After the hugely successful launch of last year’s social media blitz –#ILoveMyCreditUnion – the Illinois Credit Union League (ILCUL) is planning the next round on July 29, 2022. Mark your calendars now!
Last year, on one single day, the trending hashtag reached more than 22 MILLION people in 9 countries – and this year is likely to be even bigger!
The idea is simple! On July 29, you can participate by making a social media post on any or all platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, using #ILoveMyCreditUnion. The idea is to get that hashtag trending, bringing more attention to our great industry.
You can take this as far as you want! Last year, some credit unions had members sign their name on a pre-designed graphic, and then displayed at their credit union. Many credit unions posted pre-made graphics, and some credit union employees took selfies and posted that way, like our own President/CEO Jeff Olson and Communications Specialist Shawn Marie Brummer, shown below.
Last year, here in the Dakotas, we had nearly 30 credit unions (plus multiple branches in many instances) joining in the fun, as you can see in the photos below! We hope to have even more this year.
There is a wide assortment of turn-key tools for you to use – premade graphics, selfie signs, and even printable engagement signs for your members to sign and display at your credit union! Find all this and more here. Be sure to click the “Sign Up” link to register – this is to let the ILCUL track how many organizations are participating, nothing more. There is no commitment, no charges, no obligations. Let’s do this, and let’s have some fun!
