Minnesota’s 2021 Credit Union Awareness Initiative going strong. The campaign is a research-based effort to grow awareness of credit unions as the best financial partner for consumers. Digital media ads continue to drive consumers to the YourMoneyFurther.com website to learn more about the advantages of credit unions.
Though August 31, the campaign has garnered over 44 million digital impressions through Online Video, Banner Ads, Social Media and streaming TV ads delivered throughout the state. The Video Completion Rate for online ads is 57%, and streaming TV ads are 98%, showing consumers are continuing to watch the ads. Click through rates are meeting benchmarks and delivering consumers to the YourMoneyFurther website.
Earlier this summer, MnCUN deployed several out of home tactics to supplement the digital efforts, including:
A result report through August 31, 2021 is available for credit unions to review and share with their staff and Boards. Furthermore, CUNA’s Credit Union Awareness team recently released their July 2021 bi-annual research results, showing the campaign has made significant progress nationally as well.
The Awareness initiative represents the true spirit of the cooperative movement to help more consumers understand the advantages being a credit union member. With questions, please contact Andrea Molnau, VP Communications & Engagement, by email or 651-288-5527.

As Congress considers critical new infrastructure spending, policymakers are eyeing unconventional sources of revenue to fund their plans.
One proposal under consideration would require credit unions and other financial institutions to report to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) how much money has gone into and out of accounts holding more than $600.
This unprecedented access to consumers’ personal financial data raises several alarms for credit unions and their members:
Last week, the Minnesota Credit Union Network issued a GREAT alert: Tell Congress to Oppose New IRS Reporting Provisions. If you haven't already done so, please take a minute and to contact your Representatives and Senators and tell them not to jeopardize consumers’ personal financial privacy by allowing the IRS to access nontaxable deposit account information from credit unions and banks.
The House Ways and Means Committee will be considering this proposal in the next two weeks. MnCUN worked with Congressman Emmer’s office on a sign-on letter in opposition to financial institutions reporting to the IRS.
Additionally, CUNA issued an action alert and the Member Activation Program has templates and resources MAP credit unions can use to activate members to contact Congress.
President Biden’s COVID-19 Action Plan Could Mean Vaccine Mandates for Credit Unions: Last Thursday President Biden announced a multi-faceted plan that could mean vaccine requirements for credit unions.

Created in 2008, the Credit Union Builder Award honors an individual’s dedication to the success, growth, and vitality of the not-for-profit financial movement in Minnesota.
Dedications are typically made at a special time of significance to acknowledge their contributions to credit unions.
In total, 79 individuals have been designated as Credit Union Builders over the past nine years. The name of the recipients are permanently displayed in lobby of the state trade association, the Minnesota Credit Union Network, as a tribute to those who have dedicated time and energy to building the credit union movement.
The honorees (or their families, in the case of a memoriam contribution) receive acknowledgement from the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation, and donors are also listed online and in the Foundation’s annual report. A minimum $1,500 contribution is required to designate a Credit Union Builder Award.
With questions, contact Andrea Molnau, Executive Director of the Minnesota Credit Unions Foundation.
