Seven Principles Blog
Blog Home All Blogs
In 1844, a small group of weavers from Rochdale, England created the blueprint for how their newly-formed cooperative would operate and serve the local community. These values, known as the Seven Cooperative Principles, serve as the operating guidebook for credit unions and cooperatives throughout the world. This blog was created to honor that legacy and to showcase the everyday efforts of credit unions in the Carolinas that embody the cooperative mission and purpose.

September 14 is Miracle Jeans Day

On Wednesday, September 14, hundreds of credit unions nationwide will join together to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by celebrating Miracle Jeans Day. It’s easy—encourage your employees to donate $5 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to trade their traditional business attire for jeans for the day. In other words, they get to dress down to show their care for kids!

 

Donations in Action

 

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat millions of children across North America. This treatment is given regardless of the patient’s condition or ability to pay.

 

Meet Sophia. She was born with her heart on the opposite side, upside down, and backwards. She has needed four open-heart surgeries and three stomach surgeries to beat the very slim odds the doctors gave her at birth.

 

CMN Hospitals continue to provide Sophia with physical and occupational therapy. Even though she will always be on medication, her joy for life allows passion for art, playing softball, and stealing the show as a Lost Boy in her school’s play.

 

Sign up for Miracle Jeans Day, and support kids like Sophia, Kali, and Starla.

Carrie Young, the executive assistant for SAFE Federal Credit Union, was named the CUaware Protégé for the Columbia Chapter. Young will now compete in the CUaware Protégé Finals Competition October 6.

Gregory Young selected CUaware Protégé for Piedmont Chapter

Updated: Tuesday, August 23, 2016

The Piedmont Chapter announced that Gregory Young, a project coordinator at Carolinas Telco FCU, has been named the CUaware Protégé. Young will compete in the CUaware Protégé Finals Competition in October.

The chapter held its CUaware Protégé event Thursday evening, August 18. More than 20 credit union representatives attended and heard Young's five minute verbal presentation. 


Young, who is 30, views millennials as a natural fit for credit unions - as both employees and as member-owners. "We are not afraid to question outdated business practices, and living and working through the recent economic recession has also taught us the value of financial thrift," Young says. "Ultimately, what we can do is help create and support an adaptive credit union industry influenced by millennials, for millennials and beyond."     

The Bassett, Virginia native has earned credits in economics from Christopher Newport College. He enjoys repairing computers in his spare time, as well as gardening and kayaking.  

CUaware Protégé Chapter Competitions are now complete. The CUaware Protégé Finals Competition will be held during the MACCU 2016 Fall Conference in Asheville in October.
