GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (12/18/12)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based credit union service organization (CUSO), has debuted an Executive Study Groups website.

The site coincides with the weekly Dashboard Dives web conferences facilitated by CEO, Randy Karnes. Credit unions can blog with each other on questions they may have about content related to the Dashboard Dives sessions. They also can communicate success stories using the data that they have available to them through CU*BASE, CU*Answers' core platform, or other services provided by the CUSO.

The focus of the website and the Web conferences is to promote the management of data that is available through CU*Base. Credit union representatives can work with colleagues and learn Karnes would use the information if he were a credit union executive.

CU*Answers also has published the latest version of its publication, Remember This? The educational series provides clients with a look back at existing features of CU*BASE or other services provided by the CUSO.

In the December edition, the series recounts the Member in Good Standing function available to credit union staff in CU*BASE.
