How to become your members primary financial institution

first_imgDeciding where to do your banking is not as simple as it once was. There are thousands of financial institutions available at your fingertips in our well-connected digital world. While brick and mortar are still important, branch and ATM access is only part of the overall equation. Credit unions are asking themselves not only how do we capture and hold onto our members, but also how can we nurture that relationship so that loyalty grows?  How can we become our members’ primary financial institution?Where To Start?A good place to start would be to have a better understanding of what your members’ (and potential members’) needs and expectations might be. According to recent research by Visa, over the course of the next few years, Millennials will come to represent the largest workforce segment of our population. An incredible 75% by the year 2025! They already outnumber Baby Boomers and are fast becoming an influential part of our economy. Understanding Millennial banking needs and habits is a critical part of keeping your credit union relevant. Providing up-to-date, digital banking via convenient electronic channels should be a priority. Member services that support them best will build satisfaction, loyalty, and potentially invoke balance transfers and account migration. continue reading » 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Ennis’ average performance doesn’t hurt balanced Syracuse attack

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 10, 2014 at 12:30 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 On Monday against Notre Dame, it was C.J. Fair who was human. When Syracuse hosted Clemson on Sunday, it was Tyler Ennis.“Once in a while,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said, “he needs to show that he’s human and have a bad game.”The Tigers managed to hold the star freshman to just six points on 3-of-11 shooting. He still led the No. 1 Orange with five assists in its 57-44 win on Sunday in the Carrier Dome, but he wasn’t the dominant point guard that teammates and coaches have grown used to — not that he needed to be.Ennis scored a bucket early in the game, but vanished for most of the first half. He limited his shots — essentially only forcing up shots when the shot clock was winding down — but he wasn’t threading his pinpoint passes through the defense like he usually does, either.Sunday marked the second straight game that he was held to single digits, but neither time mattered. Syracuse has enough other playmakers that can step up and run the offense.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When we can run our offense through C.J. (Fair) when he’s hitting and then have Jerami (Grant), Rak (Christmas), Trevor (Cooney) and whoever else is able to score out there, it makes it so much easier,” Ennis said.But once again, Ennis emerged at the end of the game — although this time that outcome was essentially decided.He made a layup with less than seven minutes remaining to cap a 6-0 run and extend the Orange’s lead to 48-37.Four minutes later, he hit another layup. And two minutes after that, SU emptied its bench.“We didn’t play great offensively in the second half, but we made big plays when we had to,” Boeheim said. “That’s what this team is all about. We are aware that these next coming games are hard and will keep working and getting better toward the end of the year.” Commentslast_img read more

GARDAI FACING €60M CUTS: MacLOCHLAINN CONDEMNS ‘SAVAGE ATTACK ON RURAL IRELAND’

first_imgDONEGAL TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has condemned the €60M Garda cuts across the country.More than 100 Garda stations will close and 14 rural districts scrapped. Five stations will go in Donegal and the Glenties district scrapped.He described the plan as “a savage attack on rural Ireland”. The Donegal North-East TD said: “Today’s news that another hundred garda stations will be closed will be a further serious blow to rural Ireland as well as some urban communities who have already disproportionately suffered under the cuts regime imposed by this and the previous government.“This savage attack will also see 14 rural garda districts closed in an effort to centralise the policing of huge swathes of rural Ireland in to urban areas.”He added: “Both the Irish Farmers’ Association and the Garda Representatives Association, the representatives of rural Ireland and of the vast majority of Gardaí, have repeatedly rejected these ongoing station closures as they know the value of community policing. These are people who know rural communities unlike those who are in charge of drafting these proposals.“The government are attempting to spin this reform of policing structures when we all know that is the austerity agenda at work here under the mask of “reform.” Sinn Féin put forward budget proposals this week demonstrating how the deficit could be closed without targeting frontline services. Rural communities should not have to suffer even more because of the fiscal ineptitude of the government.”    GARDAI FACING €60M CUTS: MacLOCHLAINN CONDEMNS ‘SAVAGE ATTACK ON RURAL IRELAND’ was last modified: December 5th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GARDAI FACING €60M CUTS: MacLOCHLAINN CONDEMNS ‘SAVAGE ATTACK ON RURAL IRELAND’last_img read more
