DES MOINES, Iowa (5/21/13)--The Iowa Credit Union League has launched the Iowa Credit Union Pledge to encourage credit union members to show their support for their credit union.
The Pledge is part of an ongoing effort to educate credit union members about the value of membership and important legislative issues affecting their financial futures, said the league.
The Pledge says:
"I pledge to take pride in the people and places that make my community special.
"I pledge to use my voice to promote organizations that are committed to the long-term success of my community.
"I pledge to shop at local businesses that know me and value me as a customer and a neighbor.
"I pledge to invest in my financial future by supporting my credit union, an organization that respects me as a person, not as a number.
"I am proud to be a credit union member."
"Iowa's credit union members take pride in the people and places that make their communities special, and their local credit unions play an important role in this," said Emily Caropreso, league director of communications and marketing.
"The Pledge is a way for Iowa's one million members to show support for the local investment their credit union makes," she added.
Raising awareness is one of three goals in the Credit Union National Association's and state leagues' Unite For Good campaign aimed at reaching the strategic vision in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner."
