Chad & Christopher gear up for their Illinois Credit Union League Annual Convention appearance:
Join us April 26-28, 2012 in Schaumburg! For more info on the Illinois Credit Union League Annual Convention, visit http://www.iculeague.org/2012AC.htm.
Hope to see you there!
Then you need to attend the premiere national event for your area – the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 7-10, 2012.
It’s a great event filled with inspiring, informative, and thought-provoking focused sessions. Plus where else can you network with hundreds of your fellow marketing and business development professionals?
Oh, and the Disclosures will be there too! We’ll be performing our new education session “Add More Cowbell to Your Credit Union Messaging” on Thursday at the conference. It’s a repeating breakout session so you have two chances to come see us in the morning.
Hope to see you in The Big Easy!
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with you on the “Top Five Reasons to Hire The Disclosures for your Next CU Event” and since then we’ve been pretty busy. Recently, The Disclosures have:
- Created a song and music video that went viral for Bank Transfer Day.
- Recorded a song and produced a collaborative music video with more than 40 CUs around the nation for International CU Day.
- Released a video for our song “98 Problems (but a Bank Ain’t One)” for CUs to use in their web communications.
- Played at more than a few credit union chapter meetings, industry events, CU staff trainings and even the first Co-op fair in Madison, Wis.
Why are we telling you this? Because based around our experiences, we’ve created a new session that teaches credit unions how to tap into their creative veins and make fun, unique and engaging content through social media channels!
The session, called “Add More Cowbell to Your Credit Union Messaging”, walks participants through the creative process of morphing CU communications into fun, interactive messages that work well over social media channels and can strengthen relationships between members and employees. Specifically, we’ll discusses topics such as:
- Introduction and application of creativity into your credit union’s identity.
- How to “humanize” your messaging while remaining accurate and informative.
- The attraction of credit union philosophy and values and why they should be a part of credit union communications & employee training.
- Creating cost-effective, original social media content and how to properly share it.
- Utilizing young staff in member outreach and how it can benefit your credit union.
And in case you’re wondering, we’ll still have our guitars handy to liven up the audience with some credit union inspired music!
So as you plan your credit union-related meetings next year and are looking for unique content, please keep The Disclosures in mind. Whether it’s our brand new ed session, our popular CU history and philosophy ed session entitled “Credit Unions in the Key of Awesome“, an emcee performance or even if you just need some acoustic music to liven up your evening reception, we’ll be ready to rock.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
