#CUNAChat takes CU awareness to Twitter
WASHINGTON (8/1/14)--As credit unions approach the 100 million membership milestone, the Credit Union National Association  took the credit union awareness conversation to the Twittersphere Thursday afternoon.
 
CUNA hosted credit unions, volunteers and member-advocates as participants in its latest #CUNAchat on Twitter.



CUNA posted 10 questions for participants, focusing primarily on the meaning of credit unions and how they serve their communities. Chat participants responded with a barrage of tweets that provided a litany of reasons for consumers to join the credit union movement.
 
"This chat shows the power of the movement, coming together to raise awareness to consumers about credit union structure, community involvement and benefits of membership," said Amaia Kirtland, CUNA social and digital media manager.

"Reaching 100 million members is a significant milestone for all of us who love credit unions. Twitter chats help connect individuals to each other to learn new things and to develop new interests.  The cooperative nature of credit unions amplifies the reach of our message, that we are the preferred financial institution for 100 million credit union members and other American's should use a credit union for their financial services needs as well."
 
The 10 questions posed by CUNA:
  • What is a credit union?
  • Who is eligible to join a credit union?
  • What makes a credit union a different kind of a financial institution?
  • How is the credit union's structure/different from a bank's?
  • What are the benefits of being a credit union member?
  • How do credit unions impact their communities?
  • How do members control their credit unions?
  • Why are you a credit union member?
  • Why should consumers join a credit union?
  • How do you find a credit union that's right for you?
