TopLine Financial Credit Union Receives Diamond Award for Outstanding Marketing Achievements

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Sept. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TopLine Financial Credit Union was honored with a Diamond Award, which recognizes outstanding marketing and business development achievements in the credit union industry.

The award was presented by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council, a national network comprised of over 1,300 credit union marketing and business development professionals. Awards are given in 35 categories ranging from advertising and community events to financial education, social media and beyond.

TopLine won the Direct Mail series category for its “Staycation” themed Home Equity Line of Credit campaign. TopLine’s HELOC Campaign was designed to promote their HELOC product to members. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of people had to cancel vacations and were staying home to keep themselves and families safe, this created the perfect opportunity for a “Staycation” campaign theme. The campaign included a direct mail piece, lobby posters and was included in TopLine’s monthly newsletter. TopLine’s winning entry also took home “Category’s Best” honors.

“With 1,195 entries in 35 categories, this year’s competition for the prestigious Diamond Awards has been like no other. Only the very best of the best entries were selected for a Diamond Award and from those, only a few were named Category’s Best,” said Marella Nardotti, Chair of the CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council’s Diamond Awards Committee and VP Marketing at NextMark Credit Union.
