Young & Free Maine Spokester Announced

Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union and the rest of Maine’s Credit Unions would like to announce that the first Young & Free Maine spokester is Seth Poplaski. A surprise announcement party took place in Bangor where he celebrated with nearly 50 of his friends and family and another 50 credit union representatives. Seth accepted the position and will begin serving his 1 year contract on July 1, 2011.

Seth received a degree in journalism from the University of Maine in 2009. As a longtime member of a credit union, his outgoing personality prompted friends, family and credit union employees to encourage him to apply. Although the voting was very close, Seth proved his ability to communicate with Maine’s 25 and under crowd by featuring his slack lining technique in a video, reaching out to local media and writing several effective blog posts.

Seth is thrilled to be chosen for the role as the Young & Free Maine spokester. Please follow his progress on www.youngfreemaine.com where he will post videos and blogs to educate Maine’s young adults on the benefits of credit unions and how to manage their money!
