Delaware league coordinates media exposure
NEW CASTLE, Del. (12/4/07)--The Delaware Credit Union League (DCUL) recently worked with area media to coordinate information about the credit union movement in general and specifically about Delaware credit unions. Alice Smith, DCUL communications director, dealt with several reporters who were preparing articles about credit unions (Together Nov. 20). As a result, an article titled “Credit Unions Offer Members a Variety of Services,” appeared in the August Morning Star Business Report, was published in Sussex County. Credit unions interviewed for the article include: Del-one FCU, Dover; Dover FCU, Dover; Seaford FCU, Seaford; Southern Delaware Postal Employees FCU, Houston; and Sussex County FCU, Seaford. Leslie Papas, financial institutions reporter for The News Journal, contacted the DCUL for sources and information on the National Share Insurance Fund, as she prepared her article that focused on the insuring of excess funds. Although Delaware credit unions did not appear in the main article published Oct. 28, the side bar on “Protecting Deposits” mentioned the credit unions’ insurance fund. The DCUL continues to work with the Delaware Business Ledger in preparing its annual “Book of Lists.” The Business Ledger highlighted credit unions in its October issue--in recognition of Credit Union Week--and featured mini-articles on the free patriotism CD--sponsored by Delaware credit unions and donated to schools and libraries. Also mentioned were the Del-One corporate center opening and back-to-school donations, the DCUL’s publications award, the Newark-based Louviers FCU scholarship program, and the definition of a credit union.
