Closing the awareness gap and communicating the credit union difference

first_img“Credit unions are small and less secure than banks.” Credit unions do not have the federal insurance that banks do, which has caused misconceptions among consumers about credit unions for some time. Deposits with credit unions are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), which offers the same type of coverage that banks have. Credit unions are held to the same regulations as banks and often times face more restrictions on their investments and loans. “Credit unions are primarily for people in need.” Contrary to this belief, anyone can join a credit union. As mentioned above, each credit union has a commonality between its members. However, this does not mean that members have to be in need of financial, medical or professional support. Through education and awareness, the goal is to help debunk misconceptions about credit unions for non-credit union members and to shed light on the truth about the credit union difference. Credit unions can take part in the effort to “close the gap” through every interaction with members and non-members alike.The entire webinar was recorded and is available for viewing by all registered subscribers of Engagement Builder at One-third of all U.S. citizens are currently members of a credit union. However, most have little to no idea what a credit union actually is and cannot correctly articulate how a credit union differs from a bank. For non-members, the lack of awareness is more acute.CUNA recently launched a Consumer Awareness Initiative to conduct nationwide research and help the industry create top of mind consumer awareness of and belief in credit unions as the best option in financial services. Myles Bristowe, vice president of marketing strategy and leader of Engagement Builder for PSCU, was invited to sit on the Consumer Awareness Advisory Group made up of a diverse cross-section of marketing leaders from various sectors of the credit union system.  The findings from the consumer research revealed a number of surprises and glaring inconsistencies in the way credit unions have been positioning themselves. These findings undoubtedly contribute to the sub-10 percent market share numbers credit unions are working to improve, despite having over 110 million U.S. members.On March 8, 2017, the Engagement Builder team hosted a webinar to share the provocative findings of the research with special guest speakers, Douglas Kiker, chief strategic communications officer for CUNA, and Graeme Trayner, vice president of the Brands and Communications practice at Greenberg, Quinlan and Rosner. Over 400 credit union leaders and marketers participate in the webinar.The research findings shared during the webinar revealed that credit unions are widely trusted by consumers and are best known for good rates, especially on car loans. However, there are several “myths” that consumers believe about credit unions:“I am not eligible to join a credit union.” The biggest difference between banks and credit unions is that a credit union serves a specific group of people or community. Criteria can include where someone lives, their profession, college affiliation or religious beliefs. With so many credit unions available today, non-members need to understand that eligibility guidelines are much broader than they might think. Consumers should conduct their own research to find a credit union that would be the best fit for their needs. center_img “Credit unions have limited ATMs and branches, which translates into limited access to money.” Credit unions are cooperative in nature, meaning they work together to provide the best options for all members. Credit union members have access to shared banking networks without incurring fees and can utilize sister credit unions to perform banking activities at other locations. The options are not limited, just simply different from those offered by a traditional bank. 158SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Duane Hogg Duane Hogg is a digital strategist and credit union storyteller, creating content that compels Millennials to not only think but also act.

The future of Croatian tourist destinations is based on sustainable development and promotional activities

first_imgThis year’s Days of Croatian Tourism, which are held on Mali Lošinj this year, bring together more than 1.300 participants, mostly tourism workers and workers from related industries who participate in a series of thematic lectures, workshops and round tables.Certainly the gathering that aroused the greatest interest on the second day of this tourist event was the one on the development of Croatian tourism, which brought together representatives of the Government of the Republic of Croatia and tourist workers. Conceived as an interactive discussion between government representatives and tourism workers, this meeting answered a number of questions, including the most current ones; where there are a number of record seasons, what is the limit of sustainability and the limit of tourists that can receive certain parts of our coast, how to get closer to elite tourism and with an equal number of arrivals to generate higher revenues, how to extend the three months of the season to the whole year to be interested in the interior of the country, where to find a skilled workforce and how to activate Croatian capital.The round table was moderated by TV and radio host Mislav Togonal, and in addition to Minister Cappelli, the round table was attended by Minister of Regional Development and EU Funds Gabrijela Žalac, State Secretary at the Ministry of State Property Tomislav Boban, State Secretary at the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and infrastructure Maja Markovčić Kostelac, State Secretary of the Ministry of Labor and Pension System Katarina Ivanković Knežević and Deputy Director of the Tax Administration Marijana Vuraić Kudeljan. The meeting emphasized the importance of the joint connection of the mentioned ministries and announced some joint projects that will be followed by changes in the accompanying legal frameworks related to the law on tourist land, the law on providing services in tourism and the law on concessions. The main challenges facing tourism today are the lack of adequate workforce, the need to strengthen continental and health tourism, expansion throughout the year and unresolved ownership of existing brownfield facilities. As channels for solving these challenges, legal changes have been announced, the establishment of regional centers of competence aimed at educating the workforce and new Job Days to be organized early next year with the aim of connecting the workforce.The work program of the second day of the Croatian Tourism Day also gave rise to guidelines for the implementation of Croatian tourism, which according to experts gathered at this tourist event must be based on sustainable development and management and building a strong brand identity and its promotion on the market. Croatia is one of the recognizable tourist destinations in the world, and how much space there is for improvement and even better promotion on the global market was discussed at the round table “Tourist destinations – management, marketing and branding”. How close it is or how far the Croatian tourist brand stands out from neighboring Slovenia or the tourist superpower of Great Britain was discussed by the participants of this round table; Director for Strategies and Communications of the British National Tourism Organization Visit Britain Patricia Yates, Director for Strategic Projects and Communication in the Office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Great Britain Campaign Representative Daniel Walpole, Director of the National Tourism Organization of Slovenia, Maja Pak Director of the Austrian Tourism Office Lech-Zürs, Hermann Fercher and the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board, Kristjan Staničić.Thus, Patricia Yates emphasized the importance of understanding the needs of tourists, ie their demand, and on the basis of which it is necessary to create a tourist offer and quality promotion of the same. Maja Pak presented a new strategy for the development of Slovenian tourism, within which, in terms of marketing, four macro regions and 34 top destinations have been defined, while the importance of the brand’s strength was especially emphasized by Hermann Fercher. Director of the CNTB Head Office Kristjan Staničić announced a new package of laws that will provide the system of tourist boards with new frameworks of action with emphasis on activities related to strengthening the national tourist brand, but also on the activities of destination management organizations. At the end of the discussion, the presentation was given by Daniel Walpole, who introduced the audience to the Great Britain campaign, which he said has the main goal of generally increasing the prosperity of the United Kingdom and which will be implemented in 144 markets in the coming years.Sustainable tourism is necessary for the sustainable development of the destination. That is why the lecture on sustainable tourism from the Hrvoje Carić Institute for Tourism attracted the interest of representatives of the tourism industry. The record tourist results that have been following Croatian tourism since the beginning of the year, in addition to increasing the number of arrivals and overnight stays of visitors and higher incomes, also bring challenges that are important to deal with according to the principles of sustainable development.The impact of tourism on the natural heritage, the ratio of the number of inhabitants in tourist destinations and the extremely large number of tourists who visit the destination, especially during the summer months, are challenges faced by many tourist destinations around the world. destination management was highlighted in the lecture.

UW men’s hockey secures first win of season

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s hockey team has had a lot of learning moments since the season began, but had not translated those lessons into a win before this weekend.However, a loss away from tying the worst start in program history, the Badgers (1-8-1 overall) finally overcame their slow start and knocked off Ferris State 5-3 Saturday night at the Kohl Center.Like the first nine games of the season, the series finale against the Bulldogs (7-7-1) featured its fair share of ups and downs and adversity for UW to battle through. After trailing twice in the first period-and-a-half and giving up a third period lead for the second night in-a-row, Wisconsin seized an opportunity five minutes and 29 seconds into the final period to take the lead for good.In the final seconds of a power play, UW’s Grant Besse entered the zone along the right wing boards. Besse had the puck swept off his stick, but Joseph LaBate retrieved it on the right goal line and backhanded a pass into the slot. Badgers’ freshman defenseman Jack Dougherty was the only one in the vicinity of the puck and blasted a slap shot over the left shoulder of Bulldogs goaltender CJ Motte for what ended up being the game-winning goal.“It was a really weird play, I saw a rolling puck and I figured I could somewhat put it where I wanted to,” Dougherty said of his goal. “I just let it go, and there was a guy kind of close so I figured I might as well put a little quick release on it, and it happened to go in.”Wisconsin dug itself an early hole in the game, allowing a goal just three minutes and 54 seconds into the opening frame. But as was the occasion throughout the contest, UW fought back and scored its inaugural first period goal of the season to tie the game at one a little more than eight minutes later courtesy of Besse, who had two goals in the game.As head coach Mike Eaves discussed after the game, Wisconsin benefited from winning smaller battles throughout the game.“The thing that our guys did is they built on little victories during the course of the game, and we kept building and we got stronger as the game went on,” Eaves said. “You could feel the energy on the bench increase as the game went along.”Wisconsin went into the second period with the score knotted at one, but again Ferris State struck back and took the lead at the 7:22 mark of the second. This time though, the Badgers answered the goal immediately with one of their own when freshman Corbin McGuire netted his first career goal on assists from Matt Ustaski and Jake Linhart just 37 seconds later.Wisconsin notched another goal with just one minute and 44 seconds left in the second to take the lead into the locker room going into the third period for the second consecutive night.However, the Bulldogs scored first in the final period just like they had done in the previous two to tie the score for the third time. But after that goal two minutes and nine seconds in, Wisconsin answered yet again with Dougherty’s goal three minutes later to gain the lead along with the highest scoring output of the season to date.Besse would seal the Badgers’ first win with an empty netter in the final two minutes, while UW goaltender Joel Rumpel tallied 30 saves to earn his 50th career victory.“You watch a lot of pro athletes that when they haven’t scored for a while and they get that goal, they reach back and drop the monkey off their back,” Eaves said. “We can do that collectively as a group tonight because of the win.”Despite not registering a win Friday night, the Badgers ended their season-opening losing streak at eight with a tie against the Bulldogs.Unlike Saturday night’s high scoring affair, the first game of the series featured a goaltending battle between Wisconsin’s Rumpel and Ferris State’s Motte.Wisconsin outshot the Bulldogs 8-7 in the opening frame, and Motte made several impressive saves, including one with the toe of his right pad to keep the game scoreless after the first 20 minutes.Then in the second, Ferris State took control of the game and had 11 shots on Rumpel, which included several quality scoring chances. Rumpel, a Hobey Baker award finalist a season ago, came up big for his team with saves on each of those 11 shots and had some big glove stops to keep up his end of the shutout.Wisconsin took the lead a little more than two minutes into the final period, but the Bulldogs seized control of the game for the remainder of regulation into overtime. The Badgers mustered just three more shots after their goal, and although Ferris State scored at 7:29 to tie the game at one, Rumpel came up huge to help the Badgers salvage the tie.After the series finale Saturday, Eaves assessed the senior netminder’s play over the two games.“It was good all weekend,” Eaves said. “You can just put an A+ for his efforts this weekend. He was there when we needed him. Again, Joel is going to cover up a lot of mistakes that we make in front of him and he did that a lot tonight for us. He was a big part of the equation in asserting the victory.”Not only did Rumpel stop the 17 shots between the third period and overtime to give the Badgers their first non-loss of the year, but he also stonewalled each of the Bulldogs’ three chances in the shootout to conclude one of his better performances of the season.With an all-around effort from Rumpel and what had been an anemic offense, UW finally got into the win column this weekend, hoping to build off the triumph and make another turnaround from a slow start to the season.“It’s been a long time coming,” forward Matt Paape said. “I know we’ve got a young team, but hats off to the young guys and the older guys for sticking through it, staying together, keep battling against each other each week in practice. It was definitely a good win for us, and it was nice to be able to earn it.”last_img read more
