Minn. Credit Unions Provide Insights in CU Broadcast Interviews

Recently, CU Broadcast host Mike Lawson interviewed a number of attendees during the Minnesota Credit Union Network Annual Conference in Bloomington. CUbroadcast is a credit union talk show. It is a collection of informative, online video interviews discussing today’s credit union issues and trends with some of the industry’s finest innovators, ambassadors, and game changers.


MnCUN President & CEO Mark Cummins joined the Studio Lounge to discuss his thoughts on how credit unions have been able to increase sophistication while maintaining the strength of grassroots advocacy.


Studio Lounge interviews are available on the CU Broadcast website.


The CU Broadcast Studio Lounge was sponsored by OnApproach. CU Broadcast donates $10 to Credit Unions for Kids for every interview conducted.
