Make an Impact - Join the Social Media Blitz!
Credit Unions across the country are going to unite to make a splash on July 30 with an “I Love My Credit Union” social media blitz! This is the brainchild of our friends at the Illinois Credit Union League, who wanted to do something to inspire nationwide involvement of leagues, credit unions, and members, and connect those conversations with a common hashtag. (Shhhh – we are not supposed to use the hashtag until July 30!) This is simple to do! Everything you need to participate is just a few clicks away on the resource hub. Here, you can sign up to participate and access everything you’ll need to plan and engage members in this exciting, nationwide collaboration. You’re welcome to personalize the materials with your own branding, design your own content, and add those unique touches that will speak to your membership.
