partners, have received third place in the 2011 edition of the "Pollies," a series of awards that are presented each year by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC). The awards sometimes are described as the equivalent of the Oscars for the political consulting industry. Compass Media Group produced the ads. A direct mail piece for Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), entitled "Yucca Mountain," won bronze in the best direct mail for an independent expenditure campaign category. This independent expenditure was paid for by CULAC. CUNA and the North Carolina CU League also won a bronze in the membership communications category for their partisan communications piece for Rep. Larry Kissell, entitled "Tough." This ad was sent to thousands of credit union members. Both of the award-winning pieces featured in extremely competitive reelection campaigns. CUNA Vice President of Political Affairs Trey Hawkins thanked the AAPC for its recognition of the quality of CUNA’s political communications. To view the ads in full, use the resource links.
