CUNA Councils, the nation’s leading credit union professional development network, has made a $25,000 kick-off contribution to the ongoing CUNA Credit Union Awareness Initiative, which aims to create top-of-mind consumer awareness of credit unions as a category in financial services.
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 discussion boards on CUNA’s Compliance Community featured an interesting discussion last week: what is the difference between the terms “share draft” and “checking account”? The correct use is important since credit unions pay dividends, not interest.
