Young & Free Forever: Choose a Credit Union

For the past four years, we've gathered all of our Young & Free clients together for something we call the Young & Free Marketer Meet-up. This is held the day before the annual CU Water Cooler Symposium. As part of the Marketer Meet-up, we also hold the Young & Free Spokester Summit where our active Spokesters get together, connect, learn from one another and create a collaborative video.

This year's video was filmed in Austin, Texas by Matt Hawkins and is entitled, "Young & Free Forever." It features an original song written and performed by Kenny DeShields from Vantage Credit Union in St. Louis. Rachel Parrent and DeAnna Anglin also helped with the lyrics and additional musicians included Greg Hand and Charlie Brown.

We're releasing this on International Credit Union Day to help celebrate this year's theme: "Local Service. Global Good.," to emphasizes credit unions' positive impact in their communities and around the world.

Hope you enjoy it!
