Maine CUs prepare fall awareness campaign
PORTLAND, Maine (8/30/11)--Maine credit unions are gearing up their fall statewide awareness campaign, said the Maine Credit Union League. SURF ATM network and Shared Branching radio ads recently hit the airwaves to remind consumers of the convenience that comes with these services, the league said (Weekly Update Aug. 26). Also returning will be statewide television advertisements sharing the reasons to "Look Into Maine's Credit Unions." They will include topics such as lending, technology, convenience, shared branching, savings and locality, as well as point out that members are always welcomed at credit unions. The lending message will air most often in the ad rotation to reflect today's economic environment, the league said. Maine's credit unions will also sponsor a fall staple in Aroostook County, the WAGM Potato Pickers Special, and reach out to wildlife enthusiasts throughout the state by sponsoring the Wildfire program. When seasons change, the sports scene also changes. Maine's credit unions will continue sponsoring two teams: the Maine Red Claws and the Portland Pirates, the league said. Also, Maine's Young & Free Spokester Seth Poplaski will share the value of credit unions with 18-25 year olds throughout the state at college orientations, end of summer celebrations and financial fitness fairs. Maine's credit unions will continue their presence on the YoungFreeMaine.com website and with website, Facebook and Google advertising, the league added.
