Social media wave highlights CUs on social media | 2021-08-05
The Illinois Credit Union System (ICUS) called on the credit union movement on July 30th to create a digital “wave” that reached more than 22 million people on social media. The goal – to spark high-energy conversations about why people love their credit unions.
More than 700 organizations in 48 states and nine countries participated, including credit unions, leagues, associations and industry partners.
“Credit unions make a real difference to their members because they put people above profit. I would like to thank everyone who has joined us in making this effort such a resounding success, “said ICUS President / CEO Tom Kane. “I’m especially grateful to LSC for donating $ 25,000 to a raffle for participating credit unions. We were delighted that the Hawaii Credit Union League was selected and they selected the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network in Honolulu for funding. “
Thousands of credit union workers, volunteers, families, and friends have jumped over to their favorite social media platform (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram) to post a message, picture, or video to show why # ilovemycreditunion.
