GAC attendees can sign commitment to CUs
WASHINGTON (2/19/09)--Attendees at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) can pledge their commitment to credit unions and in the process raise money for the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). CUNA Mutual Group will contribute $5 each to NCUF for GAC attendees who demonstrate a commitment to credit unions by adding their signature to a “Sign of Commitment.” CUNA Mutual’s booth in the GAC exhibit hall (booth 401) will display a 5-by-8-feet signature wall. Everyone who adds their name to the Sign of Commitment will be given a wristband to wear as a symbol of their commitment to the credit union movement. “This challenging economic environment is the perfect time to remind ourselves of the cooperative character that binds us,” said Christopher Roe, CUNA Mutual’s senior vice president of corporate and legislative affairs. “The Sign of Commitment is one way CUNA Mutual wants to show support and reinforce the movement’s philosophy of ‘people helping people.’” NCUF Executive Director Steve Delfin said the additional support provided by CUNA Mutual will enable the foundation to sustain and grow the Credit Union Development Education (DE) program. “Over 800 credit union professionals and volunteers have experienced DE training, which helps put into action the cooperative values and principles that make credit unions uniquely socially responsible,” said Delfin. “CUNA Mutual’s ongoing commitment to NCUF and Development Education is greatly appreciated.” Throughout 2009, the centennial year of the first credit union law, CUNA Mutual plans to take the Sign of Commitment to other events as an opportunity to honor credit unions and their members.
