COLUMBIA, S.C., and RALEIGH, N.C. (12/23/13)--The door opened another crack to give the credit union system a peek at the new look for the Carolinas Credit Union League (CCUL) when the logo for the merged league was released last week.
The logo--a carrick bend knot in two shades of blue representing the two leagues--stands for cohesion, expertise and strength, said Brandon Pugh, who currently is vice president of public relations and communications for the South Carolina Credit Union League.
CCUL is new trade association for North Carolina and South Carolina credit unions. Its new website, carolinasleague.org, will launch Jan. 1 (The Weekly Conversation Dec. 20).
The teaser video highlights the league's vision of being: dedicated to credit union success, credit unions' strongest advocate, a voice for many and a resource for all.
The website will have a community section in which credit union staff can engage peers and exchange support among groups by chapter, expertise or credit union asset size.
"We heard clearly that credit unions want their league to be a unifying influence and a champion of cooperation, and the community section will empower them to connect and collaborate," said Pugh.
