* JERSEY CITY, N.J. (4/15/10)--On April 1, Liberty Savings FCU launched its "CURE" membership campaign to raise awareness of the opportunities and benefits of joining a credit union (The Daily Exchange April 14). The name refers to helping consumers find the right "medicine" for financial "ailments" they might be experiencing at other financial institutions. Staff, pictured here, will wear medical scrubs and lab coats throughout the campaign. In addition to promotions in its branches, the credit union is advertising in local newspapers and has banner ads on NJ.com. It also will conduct several financial literacy seminars. "We want to help consumers realize there is an alternative to the high fees, high interest rates and bad service they may be experiencing in their dealings with other financial institutions," said Sean McDonald, chief marketing officer.
