HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. (4/4/14)--With 80 years serving New Jersey credit unions in the books, the New Jersey Credit Union League wants to commemorate its 80th anniversary by highlighting the various ways the state's credit unions serve their members.
To accomplish this, the league is asking member credit unions to provide examples of how they have represented the league's motto, "Banking You Can Trust," through its "80 for 80" program.
Credit union submissions can range from helping a family avoid foreclosure to helping a high school student pay for college to helping a small business open its doors.
The league is also asking for credit unions to submit scholarships, reality fairs or any other community events that they've orchestrated.
"Consider all that your credit union has done this year and has yet to do," a press release announcing the program said. "You can even send in information on a future event for 2014."
All photos, which are also encouraged, and stories will be featured at the league's 80th annual meeting and convention Sept. 21-23 in Atlantic City, N.J.
For examples of efforts credit unions already have submitted, visit the league's website. Send examples to firstname.lastname@example.org
