SAN DIEGO (7/29/13)--Credit union online video talk show CU Broadcast is marking its 200th episode by interviewing representatives from the Filene Research Institute and Currency Marketing about their CU Water Cooler Symposium show set for Oct. 17-18.
Host Mike Lawson interviewed Filene's Matt Davis and Currency Marketing's Tim McAlpine about Water Cooler, which they describe as an event where passionate credit union folks can listen and exchange ideas at a high level. To view the interview, use the link.
The Web-based credit union talk show was launched in November 2010. Twice a week it posts interviews discussing credit union issues and trends. Among those who have been guests on the show are National Credit Union Administration Chairman Debbie Matz and Credit Union National Association President/CEO Bill Cheney.
"I have met so many fantastic folks in this industry who are incredibly humble and passionate about their cause," Lawson said. "It's a very refreshing escape from other industries. Credit union people are so eager to tell their story--and that's what makes everybody so compelling to talk to."
During the second half of the year, CUbroadcast has plans to make the show more attractive to watch and will add features to provide more information, he said.
