"Social media has been a growing area of focus for the association, as I believe it has for all organizations," said William J. Mellin, CUANY president/CEO. "We've watched its progression and have been evaluating how we can use social media to be of better service to our credit unions, built a real sense of community and offer an engaging social media destination for New York credit unions."
The page, at www.facebook.com/CUANY.org
, includes association updates, industry news, exclusive tools and resources, photos and more. It offers a fresh look at the association's four core areas of service: governmental affairs, regulatory compliance, education and training, and outreach. It also highlights CUANY's member relations team, includes a new tab housing its blog, and has tabs so visitors can follow tweets from Mellin and the association's senior vice president, general counsel and lobbyist, Michael Lanotte.
The association will conduct a drawing to win one of 50 custom-designed T-shirts as part of the promotion. Deadline for the drawing is Feb. 29.
