The event began with a reception at America’s Credit Union Museum in Manchester. It located in the original structure of the first credit union in the U.S., St. Mary’s Bank, which opened its doors 100 years ago in November. After the reception, a viewing of the DVD was held at a theater in downtown Manchester. The DVD, “Credit unions: 100 years of building financial futures,” is sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), the American Association of Credit Union Leagues, CUNA Mutual Group, U.S. Central, and St. Mary’s Bank. The video chronicles the U.S. credit union movement and showcases the events and people responsible for the development of the credit union movement, according to the Massachusetts Credit Union League. Attending the premiere were Dan Mica, CUNA president/CEO; Dan Eagan, Massachusetts and New Hampshire Credit Union League and the Credit Union Association of Rhode Island president; Susan Newton, American Association of Credit Union Leagues director; Pete Crear, World Council of Credit Unions president/CEO; and Gordon Simmons, America’s Credit Union Museum chair. Credit unions' 100th anniversary (as well as the 75th anniversaries of CUNA and the Federal Credit Union Act) will be showcased at CUNA's 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference in February. The anniversary will be celebrated in June at the America's Credit Union Conference & Expo, which will be held in Boston in conjunction with the Massachusetts Credit Union League's annual meeting. The anniversaries also will be spotlighted in the November and December issues of Credit Union Magazine and in a special CUNA web page that will go live Nov. 1.
