State of finance: Why we must rebuild trust in the credit union industry

first_imgThe good news: credit unions and financial services firms did not place last in the 2015 Edelman global ranking of trust in industries (as they had done the four previous years.) The bad news: they came in second-to-last, besting only the media industry.It’s hardly surprising that financial services has become one of the least-trusted industries in the world. For one thing, people have yet to forgive the industry for its role in the financial crisis.

Winning on kindness: How to bring the credit union mission to life

first_imgI could certainly use a little more kindness in the world right now. What about you?On this episode, we’re joined by two guests from the Minnesota Credit Union Network, President & CEO Mark Cummins and Director of Engagement Ben Hering, to talk about CU FORWARD, a statewide day of kindness, during which credit unions of all sizes come together to participate in fundraising events, community service projects, and other volunteer opportunities.CU FORWARD Day emerged from three simple questions:How do we spread kindness?How can credit unions come together and do more than lobby for tax breaks?How can we grow the credit union movement and respond to the pressing challenges of our time?CU FORWARD Day, which is coming up on Monday, October 12, now touches tens of thousands of people.

In a year when credit union members have lost jobs, juggled childcare needs, contended with police brutality and civil unrest, and struggled to protect their own health and the health of their loved ones, one simple act of kindness can go a long way.Remarkable Credit Union · Winning on Kindness: How to Bring the Credit Union Mission to Life ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
