WASHINGTON (7/31/08)--Capitol Hill commuters--especially congressional staff--were greeted Wednesday morning with chocolate coins celebrating the “Little Guy” and his website in the final days before the summer recess. The coins, developed by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) as part of its “Change the Conversation” program, were emblazoned on one side with the words “Credit Unions are big on people, not profit.” On the other side, the coin stated: “For another treat, visit www.lookoutforthelittleguy.org.” “Our mission in the ‘Change the Conversation’ program is to talk about credit unions in clear, undistorted terms, rather than those used by the banking industry and others,” said CUNA’s Communication Vice President Pat Keefe.

“For example, we point out that credit unions represent only 6% of the financial services marketplace--compared to the 94% held by the banking industry,” he said. Nearly 4,000 chocolate coins were distributed to Capitol Hill commuters on both the House and Senate sides. Use the resource links below to learn more.
