LAS VEGAS (10/23/09)--Credit unions can follow happenings at this year’s Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Community Credit Union and Growth Conference in Las Vegas by visiting CUNA’s YES CU blog. The conference kicked off Wednesday and will continue through Saturday in Las Vegas. The theme is “Share the Vision. Shape the Future.” This year’s conference combines the CUNA's YES Summit, Reach Out, and Community Credit Union conferences. Josh Jones, CUNA manager of new media and communications, is live-blogging from event. He will provide updates on keynote speakers, breakout sessions and other events through blog postings and video. Jones blogged last year from CUNA’s YES Summit along with Phil Heckman, CUNA director of youth programs, and Christopher Morris, CUNA Councils web manager. “We took the original YES blog and re-branded it for the conference, and repurposed the editorial focus so that we cover growth and other issues in addition to youth and young adults,” Jones said. “The moniker is now ‘Your Essential Strategies for Growth.’” The blog also includes “quick quips”--a running status update that appears live on the blog’s main page to give viewers immediate information.
