League unveils new site, highlights key features
Thursday, January 9, 2014
The Carolinas Credit
Union League launched the newly designed www.carolinasleague.org, completing a web consolidation process of more than
four months. Built on the same membership
management platform as the former South Carolina Credit Union League’s
website, carolinasleague.org optimizes navigation with
added tabs for Advocacy, Compliance, Professional Development, and
Community. The web team was led by CCUL Vice President of PR &
Communications Brandon Pugh and included CCUL staff, with
design support from Third Degree
One of the more
robust functions of the site is the ability
for league-member credit unions, business
partners, and CCUL staff to create individual profiles within the site. Once
logged in, users have access to exclusive site features including CU Directory Search, Community Groups, Post-a-Job form, and more.
See The Beginner’s Guide on how to get started.
Community Groups at carolinasleague.org allow members to join online
groups within three group types: chapters, asset size, and expertise. Once a
user joins a group, he or she can network with its other
members, start and join forum discussions,
post group-related photos, keep up with group
events, and learn from each other.
"We heard clearly that credit unions want their league to be a unifying influence and a champion of cooperation, and the Community section will empower them to connect and collaborate,” said CCUL’s Brandon Pugh. "We’re excited about this section and its potential as more members create profiles.”The CCUL Communications Department also revised
online publications for the league, blending the best
features of the former leagues’ pieces and adding a couple new pieces. View the
descriptive list of new publications here.
team continues to add site details daily, and companion sub-sites include the grassroots action platform Vocus, League
InfoSight for compliance resources, and the Credit Union
Webinar Network through Financial Education and Development (FED) to round out professional development offerings.Anyone
