BOSTON (6/19/09)--Attendees at America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC) next week can pledge their "True Commitment" to credit unions by signing a "Sign of Commitment" for a 5-by-8 signature wall. With each signature, they also will raise funds for the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). CUNA Mutual Group will contribute $5 to NCUF for every ACUC attendee who signs the wall. The wall will be displayed at CUNA Mutual's booth, No. 209, in the ACUC exhibit hall. Everyone who signs will receive a wristband to wear as a symbol of their commitment to the credit union movement. The additional support will go toward NCUF's Development Education program, which helps credit unions leverage their commitment to cooperative principles as a competitive advantage in the financial marketplace. Nearly 900 people have earned the Credit Union Development Educator designation. Throughout 2009, the centennial year of the first credit union law, CUNA Mutual has taken the Sign of Commitment to major credit union events to honor credit unions and their members. It was first displayed at the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington. During the GAC, 600 credit union advocates signed their commitment and raised $3,000 for NCUF (News Now Feb. 25). America's CU Conference and Expo will be held Sunday through Wednesday at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. It is presented by CUNA.
