CU Digest Examines the Rules
When do credit unions need to use the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) official "advertising statement" or display the agency's official sign?

“Advertisement,” as used in Part 740, means “a commercial message, in any medium, that is designed to attract public attention or patronage to a product or business.”
