WASHINGTON (6/28/13)--There is a new way for the credit union community to share stories about steps they have taken to support the Credit Union National Association's Unite for Good initiative by fostering its goals of taking action to remove barriers, creating awareness and fostering service excellence.
To support the Unite for Good vision in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner," CUNA announced Thursday that it has expanded the Unite for Good site to host a virtual credit union community, which will allow credit unions to communicate no matter where they are.
Credit unions now have the option to create a profile on www.uniteforgood.org, and then share their stories, ask questions, and cultivate relationships with credit unions across the country.
"Working together is the foundation of success and that is why this initiative is so crucial to the credit union movement," said Paul Gentile, CUNA executive vice president of communications and strategic messaging.
"We wanted to create a space that encouraged credit unions to share their success, ask questions and get to know each other on a deeper level. Once we are all working together and presenting a unified front, then we will be able to achieve our vision of being Americans' best financial partner."
Although all posts will be visible to the public under the "share stories" tab, profile information will only be accessible to other members who have created a profile.
Credit unions can email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to request assistance setting up a profile or posting a story.
