NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (6/11/08)--The National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations (NACUSO) announced it has launched a blog journal on its newly redesigned website. The site was launched April 28 during the NACUSO 2008 Annual Conference in Las Vegas. The manager of the blog will be Jim Jerving, who owns a communications business and serves as board chairman of Heritage CU, Madison, Wis. His first post, “Developing Networks: A Matter of Survival,” is focused on networking and the views of Randy Karnes, CU*Answers CEO. “The blog will focus on the issues that are important to NACUSO and its National Center for Collaboration and Innovation as well as credit unions--critical thinking, innovation, collaboration and implementation,” said Thomas Davis, NACUSO CEO. “The blog is another means of bringing added value to the members of NACUSO.” A donation by PSCU Financial Services’ to the National Center for Collaboration allowed NACUSO to expedite the website redesign and blog development. Collaboration between credit unions and credit union service organizations is one of the center’s primary goals.
