This baseline can be measured from year to year to ensure progress. Our checklist tests for over 200 best practice tactics in the areas of: Groundwork Personnel Products Processes, and Promotion/Marketing Strategies And you will know where you currently stand with your Hispanic outreach efforts as we pinpoint your position along the road to becoming a Best Practice credit union: NEXT

8 Demographic Market Scan Analysis of Current Hispanic Membership Branch Analysis Cultural Score Credit Union Road Map Needs Assessment – Groundwork and 4P’s Most importantly, the Needs Assessment section of the HON organizes all of the information gathered into a report outlining manageable steps. The recommendations are organized into Tier 1 (short-term) recommendations and Tier 2 (mid-term) recommendations. It prioritizes the components of your strategy giving you confidence that you are investing your money wisely on the activities that will provide you the results you seek. Groundwork T1Board of directors has, collaboratively with management, developed a strategic plan with milestones and goals for serving Hispanic populations Complete a comprehensive strategic plan on an annual basis. Review collectively as a management group and with board of directors on a quarterly basis. Engagement of board members is as important as gaining their buy-in, because it will help them become champions of the initiative. T1Credit union knows how many Hispanic members they currently have There is no consistent method of tracking Hispanic membership. While a new field was added to the system to measure the success of the Credit Union Remittance Program, the information is not analyzed consistently and staff usage of the field is inconsistent. To measure growth it will be important to establish a baseline of current Hispanic members. A combination of internal tracking, surveying methods and analyzing member data with appropriate algorithms to determine likelihood of ethnicity and ethnicity are options to explore. T2Board of directors has received adequate training to understand Hispanic populations Most board members are receptive to serving Hispanics and would like more information about how to serve this market. However, there is doubt from some board members about the risks involved in serving this market and about the profitability potential that exists in serving Hispanics. Schedule training on topics that will help board members understand the Hispanic opportunity, the Hispanic culture and an approach to reaching Hispanics. Regular sessions with the board will help them become true champions of this initiative who are committed for the long term. T2Credit union has conducted research of competitors in the alternative financial service sector Conduct an annual market scan of alternative financial services providers in the area, including payday lenders, title lenders, pawn shops, rent-to-own shops, abusive auto lenders, remittance shops and check-cashing outlets. Research should include prices and the customer profile of those who use these services. Personnel T1All employees are trained on the business case for serving Hispanics All staff should be trained on the Hispanic opportunity. New employee orientation should also leverage Coopera's training expertise and include information about the business case including the Hispanic opportunity and the extent to which the Hispanic market is underserved. T2All employees receive training on upselling to the Hispanic market Formal training should be scheduled for those employees directly working with the Hispanic market. T2Employees interfacing with the Hispanic market are trained on effectively cross-selling to the Hispanic market Formal training should be scheduled for those employees directly working with the Hispanic market. An emphasis should be placed on credit, homeownership, financial education, remittance services, credit building loans and specialty loans. Products T1Credit union provides special purpose loans to pay for quinceañera expenses. Quinceañeras are traditional celebrations in the Hispanic community that are often costly. Repackaging an existing personal loan to meet this need would be appealing to this market. T1Credit union provides special purpose loans to pay for travel expenses. This product will target the 1st generation Hispanic who is traveling at least on a yearly basis to their native country in Latin America. Processes T1Credit union tracks language preference, place of birth, and income of members while maintaining anti-discriminatory practices Utilize appended data resources available through Coopera and commit to a regular schedule of measurement of progress. Promotion and Marketing Strategy T1Credit union has developed a marketing plan to reach Hispanic populations While Hispanic outreach is a part of the credit union’s overall marketing plans, a specific marketing plan should be developed emphasizing word of mouth and grassroots strategies to reach primary and secondary targets. T1Credit union has developed brand guidelines that specify how, when, and where messaging are to be used for marketing to the Hispanic community Brand guidelines will ensure marketing materials for the Hispanic community are consistent. Print Collateral, Advertising, Signage T1Relevant signage has been translated literallyNot all relevant signage has been translated including bilingual branch hours posted on doors, patriot act requirements and NCUA signs. T1Relevant signage uses culturally relevant images and messages Not all relevant signage has been translated including bilingual branch hours posted on doors, patriot act requirements and NCUA signs. Web Site/Technology T2Credit union has a culturally relevant Spanish Web site The credit union does not have a Spanish Web site. T2Spanish applications are available onlineThe credit union does not have Spanish information on the Web site. T2Spanish consumer financial education information is available online Consider subscribing to El Poder es Tuyo, which is an interactive Web tool linking to the credit union’s Web site that provides consumer financial education. Location T1Credit union has a branch which is welcoming to Hispanics There are many positive aspects of the environment that staff at the East Des Moines and Denison branches have created. They are very welcoming. However, more can be done to increase visibility that these branches serve Hispanics through signage and other environmental cues. Refer to the Branch Analysis. T1Branch is children-friendly and is relevant to Hispanic children More can be done at the Denison and E. Des Moines branches to create a welcoming environment for Hispanic children. Consider having a children’s area with English and Spanish materials such as coloring books and financial education materials. NEXT
