hill visits
Please wait for word from Kelly Fuhlbrigge for registration information!
This past year, CUNA and the leagues launched a shared strategic vision for credit unions nationwide: Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
To make our vision a reality, we must come together to remove barriers – like the threat to the credit union tax status - create awareness and foster service excellence. We all need to Unite for Good.
We have an opportunity to accomplish a lot for the movement this year, and need your involvement to make it happen. Come to Washington, D.C. to tell our shared story and protect the credit union difference.
