CU van on 8000-mile road trip
ONTARIO, Calif. (7/2/10)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues received a visit from a man embarking on a 100-day road trip to spread the word about credit unions. Mark DeBellis, president of California-based PSB Integrated Marketing, stopped at the leagues’ offices about 50 days into his trip. His journey is focused on visiting credit unions and promoting the credit union difference. “Throughout this journey, I’m constantly being reminded of how special the people that serve this industry really are,” he told the league. DeBellis now will drive to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Colorado. He has completed more than 8,000 miles in his trip through California and expects to double his mileage. His road trip kicked off in mid-April during the leagues’ 2010 Government Relations Rally in Sacramento, Calif. DeBellis’ van reads: “100 days, 8,000 miles and one man driving for a cause.” The van has soft chairs for DeBellis’ guests, a microwave, refrigerator, cabinets, table, a built-in bed and electric generator. He also has money saving tips, budget worksheets, press releases and educational materials. DeBellis has met credit union supporters at the credit unions he has visited and also has talked to passersby to tell them about credit unions. He is visiting as many credit unions and leagues as possible, according to the California league. For more information about DeBellis’ trip, use the link.
