Tech Council seeks best practices awards applicants
MADISON, Wis. (5/8/09)--Nominations are being sought for the CUNA Technology Council’s Best Practices awards. No fees are required for entry, and entries are due by June 12. The awards recognize outstanding approaches to technology challenges with potential for universal application across the credit union movement. Judges will choose award winners from Credit Union National Association (CUNA)-affiliated credit unions, without regard to asset size. The awards will be based on strategy, process, application and results in several categories:
* Technology Infrastructure--looks at the technical and procedural environment for safely accessing infrastructure, how the system monitors this access, and its current and future storage-management capabilities; * Information Security/Privacy--examines the technical and procedural environment to minimize the possibility of internal and external unauthorized access to member information; * Member Service/Convenience--emphasizes the benefits to members and employees, and covers the technical environment and system integration technologies that allow members to open accounts or receive information about existing accounts across all delivery channels; * Sales Management/Marketing Automation--recognizes the use of innovative automated systems to manage member information, create personalized product offers, plan and track sales leads, measure return on investment, and so forth; * Miscellaneous--for any technology success story that does not fit the other categories.
Award winners will be recognized at the 14th annual CUNA Technology Council Summit, Aug. 5-8 in San Francisco. For more information, use the link.
