CU Snapshots 

Indepth is always on the lookout for great photos for the CU Snapshots page! Do you have photos from credit union, chapter, community service or other events? We would like to share those with the Illinois credit union community, so please send them to Will Wille.

Bloomington Chapter serves community as bell ringers




Credit unions from the Bloomington Chapter of Credit Unions were out in the community during the holidays volunteering as bell ringers for the Salvation Army.  The group covered two separate locations for several hours in December.  

NuMark awards presented





As the recipient of two Desjardins Financial Education awards and a Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award, NuMark Credit Union was presented with plaques at the December meeting of the Will County Chapter of Credit Unions. Kari Endres, NuMark's Marketing Director (at right), and Linda Krakora, Training Manager, were on hand to accept the awards from Tom Kane, ICUL EVP, Chief Administrative Officer.

CRS roundtables help collectors connect, compete





Collectors roundtable events, hosted for the past dozen years by Creditors Resource Services (CRS), a division of the Illinois Credit Union League Service Corporation, continue to be critical events for the sharing of information and networking. 
This year’s roundtables, both held at ICUL’s Naperville offices, saw attendance by more than 90 individuals representing 77 credit unions, as well as 75 others who participated in one of three roundtables held in New Orleans. Facilitated by Sheila O'Leary, CRS Manager, the Naperville event also included an "Ask OGC" segment with ICUL Compliance Attorney, Brad Bergmooser.

League concludes another charitable year of giving





ICUL staff "gift wrapped" its community service and giving for the year by providing toys for the Walter and Connie Payton Foundation (WCPF).  The toy drive was one of several charitable actions carried out by ICUL in 2012.  See the "Important News" section in this issue for the full story.
