Credit unions and chapters throughout NC celebrated International Credit Union Day with a variety of events statewide this week. Included among these celebrations was an all-star panel put together by the CU Aware networking group in Raleigh, which was live-streamed on the Internet Thursday evening (view a video archive of the panel discussion by clicking here).
Some 75 people attended the event at the Quorum Center, which featured panelists Larry Blanchard (CUNA Mutual Group), Lois Kitsch (National CU Foundation), Maurice Smith (Local Government FCU) and Matt Davis (Filene Research Institute). Coastal FCU coordinated the live-stream of the panel event. The all-star panel answered questions from the audience in the Quorum Center, as well as questions from Twitter users nationwide.
The event was sponsored by the NC Credit Union League and Local Government FCU.
