The CUNA Compliance Community launched three years ago.
What started as a new platform to provide compliance resources and allow members to connect has evolved. The community grew and changed to fit members’ needs.
We’ve learned some important lessons on how you can get the most out of the community.
What can it do for you?
CUNA Compliance Community is home base for all of CUNA’s compliance resources. You’ll find:
Users also find networking and discussion threads on the platform. These online conversations allow users to share creative solutions and everyday struggles, and make meaningful connections with peers across the country.
This concept of shared information and cooperation fits perfectly within the cooperative model credit unions already follow. In fact, this ability to connect with peers is one of the highlights of the community.
The support and connections members find is invaluable.
The reviews from members have been overwhelmingly positive.
“CUNA has been so helpful to me, and the communities are truly communities in the most family oriented sense of the word. We are all here to help each other, and I always find the information I need,” one user notes.
Another user comments, “CUNA Compliance Community is where I am able to connect with other compliance professionals and discuss regulations or best practices. I would not be as successful in my current position without the community.”
Some look at the community as an extension of the added benefits members receive while attending our schools and conferences.
“When I go to conferences, I feel that networking is an important piece to a successful event. CUNA Compliance Community is an extension of that networking opportunity. We share valuable information here,” a user notes.
Making these connections can be as simple as asking a quick question or seeking out peers through the community’s robust search capabilities.
To date, the community includes more than 5,200 members from all 50 states and more than 2,000 credit unions. New members join daily.
CUNA Compliance Community members have shared more than 740 files with one another, including sample policies, checklists, staff training materials, and presentations.
About 1,600 individuals log in each day to create and add new content.
Since the community’s launch in October 2015, members have started more than 5,500 discussion threads and written more than 19,000 posts.
CUNA’s compliance attorneys are active users as well. They’ve contributed more than 650 blog posts on everything from recent NCUA webinars to breaking down complexities in regulations such as the Military Lending Act.
