Vermont CUs on display at Statehouse
MONTPELIER, Vt. (3/30/11)--The Association of Vermont Credit Unions (AVCU) and its credit unions were on display in the Vermont Statehouse Card Room Thursday. The AVCU display featured headlines from mass media websites that showcased how frequently credit unions have been in the press the past 12 to 18 months.

AVCU President Joe Bergeron and Legal Counsel Rick Brock promoted Vermont’s credit unions as state legislators moved through one of the busiest high-traffic rooms in the building (Newslines Express March 25). Print dailies included The New York Times and the Philadelphia Inquirer to MSN Money and The Huffington Post. The headlines covered many credit union issues, such as increased business lending, lower rates and fees on credit cards, home mortgages, car loans, and the growth of member services brought about by the consumer surge away from large banks. Legislators took handouts highlighting the name and location of all of Vermont’s credit unions and branches, enjoyed miniature chocolate bars, and entered their names into a drawing for a digital camera. Each year, the event helps set the stage for AVCU’s annual Legislator Appreciation Reception; this year it will be held April 20. Before the reception, credit union representatives will hear from several key state political leaders, including Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, Senate President Pro Tempore John Campbell and Speaker of the House Shap Smith.
