MnCUN adopts new mission core values statements
ST. PAUL, Minn. (2/5/08)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) Board of Directors adopted new mission and core values statements at its December 2007 board meeting. The revision process began during the September 2007 planning session as part of an effort to reexamine, refine and refresh MnCUN’s overall direction. McCUN's new mission statement is: "We are an association designed to ensure the success, growth and vitality of our member credit unions by creating a positive public environment though leadership, political advocacy, education, awareness and regulatory assistance." Its new core values statements include:
* We believe in sustaining and defending the credit union model of a member-owned, not-for-profit, democratically controlled financial cooperative; * We value all member credit unions regardless of size, charter or geographic location; * We believe credit unions are an essential service provider in the financial marketplace; * We believe in the philosophy "people helping people" by encouraging and supporting our member credit unions to become involved in the communities they serve; * We value people over profit; * We believe in the preservation of a strong dual chartering system; * We believe that all consumers should have the option to become a credit union member.
“The new statements serve as a reminder of who we are working for and what we hope to accomplish, said Mark D. Cummins, MnCUN president/CEO. "They will give us the direction we need to continue to effectively serve our member credit unions in 2008 and beyond.”
