Defense Council Sings: If We Can Make It There...
It may have been short-lived, but the 10-minute mega-screen plug for defense credit unions in Times Square at NASDAQ’s opening lived up to all the expectations.
That was the assessment of the leadership of the Defense Credit Union Council, which recently managed to broadcast a positive CU message “to millions around the world” who saw the ceremony–with DCUC executives delivering the message–beamed on TV sets worldwide and on New York streets from a NASDAQ studio.
Echoing Padak as a participant in the DCUC assemblage before NASDAQ cameras was Gordon Simmons, president/CEO of the $1.8 billion Service CU, Portsmouth, N.H. who said “it was truly exhilarating and a high honor for credit unions” to get this kind of public visibility.
“Look, it is terrific where we could get that kind of exposure in a place where 9 million can learn something about credit unions and what they do for our soldiers and their families here and overseas,” said Simmons.
