New aSmarterChoice Blog Is Now Live
WASHINGTON (1/7/14)--A new blog has been added to the list of resources available at aSmarterChoice.org, the Credit Union National Association's consumer website.

The blog will be updated daily with new insightful and informative posts to increase awareness of credit unions, the credit union difference, and credit union financial education efforts. Credit unions will also have a chance to highlight their own community efforts by submitting stories to the blog.

Amaia Kirtland, CUNA social and digital media manager, encouraged credit unions to check the blog frequently and share their favorite blog posts on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

ASmarterChoice.org, CUNA's consumer website, was launched in 2011 by CUNA and state credit union associations to provide information on credit unions to potential members and to press professionals. More site improvements are on the way in the upcoming weeks as part of a multi-phase modernization effort which includes the responsive design and other updates.

The modernization effort will include enhanced tools for mobile phone and tablet users.
