The Missouri Credit Union Association needs your help!
Missouri lost a Congressional district in 2012, and all state and federal legislative districts changed. To have the most impact, MCUA needs every credit union to participate in Project Zip Code to show where credit unions members live. Lawmakers are less likely to pass legislation that negatively affects credit unions when they realize the strength and size of credit union membership in Missouri, especially in their legislative district.
What is Project Zip Code?
Project Zip Code is a program that tabulates the zip codes of your members and identifies what federal and state legislative districts they live in. With Project Zip Code, credit unions can show Missouri's elected officials how many credit union members are in their district. Project Zip Code also provides other advantages:
Your membership potential: Project Zip Code can help credit unions with marketing and expansion. Every credit union can review their membership, determine where members are moving, and plan ahead for these changes - whether it's building a new branch or focusing marketing efforts.
Privacy protection: Project Zip Code maintains the security and privacy of member data. No names or phone numbers - just the zip codes. While keeping your members valuable information private, this is a safe and secure way to demonstrate the strength and number of our credit union members.
What can your credit union do?
Participate in Project Zip Code twice a year – in the spring and in the fall (typically April and October). It’s important to re-run the program every year to reflect membership changes.
PZC 12.0 is available online. Instead of providing you with a CD, use this link to download PZC 12.0: www.pzconline.com/install. The website also includes a user manual and frequently asked questions.
If you have run PZC before, you will need your credit unions’ password. MCUA sends current passwords to each credit union during Project Zip Code months. To have the current password e-mailed to you, visit www.pzconline.com/pzczip/PZCfogotpassword.asp.
