TAMPA, FL (April 20, 2017)CSCU, one of the country’s leading CUSO’s with 2000 members, presented its Exceptional Marketing Ideas (EMI) Awards to 12 CUs at its recently held annual conference. The 12 CUs were chosen from a pool of 64 submissions vying for the coveted awards that recognize excellence in the following categories: Overall Credit Campaign; Overall Debit Campaign; Portfolio Consulting Services (PCS) and Community Outreach. A small (under $250M in assets), medium ($250-$499M in assets) and large ($500M+ in assets) credit union was awarded in each category.

“These Awards give us a chance to recognize the outstanding efforts made by our member credit unions to strategically manage credit and debit card programs successfully,” said CSCU President, Bob Hackney at the event held in Orlando. “We also recognize some very special credit unions through our Community Outreach scholarships each year to help credit unions help their communities. This is our way of reaching beyond our own local community and into the communities of our members,” Hackney added.

In the Overall Credit Campaign category NET Credit Union, American 1 Credit Union and Chartway FCU emerged as winners. While, in the Overall Debit Campaign, Streator Onized Credit Union, Homeland Credit Union and Evansville FCU were awarded.

The winners of the PCS category were selected from CUs who have worked with CSCU’s PCS team over the past year and have achieved excellence as a result of these collaborations. The winners were ProMedica FCU, Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union and CoastHills Credit Union. The Community Outreach winners were Western New York FCU, Erie FCU and Verity Credit Union. Each awardee in this category received a $1,500 scholarship for future community projects.
