MnCUN kicks off international co-op year with video
ST. PAUL, Minn. (1/4/12)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) is joining cooperatives worldwide in celebrating the International Year of Cooperatives (IYC) in 2012, with a video message featuring MnCUN President /CEO Mark D. Cummins.

MnCUN used the video to kick-off its year-long initiative to tout the characteristics and benefits of cooperatives.

Designated by the United Nations, IYC highlights the contributions cooperatives have made to help reduce poverty, create jobs and promote socio-economic development worldwide. In particular, IYC celebrates a different way of doing business--one focused on human need and a model where the members, who own and govern the business, collectively enjoy the benefits, said MnCUN.

As one of the largest cooperative sectors, credit unions understand the value of the cooperative structure and the positive influence they have on local and global economies, said MnCUN. Consequently, credit unions enthusiastically join this celebration and effort to inform consumers about the cooperative alternative to traditional businesses, MnCUN added.
