Two of my greatest passions are children and credit unions, and I’ve found a way to help both with our new subscription program, appropriately called, “The Team Builder”. The Team Builder is designed to help credit union executives by streaming helpful information directly to their inboxes. It is also designed to dedicate a generous portion of the subscription proceeds directly to Children’s Miracle Network’s CU4kids program.
Credit Union BUSINESS magazine was created nearly 12 years ago specifically to help senior level department heads run their credit unions. And, we really hit the target with our regular business related columns addressing specific job titles; the “Team” in Team Builder. For the team leader we have CEO Velocity and View from the Crow’s Nest. Savvy CFOs get expert advice fromCFO Currency, while Lending Solutions, Marketing Matters, Technologically Speaking, Compliance Update, and Branch BUSINESS are each authored by industry experts to share their expertise and sharpen the skills of those executives who will benefit the most.
And, while we’ve been helping the management teams, we’ve also put our money where our mouth is with Children’s Miracle Network by donating pro bono advertisements in more than 100 issues of CU Business since 2005. While I try not to brag, if you were to put a dollar figure to the total, it would hover around a quarter million dollars because kids are more important than anybody! Joe Dearborn, Senior Director of CUs4Kids said: “It’s great to know that we can count on the generous folks at CU BUSINESS to help bring the finest healthcare to our CMN Hospitals throughout the U.S.”
