BISMARCK, N.D. (6/24/15)--The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) was recently recognized with the Midwest Society of Association Executives’ (MSAE) Award of Excellence for the CU Social Good project.
CUAD President/CEO Robbie Thompson and Marketing Vice President Trish Shomion accepted the award at the MSAE Annual Meeting and Expo June 11 in St. Paul, Minn.
MSAE is a professional association with more than 1,000 members, representing the interests of roughly 300 associations. The MSAE Awards of Excellence program recognizes association activities and programs that make a difference within associations, the community or both.
CU Social Good received the top honor in the category of associations with $1 million or more in assets, competing against associations that serve Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. One MSAE award judge commented: “Very powerful campaign--made me want to belong to a credit union!”
Launched by CUAD in 2013 and recognized by CUNA in 2014 as the “Best Community Relations Program,” CU Social Good is the only online platform dedicated solely to the sharing of the good things that credit unions do for people and their communities every day. To date, more than 3,100 stories have been posted from credit unions in 44 states and Canada.
