MADISON, Wis. (1/5/12)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has released a new case study exclusively available on the CUNA Volunteer Network.
The case study examines the use of Passageways online board portals by three credit unions worldwide. Passageways is an exclusive CUNA Strategic Services provider.
The case study demonstrates how online portals are revolutionizing the way credit unions communicate with their boards. Highlighting Michigan Schools and Government CU, Clinton Township, Mich.; Barbados Public Workers/Co-operative CU Limited, St. Michael, Barbados; and Johns Hopkins FCU, Baltimore, the case study illustrates how the board portals have benefitted each credit union and improved board relations.
Using board portals, credit union directors and volunteers secure online access to board packets and other materials quickly and panper-free. Portals also provide board members a forum for discussions, polling, sharing calendars and more, while reducing overall administrative time.
"This new study outlines the advancements online forums have made to the credit union movement as a whole," said Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer education. "Advancements in online technology have made it easier for secure materials to be shared safely, immediately and effectively, guaranteeing that credit union volunteers have all the materials they need, when they need them."
The CUNA Volunteer Network keeps its members informed and connected to their credit union peers by providing exclusive access to current industry news and research, case studies, a list serv of peers, board training courses, discounts on educational opportunities and more.
