CU System
Community platform new feature of Carolinas website
COLUMBIA, S.C., and RALEIGH, N.C. (1/15/14)--The Carolinas Credit Union League's newly designed website includes a community section that fosters networking and collaboration among league members.
 
The community section allows members to join online groups within three group types: chapters, asset size, and expertise. Once a user joins a group, he or she can network with its other members, start and join forum discussions, post group-related photos, keep up with group events, and learn from each other.
 
"We heard clearly that credit unions want their league to be a unifying influence and a champion of cooperation, and the community section will empower them to connect and collaborate," said CCUL Vice President of Public Relations and Communications Brandon Pugh.
 
The newly designed website completes a four-month process of consolidating the North Carolina and South Carolina leagues' sites.
 
Built on the same membership management platform as the former South Carolina Credit Union League's website--carolinasleague.org--optimizes navigation with added tabs for advocacy, compliance, professional development and community. The leagues' web team was led by Pugh and included CCUL staff, with design support from Third Degree Advertising.
 
The site includes the ability for league-member credit unions, business partners, and CCUL staff to create individual profiles within the site. Once logged in, users have access to exclusive site features including CU directory search, community groups and a job posting form.
 
Details are added to the site daily, and companion sub-sites include the grassroots action platform Vocus, League InfoSight for compliance resources, and the Credit Union Webinar Network through Financial Education and Development (FED) to round out professional development offerings.
