ST. PAUL, Minn. (1/27/11)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) welcomed 20 participants to its Vendor Involvement Program (V.I.P.) on Jan. 1. The V.I.P., created in 2005, provides service organizations with an opportunity to work with MnCUN and increase their visibility among Minnesota credit unions. Designed to optimize business relationships with the state's credit unions, the advertising program offers annual meeting packages, exposure and opportunities to participate in new MnCUN initiatives. Of the 20 organizations, four are new, while 16 have renewed their participation. The new vendors are:
* AmeriCU; * CRW Insurance; * John M. Floyd & Associates; and * StarWest Chevrolet Honda Sports.
The program "gives credit union service providers an easy way to get their message in front of Minnesota credit unions," said Mark D. Cummins, MnCUN president/CEO. "In a time when so many companies are looking to make the most out of their advertising dollars, this packaged program provides opportunities throughout the year to speak directly to their target audience." Participants must offer professional service, quality product lines and competitive pricing, and must appreciate the qualities that make credit unions unique and understanding the importance of service. Participation does not constitute an endorsement by MnCUN.
