Minnesota Awareness Campaign Update Webinar October 2

Work continues to accelerate toward a January 2019 launch of CUNA’s Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union™ campaign here in Minnesota.


As demonstrated over the last couple years, Minnesota credit unions recognize the need to increase consumer awareness, and a collaborative, comprehensive effort can make a difference. The Choose Minnesota Credit Unions campaign was just the first chapter on our journey. A collective, sustained, national initiative gives us a broader opportunity to encourage more Minnesotans to open their eyes to the tremendous value credit unions bring to the communities we serve.


Join us for an Awareness Initiative update webinar on Tuesday, October 2 at 3 p.m.  For log in information, please contact Andrea Molnau, Vice President Communications & Engagement by email or phone 651-288-5527.
