Coastal Credit Union was recently honored with two Diamond Awards, which recognize outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.
The awards were presented by the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,300 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 36 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.
Coastal won in the Membership Marketing category for Join Days, which was a promotion run throughout the year that rewarded existing members for bringing in their family and friends to become new members. The credit union also won in the Ongoing Events category for Coastal Family Day. The second annual event drew more than 3,700 members and guests.
“The hard work displayed by these credit unions always leaves us feeling inspired and passionate about what we do,” said Amy McGraw, Chair of the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council’s Diamond Awards Committee and VP Marketing, Tropical Financial CU. “Receiving this award further highlights the dedication they have for our movement and their members.”
Award winners were recognized at the council’s 26th annual conference held March 20-23 in Las Vegas. For more information on the Diamond Awards or to view the entire list of winners, go to http://www.cunacouncils.org/events-recognition/mbd-awards.
