Sooper Credit Union Wins Diamond Award

Arvada, CO – Sooper Credit Union in Arvada, Colorado was recently honored with a Diamond Award, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.

The award was presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,200 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 30 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.

Sooper won in the outdoor promotion category for its entry, entitled “Jeffco is Sooper.” The entry consisted of a series of bus stop ads placed within 2-3 miles of the credit union’s new Lakewood location. The ads were designed and strategically placed to attract new members who could now qualify for membership through Sooper’s expanded field of membership in Jefferson County, Colorado.

“The Diamond Awards competition represents the pinnacle of credit union marketing and business development,” said Andy Reed, Chair of the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council, and President and CEO, Texas People FCU. “Honoring credit unions in 30 categories, ranging from brand awareness to website, social media to mobile marketing, credit unions and individuals that receive these awards represent the very best of the best in their profession.”

Award winners were recognized at the council’s 23rd annual conference held March 20th -23rd in Anaheim, California. For more information on the Diamond Awards or to view the entire list of winners, go to www.cunacouncils.org/awards.
