Voting in the Primary Elections

I just recently finished a seminar with 24 Wellness Champions on the importance of Financial Education in the Workplace that impacts employee morale and health. It was well received and currently receiving a number of request to come onsite to present to their employee population.

Then I realized today was Primary Day in California. I need to go out and vote!

Participating in our government is extremely important. It’s our sure fire way of voicing our support or opposition on key issues that impact us personally, our family and our work. All in all the decisions made by those running and winning the elected office impact our way of life.

Today, in California is Primary Day, and I will be casting my vote before the polls closed.

I hope you take the time to vote for in a different election of sorts as the Next Top Credit Union Exec. I stand for financial literacy in the workplace to help all generations understand basic finance or employing all the communication channels available to reach everyone not just the youth. My goal is to encourage collaboration between the older generation and the new generation to work towards the common purpose of heightening the credit union industry.  Yes, the cool factor is great with the youth but what stands the test of time is not the social media channels it’s how we use them to communicate how we help members get ahead!

“I’m Jason Vitug, I help members get ahead financially and help my credit union get ahead through literacy.”

The Next Top Credit Union Exec

As many of you have seen me deliver seminars and involved in what’s going on in and around campus to help foster that sense of community. Many of you may know I am a big advocate of financial literacy. I’ve seen so many not-for-profits and financial institutions target financial education to our youth. I do believe laying the foundation early is important however I’ve always asked, what about us folks?  Those of us who have put the classroom days behind us are always thirsty for knowledge and we may not be as vocal as we want to be.

I’ve made it a mission to bring Financial Literacy to the Workplace. I’m not alone at this, the US Government believes in this too! Help me reach a career milestone and chance to win tuition scholarship of up to $25,000 to attend courses at Harvard Business School and Wharton School of Business.  I’d like to share this conversation I had with someone recently.  Someone asked me , “Why I was spending so much time getting people to vote?” Maybe that is the issue with the Credit Union industry? Some prevailing mindset and/or lack of competitiveness which I believe doesn’t lead to the  innovation and business success we need in the industry.  I told this person that the first step to being successful is trying and it’s not worth trying if you don’t give it your all.  I’m giving it my all with your help of course. Please take the time to vote.

Vote for me
