PURCHASE, N.Y., April 16, 2021 – Quorum Federal Credit Union has won a Diamond Award in Content Marketing for its Learning Hub during Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council’s week-long virtual awards show to honor excellence in credit union marketing and business development.
In total 1,295 entries were submitted from financials across the country. Six credit unions won Best of Show Awards, 86 won Category’s Best Awards and 264 won Diamond Awards.
“We’re honored to have been recognized by CUNA for our Learning Hub,” said Carlene Armetta, Chief Marketing Officer at Quorum. “Because Quorum operates as a digital-only Credit Union, we knew it was important to establish a “digital branch” where members could visit and gather information and find resources and helpful tips in a variety of financial categories. Our Learning Hub functions as the digital branch’s lobby: we’ve equipped it with unbiased, expert information on common experiences, from “How much do I need for a down payment on my first home?” to “Is getting pre-approved for a mortgage worth it?” to “How do I dispute or pay for a large medical bill?” to tips for filling out the FAFSA. And new stories are added at least weekly.
“It was important for us to make sure our Learning Hub’s mission was to inform, not to sell,” Armetta continued. “Our articles are timely, relevant to today’s news, unbiased, and to the point. You hear in the news about mistrust for financials, and what better way for Quorum to build trust amongst our community and add value for our members by serving up both perspectives to an issue, arming our members with all of the facts, so a financial choice is well-informed.”
