'Selfies' via new website will help show the face of 100 million CU memberships
MADISON, Wis. (6/26/14)--Collecting and displaying the faces of thousands, if not millions, of credit union members through "selfies," and to show the face of the credit union movement as it closes in on the milestone of 100 million memberships, is the aim of a new website to be unveiled Friday by the Credit Union National Association and the state credit union leagues.
 
The website,  www.americascreditunions.org , allows credit union members to upload their selfies--those ubiquitous photos or

videos people take of themselves, typically with a smartphone or tablet--and post to the site. The pictures submitted will be posted to the website.
 
The website is part of CUNA's overall "100 Million Credit Union Memberships" campaign, aimed to draw attention to credit unions reaching the 100 million memberships mark later this summer.
 
"The strength of our movement is the people who own it and benefit from it," said CUNA Interim President/CEO Bill Hampel. "In advance of reaching the 100 million membership mark, we want as many people as possible to understand, and see, the strength of our movement through the faces of our membership."
 
Those wishing to post a selfie don't have to wait until Friday to begin participating. Photos or videos posted beginning today have the opportunity to be among the first featured on the website. To upload a video or photo, just visit the website, fill out the form, upload from your computer (or via social media), and submit.
 
Social media can also be used by members to share submitted selfies with the hashtag #100MM on Google+, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Doing so, CUNA's Hampel said, can additionally demonstrate the power of the credit union movement online and on social media.
 
In addition: Next week at the America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC) in San Francisco, a special "100 Million Memberships" photo booth will be available. Anyone attending the conference may have their "selfie" taken in the photo booth--which will then be available to be shared via social media and posted to the Americascreditunions.org website.
