Last week CUNA publicly announced an initiative aimed at promoting awareness of credit unions that asks credit unions and credit union trade associations across the country to educate people in communities they serve. Taking up this call nearly two years ago was the Cooperative Credit Union Association.
The Cornerstone Credit Union League unveiled a multi-state awareness campaign Tuesday that aims to bring new members into the movement by communicating the benefits of credit union membership. The league and CUNA have committed to working collaboratively as both of their awareness initiatives progress.
The CUNA Creating Awareness Advisory Group will provide an overview of its work to identify ways to raise awareness of CU movement Tuesday. The chair of the group will present an overview of the group’s work.
CUNA’s compliance staff was recently asked about a garnishment order for a member’s that receives federal benefits. The credit union determined the member did not have enough and the member asked the order be paid in full using those funds.
