The resources listed on this page are strategy and content ideas, your credit union has the responsibility of tailoring social media messaging and campaigns to your institution's brand.


Help spread the word about the proposed Financial Literacy legislation! Participate in #FinLitFriday today and every Friday during the Florida Legislative Session. Join the conversation about the proposed Financial Literacy legislation that will require a half-credit course in personal financial literacy in Florida high schools.

The League is asking credit unions to take action and help get this legislation passed by participating in #FinLitFriday: tweeting a message about financial literacy each Friday during the Florida Legislative Session using the hashtag #CUs4FinLit.

Use the social media plan for message ideas. If you have any questions regarding #FinLitFriday or the Financial Literacy legislation, contact LSCU Director, Governmental Affairs Jennifer Martin.
