Some Choices Matter: A national branding campaign experiment

first_img 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr I’ve heard a number of people in the past few weeks talk about the need for a national branding campaign for credit unions.I can see both sides of the argument. Many such campaigns fail. They cost a ton.  And free riders benefit from the effort, without donating any sweat equity into the campaign.I’ll say this, though. Many of the best movements weren’t orchestrated. They simply sprang up when the time was right.So here’s today’s experiment. There are roughly 1,700 people that read this blog. I’ll ask each of you a favor. Watch this video.If you agree with the video, do me another favor. Post it to your Facebook page. Tweet it. If there are other social media channels that you use, share it through them. continue reading »last_img read more

Members are not just a number

first_img continue reading » At Pelican State Credit Union in Baton Rouge, La., members in need of loans are more than credit scores. They’re separate stories.“When we review the credit report, we ask a ton of questions,” Jessica Oliver, director of financial outreach at the $311 million asset credit union, tells the CUNA News Podcast. “We want to make sure the member’s story matches what we’re seeing in print.”Often, members who have blemishes on their credit report will say they’ve had a family emergency, a death in the family, a job loss, or another life event that caused them to fall behind on paying their bills, she says. 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications and media relations, policy or fiscal policy.“House interns not only learn about the legislative process, but they also have the opportunity to discuss key issues with lawmakers and network with countless other professionals from all over Indiana,” Lyness said. “This internship helps students make connections and jumpstart their careers.”These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through April.

Dyche backs Clarets to turn corner

first_img Press Association The Clarets go in search of their first top-flight win at their ninth attempt against Everton at Turf Moor on Sunday. A second-half lapse cost his men dear against West Ham last week but Dyche is adamant there is still the desire within his camp to turn things round. Dyche said: “We are having to learn as we go. “There is no doubting the players’ physical power, their energy, their endeavour and belief – but it comes down to quality and awareness and experience. “We haven’t got a very experienced Premier League squad and we have had some tough lessons already. “We believe this group is honest enough to keep learning and not be broken by it. You just get dented and you take the knocks and come off the ropes and get ready to take it again. “We hope to use that mentality wisely over the season and the next step is to use it to learn how to win.” Dyche hopes midfielder Dean Marney will be fit to return after missing three games with a hamstring injury while Steven Reid is also pushing for a recall. Despite Everton’s inconsistent start to the season and a midweek trip to France in the UEFA Europa League, Dyche is under no illusions about the difficulties of finally claiming a three-point haul on Sunday. Dyche added: “They have had an indifferent start to the season by their standards but they are a great club with a great manager and these are the kinds of challenges we wanted last year. “The players want it and the town wants it. We have gone up to a different level and we are creating chances. it is all about delivering that cutting edge that we know is there.” center_img Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists his side have the character to bounce back from their growing streak of disappointments and beat the odds by securing Barclays Premier League survival. last_img read more

Sterling backed to handle flak

first_img The 20-year-old’s reputation has suffered considerably and in recent months he has been booed on England duty and during City pre-season games. That could spill over into the season but midfielder Fernandinho believes he will take it in his stride. The Brazilian said: “I think he is a strong character with the right personality. I remember seeing him in an interview talking about his determination to win trophies and I’m sure he will be able to manage the situation.” City’s other high-profile summer recruit, Fabian Delph, is unavailable for the opening weeks of the season because of injury but Fernandinho is convinced the squad is stronger for the arrival of the pair. Fernandinho expects to make a stronger challenge after last season’s distant second-placed finish to Chelsea and also wants to make a bigger impact in the Champions League. The 30-year-old said: “I believe the squad is strong enough to fight for both trophies and I feel very enthusiastic about our chances this season, especially in the Champions League. It is going to be my third season in the competition and (winning it) is something that motivates me.” The trip to Tony Pulis’ West Brom, followed by next week’s clash with champions Chelsea, makes for a potentially tricky opening to the season for City. Fernandinho said: “It is a tough start against tough teams, especially the Chelsea game, but we have worked very hard during the week and our objective is to start with six points to start the Premier League in a good way.” England forward Sterling will be the main focus of attention as he makes his City debut in their Barclays Premier League opener at West Brom on Monday night. Sterling joined City from Liverpool in an acrimonious £49million transfer over the summer that attracted much negative publicity. Raheem Sterling is tough enough to handle any crowd abuse this season, according to new Manchester City team-mate Fernandinho.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
