New Web page celebrates creation of CUNA
WASHINGTON (10/7/09)--Videos of the inspirational speeches given at the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), recorded by CUNA staff, are now up and ready for viewing on the CUNA website. The speeches and a recreation of a historic photo of CUNA's founders took place at the Sept. 16 commemoration of CUNA’s founding. Current credit union leaders and descendants of credit union pioneers met in Estes Park, Colo., the original location where American credit union pioneers developed and ratified the original CUNA charter three-quarters of a century before. The commemoration of CUNA’s founding was marked by speeches, a celebratory toast, dedication of a new plaque commemorating the founding of the nation’s largest credit union organization, and the restaging of an iconic photo of CUNA founders taken in 1934, featuring credit union movement officials, supporters and officers of today. Speaking at the event were CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica; CUNA Chairman Kris Mecham; American Association of Credit Union Leagues Chairman Rosie Holub; Kathy Pelletier, granddaughter of CUNA founder and first Managing Director Roy F. Bergengren; and Catherine and Bill Herring, children of CUNA founder and movement pioneer Louise McCarren Herring. The videos, as well as a downloadable photo of those who joined to recreate the iconic photo of the founders of CUNA, can be viewed at the new CUNA web page.
