NEW YORK-Credit union employees and volunteers were urged last week by CUNA Chairman Pat Wesenberg to get on Facebook and Twitter and other social media outlets to sell the story of credit unions and the latest campaign to preserve the credit union tax exemption.

Wesenberg, the president of Wisconsin's Central City CU, told 1, attendees at CUNA's America's CU Conference the emerging social media outlets can be used to reach millions of potential new credit union adherents and to mobilize vast audiences-just like CUNA did in 1990 in its "Operation Grassroots" and in 1996 with the "Credit Union Campaign for Consumer Choice."
