CUNA Diamond Award for Outstanding Marketing, Business Development Achievements Given at National Conference in Washington, D.C.
PORTLAND, Maine - cPort Credit Union was recently honored with a Diamond Award, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.
The award was presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing and Business Development Council, a national network comprised of nearly 1,000 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 34 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.
cPort Credit Union won the Community/PR Program category for its entry, entitled “Riverton & Beyond!” cPort Credit Union has sponsored the program which encourages students in the third, fourth and fifth grades to think about higher education. Students are asked to write an essay about what they are interested in now and how that might carry into future college studies. Five, $100 college scholarships were given at each grade level.
The program is not only popular with students, but teachers and administrators as well. A similar program has been developed for the entire Augusta School District, and those students are currently involved in the scholarship process. Scholarships at both schools are awarded in May.
“The Diamond Awards recognize the best-of-the-best in credit union marketing, advertising, and business development,” said Anne Legg council chair and vice president of marketing for Cabrillo Credit Union in San Diego, Calif. “It takes hard work, imagination, and perseverance to be selected as a Diamond Award winner from nearly 1,000 entries.”
Award winners were recognized at the council’s 17th annual conference held March 21-24 in Washington, DC. For more information on the Diamond Awards or to view the entire list of winners, go to www.cunamarketingcouncil.org.
