CUNA Council membership surpasses 1000
MADISON, Wis. (1/16/09)--The CUNA Marketing and Business Development Council (CMBDC)’s membership has surpassed 1,000 members. “Even in the face of tough economic times, the council is recognized as a critical resource for credit union marketing and business development professionals,” said Anne Legg, council chair and vice president of marketing at Cabrillo CU, San Diego. To celebrate its milestone, the council ran a promotion in which members sent in their success stories for the opportunity to win a $1,000 Visa gift card. Members were asked to explain how council membership helped them or their credit unions, or about a particular CMBDC experience or event that stands out in their minds. The winner was Revonda Golden-Dean from $58-million-asset Lowland CU in Morristown, Tenn. “The Marketing and Business Development Council has been a life saver at times. Being a one-person department is really stressful--some days I can't even think,” her entry said. “The members on the listserv seem like friends I haven't met--yet they think like I do. They have great ideas and they love to share them. Some of their insight is uncanny and amazing at the same time. This is the whole credit union philosophy ‘People Helping People,’” she said. “The success stories highlight the value of networking among members and the benefits of leveraging the many available council tools and resources,” Legg said.
