Think NCUA’s Uncle Sam Should Be Replaced? Vote!

For the first two weeks in November, Callahan & Associates ran a contest looking for better alternatives to NCUA’s Uncle Sam ad. We posted this contest not to create a firestorm of complaints about NCUA, but to generate NEW, better ideas for how we--as an industry--should be communicating our value.

 
 

For the first two weeks in November, Callahan & Associates ran a contest looking for better alternatives to NCUA’s Uncle Sam ad. We posted this contest not to create a firestorm of complaints about NCUA, but to generate NEW, better ideas for how we--as an industry--should be communicating our value.

The contest attracted two distinct responses: a variety of new ads were submitted, designed to replace the Uncle Sam ad, as well as emails from credit union marketing executives looking to share what their own institution was communicating to the market. Now it’s your turn!

Below are the entries for the NCUA Ad Contest and your opportunity to chose a favorite. Once you’re done voting, click here to vote on your favorite credit union ad.

  • The survey software does not allow someone to vote for more than one ad. It clearly states at the top of the screen that your vote does not count if you've voted once already.

  • FYI - The voting can be rigged. You can vote for the same ad over and over. It looks like it's already happening.

  • Don't like the "don't pay taxes" part - gives ammo to the banks - we do pay taxes - just not on our income........

  • When I voted, it shut down my coworkers who voted from the same network, and it told them they had already voted. So I don't see how you could vote more than once on the same computer, right now you can't even vote twice from the same network.
