CU duo records ICU Day song
MADISON, Wis. (9/15/11)--The credit union music duo The Disclosures have released a new single, “Building a Better World,” for International Credit Union (ICU) Day on Oct. 20. The song title mirrors this year’s ICU Day theme, “Credit Unions Build a Better World.” The song spotlights aspects of both credit unions and the cooperative movement as a whole. The first verse points out the worldwide connection that cooperatives share. The lyrics then call attention to the benefits of credit unions, from volunteering for the board of directors to loans that help businesses and farms grow. “It captures the spirit of the day and should excite credit union staff and members alike about being a part of this movement of building a better world.” said Joanne Sepich, CUNA’s ICU Day coordinator. The ICU Day musical endeavor is not a Disclosures-exclusive effort. Credit unions worldwide can submit videos of their members and staff singing “Building a Better World.” Cuts from the submissions will be compiled into a music video for the song that will be posted on YouTube. To submit a video, use the link. The deadline for video submissions is Sept. 21. The finished video and song will be announced in the ICU Day Update e-newsletter. The Disclosures are an acoustic thrift-rock duo based in Madison, Wis., consisting of Chad Helminak and Christopher Morris. Helminak is the Web and member development strategist at the Wisconsin Credit Union League. Morris is director of communications for the National Credit Union Foundation. The duo performs classic rock n’ roll covers in addition to their original tunes that delve into topics of life, love and the cooperative spirit.
