New CUNA Website Design Emphasizes User Ease
WASHINGTON (3/18/13)--When you click onto this morning, you will immediately notice a transformation that was almost a year in the making. The Credit Union National Association has completely re-thought and redesigned its website to make it more appealing to users both in function and graphic elements.

"We have incorporated graphic 'theaters' throughout, so our pages have lost their out-dated, static appearances and have come alive with rotating displays of the most important and current information in each content area."

CUNA has also completely revamped its website search function. Users can start with a keyword search, and then refine that search by sorting through filters that will result in the most relevant "finds."

The website now is organized into seven "channels," or content areas. Each of the channels have theaters that will promote up to five top issues or hot products and services for that area.

The channels and their contents are:

  • Stay Informed: Access CUNA's daily online news service News Now, the newly launched weekly, "The Cheney Report," CUNA's members-only bi-weekly Credit Union NewsWatch, the monthly Credit Union Magazine, press releases, and more;
  • Grassroots: Find information on Hike the Hill, the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee, Project Zip Code, and the grassroots action center, among other advocacy tools;
  • Legislative & Regulatory: This section holds the latest legislative updates and legislative hot topics, as well as archived materials, the weekly Regulatory Advocacy Report, CUNA comment calls and comment letters, final rule analyses, as well as other regulatory information. This location also houses State Governmental Affairs materials, such as issues digests and state legislation and regulation trackers;
  • Compliance: A compilation of copious compliance help, such as CompBlog, the E-Guide, additional compliance support;
  • Research and Strategy: Economics research and strategy are found here, plus products that help credit unions plan for their future, like the Credit Union Environmental Escan, and survey products;
  • Marketing and Member Education: This is the credit union system's premiere location for all products and services that provide help to credit unions as they market their products, explore business development and member retention and growth;
  • Training and Events: This channel focuses on training products that are available to all credit unions.
"Set aside a few minutes. Explore our new site," Nohelty invites credit unions. "I think you are going to like what you find."
