cbanc Network reaches 10000-users mark
AUSTIN, Texas (5/21/12)--cbanc Network, an online collaboration community of 4,400 credit unions and banks, surpassed 10,000 financial institution-member users last week.

The network continues to add about 30 new members per day. cbanc reached the 10,000 milestone after starting with 80 members three years ago. The network has users from 15% of U.S. credit unions and 52% of U.S. banks.

"Getting 10,000 users means both banking and credit union professionals can find peer content solutions to just about any problem they post to the network," said Myers Dupuy, cbanc president. "Our goal is to get every bank and credit union professional in the industry collaborating with each other to solve any issue that arises."

About 90% of cbanc's growth has occurred since December 2010, which can be attributed to Google picking up the content that cbanc members provide on a daily basis--and to member referrals, Dupuy said.

The participation of the first 500 members was essential to cbanc's growth, Dupuy said. Their participation is what allowed Google to pick up cbanc as an information resource, he added.
