Are you making the switch?
Tomorrow (November 5) is Bank Transfer Day – when more than 50,000 people have vowed to move their accounts from big banks to local credit unions or community banks. Verity has geared up for the day with extra staffing and “Join the CU Revolution” T-shirts.
Are you planning to move your accounts on Bank Transfer Day? Have you moved already? If you want to hear some reasons we think Verity is a great option for your banking needs, go to our page on Bank Transfer Day.
My name is Melina Young and I am the director of marketing at Verity Credit Union. I love everything to do with marketing, advertising, public relations and social media – especially all the research that goes into making a product or service really work for our members and making sure the right people hear about it. In addition to my time spent marketing, I have a blog and write about celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with in 2010. Basically, I can’t eat any of those foods we all love that are made with wheat, barley or rye.
I have also recently started running and completed my first 5k in 2011. Some people may not know that I used to do a lot of acting, dancing and singing in my life. I was in a Nike commercial with Gary Payton in junior high (if anyone ever finds the footage please send it my way!) and I used to compete as an opera singer in high school. I almost majored in musical theater in college, but I’m very glad with my decision to study marketing!
