NAPERVILLE, Ill. (2/15/10)--The Illinois Credit Union League offered a free webinar about Project ZIP Code (PZC) to its member credit unions.
The session, facilitated by Kristen Prather, grassroots manager for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), incorporated two demonstrations, how to install and upload data, and how the program’s website, www.pzconline, can be used by credit unions and leagues. Membership information is secure with the program and PZC numbers can help the league in candidate interviews. PZC was developed by CUNA to use ZIP code data to count the number of credit union members that live in each local, state and federal legislative district. Using ZIP code data, PZC identifies which district a member lives in. The data can be used as a lobbying tool. Only the number of members in a district is transmitted to the website.
