Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is a national association that advocates on behalf of credit unions and works to protect their interests. CUNA Councils, which presents the annual Diamond Awards, is a professional development organization comprised of more than 6,900 individuals across the United States. It is run by more than 300 credit union leader volunteers and focuses on seven areas: finance, HR, marketing & sales, lending, operations, technology, and CEOs.

“PSECU’s vision is that our members will recognize us as their trusted financial partner. Marketing is key to achieving that goal because if a member or potential member does not know about our offerings, they can’t benefit from them. Good marketing practices help ensure that our messages are shared clearly and effectively with those who need to hear them,” explained Greg Smith, President of PSECU. “I couldn’t be prouder of our Marketing Department’s award-winning projects.”


Opened in 1934, PSECU was founded by 22 ordinary people who pooled $90 and made an extraordinary commitment to each other: To create a financial institution where collective resources benefit all members. Today, PSECU continues that legacy as Pennsylvania’s digital-first credit union, with $8.5 billion in assets, an economic impact of over $700 million, more than 580,000 members, and a convenient anytime, anywhere banking model.
