HARRISBURG, Pa. (9/18/13)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association's board of directors approved PCUA's 2014 membership dues, with no increases, at its Monday meeting. The dues formula will remain the same for the third consecutive year.
Dues will be based on June 30 Call Report data (Life is a Highway Sept. 17).
"I commend the board for its continued leadership in enabling the association to maintain the same dues formula for the last three years, as well as to continue funding a significant part of our statewide iBelong public awareness campaign," said Jim McCormack, association CEO.
Also, the board decided to continue Pennsylvania's iBelong campaign in 2014 on a regional basis.
iBelong is the only mandatory statewide public awareness/advocacy initiative in the country, PCUA said. The campaign promotes Pennsylvania credit unions in media such as TV, cable, radio, newspaper and magazines. Four other states have adopted iBelong during the past five years (News Now 9/3/13).
Other actions of the board meeting included modifying the Paul E. Kanjorski Advocacy Scholarship to the Paul E. Kanjorski Young Professionals Advocacy Scholarship, to specifically reach young credit union professionals, ages 18-35. The scholarship covers registration, lodging, and travel to the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference, Feb. 23-27.
The PCUA board also ratified the merger of the Scranton and Wyoming Valley Chapters into the newly created Northeast Pennsylvania Chapter of Credit Unions.
