* HARRISBURG, Pa. (2/10/09)--Due to overwhelming demand, Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) have changed the location of their town hall meeting Wednesday. The meeting will be held at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey, 4650 Lindle Road, Harrisburg, said PCUA. The meeting will address actions by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) about corporate credit unions and their impact on natural-person credit unions (Life is a Highway Feb. 9) … * JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (2/10/09)--Arkansas FCU President/CEO Larry Biernacki presented a check for $73,000 to Arkansas Children's Hospital Foundation Vice President Fred Scarborough at a press conference at the hospital Feb. 3. Arkansas Federal employees and members raise $36,500 in the past year through several fundraisers, and the credit union's board voted to match the money, bringing the total to $73,000. Since 1998, the credit union has contributed more than $415,000 to the hospital as part of the Credit Unions for Kids program, a national sponsor of the Children's Miracle Network. Pictured are, from left: Scarborough; Denise Goforth, marketing manager at Arkansas Federal; and the hospital's Kim Dupas, senior community development coordinator; Biernacki; and Gloriane Kabat, child life and education director.

(2/10/09)--Danny Citron, 76, of Longmont, Colo., turned the key, the car started, and he walked away a winner in Elevations CU's $20,000 car giveaway promotion. Citron had the option of taking the car his key started--a Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition vehicle--or selecting either a $20,000 credit at Automotive Avenues or $14,000 in cash. He opted for the cash. Five finalists in the event were Joy McElroy, 87, of Boulder; Christopher Church, 48, of Broomfield; Samantha Vazquez, 31, of Longmont; Rebekah Adams, 18, Longmont; and Citron. They became eligible by opening new accounts at the credit union between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. Each attended a key-turning event. The promotion aimed to increase new membership, and Elevations reported a "sizeable increase" in new member growth compared with fourth quarter 2007 growth. (Photo provided by Elevations CU) …
