20 Organizations Enroll In Minnesotas Vendor Involvement Program
ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Credit Union Network welcomed 20 participants into its 2011 Vendor Involvement Program.
The Vendor Involvement Program, or V.I.P., was created in 2005 to provide committed service organizations with an opportunity to work with MnCUN and increase visibility among Minnesota credit unions, the trade group said. Designed to optimize business relationships with Minnesota credit unions, this advertising program offers Annual Meeting packages, exposure, and exclusive opportunities to participate in new MnCUN initiatives.
Of the 20 total organizations, four are new and 16 have renewed their participation for 2011. New vendors are: AmeriCU, CRW Insurance, John M. Floyd & Associates and StarWest Chevrolet Honda Sports.
Repeat participants include: CUNA Mutual Group, CFC Technology, Advantage Network, CO-OP Financial Services, Consumer Loan Services, First Class Mortgage, Fidelity National Information Services, ICUL Card Services, LarsonAllen LLP, LockNet IT Solutions, Metro License Services, Minnesota Item Processing Corporation, MnCUSC Shared Branching, Repossessors, Inc., Wipfli LLP and World Wide Audio Media.
“The Vendor Involvement Program gives credit union service providers an easy way to get their message in front of Minnesota credit unions,” said Mark D. Cummins, MnCUN President & CEO. “In a time when so many companies are looking to make the most out of their advertising dollars, this packaged program provides opportunities throughout the year to speak directly to their target audience.”
Participants in MnCUN’s Vendor Involvement Program must offer professional service, quality product lines and competitive pricing. The trade group said the companies must “appreciate the qualities that make credit unions unique and understand the importance of providing the best service possible to Minnesota’s credit union members.”
