SACRAMENTO, Calif. (4/7/14)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have launched WeOwnOurBank.com, an online and social media credit union awareness initiative.
The initiative's Facebook page, Twitter account (@WeOwnOurBank) and website feature content that is focused on consumer issues. Besides resources, new and budget-loan calculators, WeOwnOurBank.com urges consumers to invest in their community by becoming a member of their local credit union.
"We look forward to helping generate interest in how credit unions can be the answer to so many consumers who are searching for a trusted financial partner--one they can take ownership in and rely on," said Diana Dykstra, president/CEO of the leagues.
Information will also be posted on the "Unite For Good" work that credit unions do in their communities, along with facts to help individuals and families make a smarter choice when considering their primary financial institution. Viewers are also urged to visit aSmarterChoice.org to find a local credit union they can join.
The leagues are encouraging those responsible for social media at California and Nevada credit unions to assist the WeOwnOurBank.com effort by following the initiative's Twitter feeds and Facebook posts and re-tweeting and sharing posts.
