TCUL launches IYC video contest
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (9/17/12)--Credit unions looking for a way to celebrate the 2012 International Year of Cooperatives (IYC) might consider commemorating the role credit unions play in the cooperative industry. 

For example, the Texas Credit Union League's (TCUL) International Year of Cooperatives campaign offers credit unions an opportunity to describe how credit unions make a difference in the lives of consumers.

2012 was designated by the United Nations to be the IYC, with the theme "Cooperatives build a better world."

TCUL is asking state credit unions and staff to submit short video clips that describe why cooperatives and credit unions are important for consumers. 

Applicants can download their submissions to YouTube and e-mail the link to lwebb-manon@tcul.coop. The deadline is 10 a.m. Oct. 18--International Credit Union Day.

Videos will be judged by TCUL staff. The winner will receive an iPad.

"Cooperative Enterprises Build a Better World" is the theme for the United Nations-designated IYC. "Members Matter Most" is the theme for this year's International Credit Union Day, which is traditionally celebrated the third Thursday of October each year.
