Gallman Named 2019 New Orleans CityBusiness 'Money Maker'
LCUL is proud to announce that Bob Gallman, President/CEO, joined the 2019 class of New Orleans CityBusiness Money Makers honorees.
Each year, New Orleans CityBusiness selects individuals to be recognized for achievements in their respective industries as well as their community impact. Honoree's accomplishments have not only set the pace for their organization, but the region as a whole.

"We are excited to see Bob recognized as a Money Makers honoree this year," said Sidney Parfait, LCUL Board Chairman. "Bob is an incredible asset to the credit union community in Louisiana and we are fortunate to have him leading the state trade association, ensuring the movement continues to thrive throughout the state."
Gallman was honored at a luncheon on Thursday October 17 at The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans with a featured interview published in the October 26 issue of CityBusiness.
Are You Helping Your Members Grow Their Savings AND Saving Money?
Almost half of Louisiana residents do not have enough money in their savings to cover if they have an emergency. We see this every day in our credit unions, that savings is not a top priority for our members. Alternatively, people are continuing to spend money on lottery tickets with the dream of winning big.

What if you could bring a product to your credit union that allows a member to save while earning a chance to win money? The Lucky Lagniappe Savings account is that product. As members deposit $20 into their Lucy Lagniappe account, they earn one entry into the monthly, quarterly, and annual prize drawings. Your member could be the lucky winner of the $5,000 annual prize! From now until November 30 Louisiana credit unions have the opportunity to enroll to offer this product to their members.

For information on the program visit the League's website or contact Angela Melle.
