LINTHICUM, Md. – State Employees CU of Maryland launched a Facebook page to get members and prospective members information about financial education and events in the community in a fast and convenient fashion.

“Our purpose on Facebook is to give people a forum to ask questions and enhance their financial literacy,” said Rod Staatz, president of the $2.1 billion credit union. “We want to expand SECU’s value as a source for viable and valuable financial information.”

Staatz said a presence on Facebook will make banking more convenient for consumers, particularly those in the 18-35 age range who “have strongly indicated that they prefer to interact online.”
