Diamond awards shine on one facet of Midcoast FCU  

Midcoast Federal Credit Union was recently honored with Diamond Awards in two categories that recognize outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.

The award was presented by the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprises more than 1,300 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in each of 36 categories ranging from advertising to community events and beyond.

Midcoast Federal Credit Union won Categories “Best in Logo Design” and “Multifaceted Campaign” for its PERKS 321 logo and program materials. Both entries represented the Credit Union’s new credit card 321 Local Rewards program.

Award winners were recognized at the council’s 26th annual conference held March 20-23 in Las Vegas. 

“The hard work displayed by these credit unions always leaves us feeling inspired and passionate about what we do,” said Amy McGraw, chairwoman of the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council’s Diamond Awards Committee. “Receiving this award further highlights the dedication they have for our movement and their members.”
