Filed under: Current Issues in Credit Unions
I’m sure that 2008 will bring many new blog topics. Our New Year’s resolution is to use more video! The tools have been there for a long time, but this year is the time to make it happen. Video is harder than audio, but the results are appreciated so it’s worthwhile.
Speaking of audio, we did a “best of” show on CiiCU this month. Here are the details:
Throughout our 20 shows, we’ve offered tips on various topics. This “best of” show puts many of those tip segments all in one episode. (It also lets us take a vacation this month)!

WWR credit union attorney John Porter recently moved to our Columbus office. We are excited about this move and the opportunity for him to get more closely involved with credit unions in the Columbus area.
Yesterday, my daughter and I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for Unity Catholic FCU’s new branch. It was very well attended and the Mayor of the City of Brunswick, Dale Strasser, gave a speech and cut the ribbon. State Representative Bill Batchelder also made an appearance and talked about how much he believes in the value of credit unions. I made a short video of the event that you can watch below.
I enjoy attending branch openings and I particularly enjoy seeing credit unions grow and help the communities in which they do business prosper. The credit union’s CEO, Tamlyn Straight-Schervish and her staff did a terrific job with this event. My daughter enjoyed it because she won a stuffed bear for herself and another one for her sister.
