Newspapers, radio, television and social media are valuable tools for providing information about credit unions to consumers. It can sometimes be difficult to get the attention of the media. Developing good relationships with reporters and editors can help build opportunities for positive news coverage.
LSCU works consistently to cultivate strong relationships with media in Alabama, Florida and Georgia – as well as national outlets and trade publications – to place credit unions in the spotlight as consumer-friendly financial institutions that are also experts in the financial space.
We encourage credit unions to turn to LSCU’s communications team if they’re in need of media assistance, including talking points on a specific topics or general tips for speaking with the media. The LSCU communications staff is always available to assist member credit unions with inquiries from and outreach to the media. If you have questions, need pointers on how to deal with a media request, or would like for us to handle the media request (if appropriate), contact any of the LSCU communications staff.
For questions and tips concerning the media, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The LSCU communications staff can assist you with questions and commentary on the credit union industry. If you’re looking for statistics or comments on legislative and regulatory issues, or need to get in touch with a credit union leader in one of our tri-states, please contact us.
