Mont. league launches blog for board members
HELENA, Mont. (3/18/14)--Montana Credit Union League leaders have launched a weekly blog called "A Direct Line," a resource they hope will inform and engage Montana credit union board members on issues facing the industry.

"Your role as a director means you need to have a pulse on the industry and it is our job to help you find resources and discussions on hot topics without you spending a lot of unnecessary time," said Donya Parrish, MCUN vice president of dues supported services, in the blog's first post.

Board members can expect a "timely topic" written by Parrish or Tabitha Garvin, vice president of fee-based services, every Wednesday. The topic of the week also will be highlighted in the state association's President's Report .

Subjects the league plans to cover in the blog in the near future include enterprise risk management and the risk-based capital proposal. Parrish also says that guest columns or suggestions for blog topics are always welcome.

The first blog post covered credit union annual meetings, which are commonly held in the spring.
