Wednesday, August 19, 2015 6:40 AM

7 Cooperative Principles Video

Yesterday the National Credit Union Foundation and Corporate One FCU release a short video about the cooperative principles for credit unions.  This video helps credit unions show how they work together to benefit all members.  Credit unions are encouraged to share the video with their members, staff and community. 

The animated video discusses the benefits of credit unions and talks about the 7 cooperative principles credit unions are founded on.

The video is available for download and on YouTube below.

“Part of the credit union difference is the fact that they are cooperatives,” said Gigi Hyland, Foundation Executive Director. “We need to celebrate that and shout it from the rooftops! Therefore, we hope credit unions share this video far and wide to help people better understand our cooperative advantage.”

“Corporate One is by definition exactly what the seven cooperatives principles are all about,” said Lee Butke, President and CEO of Corporate One Federal Credit Union in Columbus, Ohio. “We were built by our member credit unions working together for a common goal, making it easier for people to achieve financial success. We’re proud to team up with the Foundation to make this video available to help credit unions spread the word about the unique and powerful principles that are the foundation of the credit union movement.”
