1st Financial Federal Credit Union wins industry marketing award

WENTZVILLE, MO (May 1, 2018) — 1st Financial Federal 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 & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,300 credit union marketing and business development professionals.

1st Financial Federal Credit Union won the Direct Mail category for its New Member Welcome campaign. The New Member campaign includes a letter with all of the pertinent information that the member needs to know about their new account as well as a New Member Guide to help them take advantage of everything that a credit union membership has to offer. New members also receive an email with a video from the credit union CEO and a phone call from a local credit union branch manager to answer any questions that they might have.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized for our New Member Welcome campaign by CUNA,” said Laura Woods, VP of Marketing and Community Presence. “We understand how important first impressions are and that the first 90 days at the credit union are the most critical in the member’s journey and we work hard to educate and inform our new members.”
