Free Seminar Series

BFSFCU offers a free financial education seminar series designed with our unique membership in mind. Seminars are hosted by BFSFCU staff members in conjunction with financial, legal, and real estate experts who provide current topical information and resources beyond the Credit Union's traditional role. Seminars run for approximately 1 hour, but can last longer depending on member participation.

Our seminars cover a variety of topics including real estate, taxation, financial planning, retirement planning, paying for college, credit scoring, vehicle purchasing, and identity theft. If there is a topic you would like to suggest for future seminars, you can send us a message using this contact form.
