United Labor CU Hosts Free Financial Education Workshop
United Labor Credit Union (Kansas City) is pleased to host “Giving Credit Where Credit is Due,” a free and interactive credit-building and repair workshop Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 6:30 p.m., in Gladden Hall of the Visions Building located at 6320 Manchester Ave. in Kansas City (the IAFF Local 42 Union hall).
Participants will learn about the “credit crunch,” how to obtain and use credit (even with a low credit score), navigate a credit report roadmap, how to report errors on a credit report, ways to build or demonstrate credit history, the cost and reward of credit, what other agencies are using credit to judge payment character and more! This is the first workshop in a three-part series. Follow-up workshops will include balancing a household budget and using debt-elimination strategies for success.
Dinner and refreshments will be served, and activities for children will be available. All attendees will receive their own course workbook, a participation gift and several chances to win raffle prizes. This workshop is open to non-credit union members, but registration is a must to allow for supplies and food for everyone.
