CUNA Council adds session on opportunities from economy
MADISON, Wis. (3/5/10)--Credit unions can discuss leveraging the opportunities from the current economic climate--including The Huffington Post’s “Move Your Money” campaign--in a new session to the 2010 CUNA Marketing and Business Development Council Conference March 21-24 in Washington, D.C. The town hall-style session will cover recent bank backlash, actions credit unions are taking to grow and maintain membership and the opportunity for changes in public policy that give credit unions added potential. Leading the session will be:
* Mark Wolff, senior vice president of communications, Credit Union National Association (CUNA); * Richard Gose, CUNA senior vice president of political affairs; and * Carol Payne, vice president of communications and marketing, California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.
“Credit unions have been given an unprecedented opportunity in today’s economic climate,” said Anne Legg, chair of the council and vice president of marketing, Cabrillo CU, San Diego. “Banks have the lowest trust levels and credit unions have very high trust levels. How can credit unions leverage this advantage? This session is essential--a get-together of hundreds that includes no-holds-barred discussion, dialogue and brainstorming and idea-sharing.” Following the session will be a Washington Insider’s Reception, where attendees can meet with leaders who interact with Congress, the Obama administration and the National Credit Union Administration.
