Cooperative marketing. Have you checked out “I am a credit union” at Mitchell, Stankovic and Associates? It’s
cooperative social marketing at its best.
As we discussed, I want to thank you for all that you did for us during the merger. Without your persistent persistence, we would not have accomplished what we have and would certainly have stalled along the way possibly avoiding the truly important things to focus on. You kept us moving forward no matter what the obstacle or issue so that we could arrive where we are today. You kept us focused on the difficult issues and would not allow us to avoid the tough decisions. Your input, guidance and astute leadership along with the appropriate amount of positive irritation at the right time made what many thought impossible—very achievable.
Thanks for everything… can't wait to see what we created can do in the future.
William J. Thiess, Lake Trust Credit Union

Roxy Ostrem, Chair of Ventura County Credit Union
Together we made a difference! On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN), we thank you for your help at the 25th Annual Black & White Party. Because of you, we are able to say that we had the most successful Black & White Party to date. Your commitment was incredibly helpful and allowed us to exceed our goals. More than 3,000 guests filled the venue for an evening of delicious tastings, chilling libations and entertainment that can only be found on the Las Vegas Strip. Over $135,000 was raised to support our organization.
Each year AFAN continues to advance our mission of helping over 4,000 people living in Southern Nevada with HIV/AIDS. All of the proceeds from the Black & White Party support AFAN’s vitally important programs including Prevention Education, Emergency Financial Assistance, Nutritional Counseling, Housing, and Transportation. All of our programs are structured to provide support and advocacy for the individuals and families we serve, while working to eliminate the fear, prejudice and stigma associated with the disease. Your generosity and compassion has an impact on our clients and our agency, which goes well beyond any monetary value.
Caring people, like you, have enabled AFAN to fight HIV/AIDS in our community for 27 years. Only with your involvement and support, can we truly continue to make a difference.
Thank you for making a difference!
Sue... Our discussions never fail to exceed expectations, in both content and dialogue and with or without an agenda. You are motivational which is likely a large contributor to your ongoing success.

Brandi Stankovic, joined by Susan Mitchell and Joseph Schroeder, led a group discussion about the future of membership growth.
The folks who squeezed themselves into the Grassroots Membership Growth workshop heard about a new program at Ventura County Credit Union that has employees going into farm fields with iPhones to sign up and serve agricultural workers who, traditionally, don’t have bank accounts.
Hi Sue and Mike,
I just got back from visiting the orphanage in Kenya and while there, I had a chance to see the kids playing with the toys that were given to them for Christmas thanks to your generous donation. Each child was given a small toy and they make a point to take very good care of them. Each child knows which toy is theirs but they still share them with others. They have so much fun with them!
Nicole Bice, World Council of Credit Unions
Good morning Sue!
Last night Affinity was recognized as a NJ Best Places to Work (we have been for the past few years) and I'm taking the opportunity to reach out to a few of our key business partners to say thank you for your contribution to that recognition. You, in particular, have had a significant impact on our organization and I wanted you to be aware of how that is being recognized by our staff and others. Thanks.
