    Walter, congratulations on your blog and podcast. We should begin a blog/podcast network in NYS. The Boardcast has been online since January – I blog from the BOD perspective.

    Good luck with your efforts – maybe we’ll run into each other at one of our NYS conferences.


  2. Ginny,
    Thank you for posting your comment. I checked your blog and I like it. It’s very similar to the thinking behind our blog – similar content, philosophy, etc… Just that mine is coming from management’s perspective rather than the BOD. Keep up the good work!

  3. Walt,
    Good job on the site. You are definitely heading in the right direction. The information that you are providing your members is right on target. Congrats to your team!

  4. Walt: I thoroughly enjoyed your credit union’s web site and am preparing a short article about it. Your content is practical, down-to-earth and informative for the general audience of CU members-at-large.
