  • The problem identification is correct, the solution is going to fall short of the goal. Non-members are the ones who need to be educated.

  • Comic relief: All credit unions are not the same; just like all banks are not the same. Consumers may not be as stupid as the author believes; or willing to believe the generalizations and untruths. Stockholder owned institutions frequently deliver better value to consumers than cooperatives, perhaps in part because of the mythical beliefs (or CUNA's bright lights) of some of their managers.

  • This is all well and good, but I was expecting something with a little more "pop" than just training employees about the value of credit union membership. How do we get the word out to the general public? Do we pool advertising dollars? How do we compete for market share with the big banks? What national or regional organizations champion the cause of CU's to the general public?

  • It puts the issue in perspective. Dealing with the issue before we have to, will allow us more flexability.
