At the Cornerstone Growth and Engagement Conference held earlier this week, the Marketing and Business Development Council honored the 2019 Pinnacle Award winners, recognizing credit unions and their staff for their special skills, innovation, time, and resources in more than 20 categories from advertising campaigns to social media and everything in-between. The award winners were selected by a diverse panel of judges based on the achievements of the campaigns.
