We here at the Center have gone on record as stating that the vast majority of Local Credit Unions and Minnesota-based regional banks were NOT part of the causes of our current foreclosure crisis in Minnesota... but we are EXTREMELY pleased to have these local contacts be a part of the solution!
Here's a brief snippet of the press release:
“Since credit unions are not-for-profit and have a true concern for their members’ financial well being, this relationship with the Home Ownership Center can enhance credit unions’ existing efforts and can be a win-win for all parties involved,” said Mark D. Cummins, MnCUN President & CEO. “Oftentimes consumers at risk of foreclosure are scared or embarrassed of their situation. By publicizing this counseling network to their members, credit unions can position themselves – yet again – as a go-to resource for their members.”The entire press-release is available here.
This relationship goes beyond just a simple referral. The MN Credit Union Network is working to prepare newsletter inserts for member Credit Unions to use in their newsletters and websites, and will make marketing materials, including print and web-ready pieces, available to those who are interested.
In addition... a member of the Communications department from the MNCUN will be joining the Minnesota Home Ownership Center's Board-Level Marketing Committee to assist us in our outreach efforts to Minnesotans!
The Center is excited about this new relationship!
