The 2012 Marketing Association for Credit Unions (MACU) Annual Conference was held last week at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls, Ontario. At the conference Community First Credit Union was honoured with three Achievement in Marketing Excellence Awards, or AIMEs as they are better known as.
MACU's most exciting and celebrated event is the annual AIME Awards competition. Attracting entries from credit unions across Canada, the AIMEs recognize achievements in credit union marketing, advertising and communications. The joint partnership and collaboration between Lucidia and Community First garnered wins in the following three categories:
￼Newsletters - AIM award for Community First’s youmatter member newsletter
Posters and Point-of-Purchase - AIME award for the “Let’s Be Clear” deposit campaign
Website - AIME award for Community First’s “YOU Matter” financial literacy microsite (youmatter.ca)
Community First and Lucida have enjoyed a considerable amount of success at the AIME awards, being recognized first in 2005. Including this year’s three awards, the credit union and agency have amassed a total of 12 AIM and AIME awards.
