How Is Your CU Aiding Members In Sequestration? Tell Your Story
WASHINGTON (3/4/13)--Credit unions helping members face furloughs implemented from the federal spending cuts that began Friday have an opportunity to "unite for good" and share stories of what they are doing through the Credit Union National Association and News Now.

Last week during its 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference, CUNA unveiled a "Unite For Good" rallying cry for credit unions. CUNA called upon credit unions to work toward a movement-wide strategic vision of creating a financial services environment in which "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner." Use the resource link below to see the Unite For Good webpage.

As News Now spotlights examples of the extra steps credit unions take to secure their members' trust in a series of stories highlighting the help sparked by sequestration cuts, credit unions also can e-mail their information to Uniteforgood@cuna.com, as well as newsnow@cuna.coop.

For examples of credit unions' efforts for furloughed members, see related News Now article, CUs To Furloughees: 'Be Assured, We've Got Your Back.'
