CUAnswers sponsors two contests
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (2/5/10)--CU*Answers, a credit union service organization based in Grand Rapids, Mich., is offering two contests for its credit union clients. The first contest, which CU*Answers has sponsored for the past two years, aims to broadcast the credit union message. Credit unions are challenged to create a video that best promotes the topic, “Your Credit Union is Everywhere.” The winning credit union will receive $1,500. Entries are due Feb. 15. The winner will be announced at the CU*Answers Leadership Conference on June 23. The winning video will be premiered at the conference. Videos will be judged by CU*Answers staff, board members and Fulvew Productions. Use the link to view past winning videos. CU*Answers also is sponsoring its Spec Writer contest, which will reward $2,500 to the person who designs the best spec for an integrated CU*BASE tool. A good project spec requires imagining and clearly explaining big-picture, high level overview of the project and including details that define how the software will behave and what the end-use experience will be, CU*Answers said. Specs must be submitted by April 30 in Microsoft Word documents, and include an introduction that can be adapted for a release summary when the project is implemented. Detail and structure guidelines for the specs are available on CU*Answers’ website. Suggested project ideas include creating an on-demand process for members opting into a credit union’s skip-a-pay program, a configuration and work process to handle common wire transfers, and integration of a savings bond redemption flow into teller processing. Original ideas are recommended, said the CUSO. For more information, use the links.
