Last year, we produced a bonus issue of Credit Union Magazine that we mailed to our subscribers in time for International Credit Union Day, the third Thursday in October.
Last year’s bonus edition was a look back and a look forward. It was a retrospective account of the credit union movement’s formative years and a look forward as nearly 20 credit union leaders described their vision for the future of the movement.
If you missed it, you can view this issue in our digital archives at credit unionmagazine.com. This year, we will again publish a bonus 13th edition that our subscribers will receive in time for International Credit Union Day on Oct. 17.
This special issue will be devoted entirely to Credit Union Rock Stars— those creative people who are doing extraordinary things in their particular areas of expertise. These are the people who have embraced the credit union mission and continuously eat, sleep, and breathe it.
You might find Credit Union Rock Stars using the latest social media tools, working on financial literacy projects, serving the underserved, or spearheading new mobile service initiatives. They might be tellers, loan officers, or CEOs.
You might even find them working for organizations that support credit unions. You know who they are. In fact, you might even be one.
We’ve created a Rock Star nomination form and placed it on our website. To find it, visit creditunionmagazine.com/nominaterockstar, or click on the Credit Union Rock Star icon along the right side of our home page.
If you know a Credit Union Rock Star, tell us about him or her. We’d like to know:
How has this person raised the bar on creativity, strategy, and execution in his or her area of influence, and what were the results?
What makes this Rock Star unique?
What do you admire most about this Rock Star? Together, let’s nominate—and celebrate— the credit union movement’s Rock Stars.
