MADISON, Wis. (10/8/13)--In honor of International Credit Union Day on Thursday, Oct. 17 Credit Union Magazine is publishing a special bonus edition dedicated to the credit union movement's rock stars--ordinary people who manage to do the extraordinary.
For the past several months, Credit Union Magazine's subscribers have been nominating their rock-star colleagues on its website. Visit creditunionmagazine.com/nominaterockstar to nominate a colleague for next year's edition.
The end result of this year's nomination process is a showcase of 48 rock stars from a broad cross-section of credit unions, leagues, and related organizations.
Next week, News Now will feature profiles of five rock stars selected by readers.
"We didn't have room for all the photos and stories about our rock stars, so check out our website for more coverage of these remarkable people," said Steve Rodgers, Credit Union Magazine's editor.
Honoring credit union rock stars is just one way credit unions and more 196 million credit union members in 100 countries are preparing to "unite for good" with a variety of activities to celebrate the credit union difference and demonstrate the value of credit unions on ICU Day.
This year's theme, "Credit Unions Unite for Good," builds on the Credit Union National Association's Unite for Good campaign, which has united credit unions to work to remove barriers, create awareness of the good credit unions do for members and their communities, and foster service excellence to encourage Americans to choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
