The League seeks content from credit unions to fill new
The League is asking credit unions to provide stories
and content for its newest advocacy tool, the
REAL Solutions "For A Reason" website. The
site highlights Wisconsin credit unions' REAL Solutions
and its content, organized by chapter, consists of video
testimonials from CU staff, volunteers and members, as
well as news stories and images detailing credit union
outreach. However, the site
is brand new and needs your content. Through April,
League staff will be coordinating video opportunities
with credit unions through the chapter system to film
new content. These videos need only be a minute or two
and could be even shorter - a non-glitzy, casual
explanation of how your credit union's efforts impact
your members' lives, communities or local youth. At any
time you are welcome to provide (or arrange with us to
take) a short clip that shows the very personal,
meaningful impact your help has had in a member's life.
are interested in sharing a story, please contact
Chad Helminak, Web Producer and Media Relations Manager
at (800) 242-0833, Ext. 6012, as soon as possible to
coordinate a video shoot with a League representative.
