Three BarCampBanks in Three Weekends

March 27, 2008

I’m excited to be attending three BarCampBanks over the next three weekends. I thought it was going to be just two, until BarCampBank founder Frederic Baud discovered that Jonah Keegan is putting together BarCampMoneyNYC on April 12. Jonah embarked on this endeavor without knowing about the BarCampBanks on the docket. And he’s glad that his event is now part of this movement. Dan Reynolds and I are getting on a plane bright and early tomorrow morning for San Fran. For those who want to follow along, here are the info/networking pages for each event. CrowdVine is designed for attendees to connect with each other before, during and after the event, but if you want to virtually follow, feel free to join in there.

The quality of people, ideas, topics, and sessions on the agenda is amazing. Check out the links above if you don’t believe me. I am preparing to be floored at these events, and will try to blog, tweet, and photograph as much as I can. If anyone has any questions for any of the attendees at these events, please feel free to share them with me and I’ll relay to the best of my ability.

Special thanks to EverythingCU.com designer, Nate Duval, for the spectacular logos for BarCampBank SF and BarCampBank NewEngland.

The Boardcast gets a new look

February 12, 2008

Nate Duval, designer extraordinaire for EverythingCU, has given Ginny Brady’s Boardcast a brand new look. Ginny is the CU movement’s first board member to blog, on behalf of UFirst FCU in Plattsburgh NY, and we’re excited to have a hand in helping her with this update.

Nate did a terrific job in interpreting Ginny’s desire to have a clean, new modern look, that had its own identity, yet related in look to UFirst FCU. My favorite aspect of Nate’s new design is by going with a white background, the design now reinforces what is a central principle for the Boardcast — to bring the ideas, thoughts and concerns of the Board of Directors out in the open — to allow for true conversation between Board and concerned members, something which seems very natural for a democratically elected Board to do. In other words, shining a bright light on what has previously been a closed-door environment.

We here at EverythingCU sincerely hope that Ginny’s Boardcast starts a trend with Board of Directors at CUs across North America, and indeed around the world. The fact that we had the privilege to work with Ginny was itself due to social networking. I first had the privilege of meeting Ginny in Spokane, where she was presenting her blogging experience on a panel alongside William Azaroff and Trey Reeme at the WCUL’s annual convention. When I realized that Ginny’s home base was but a four-hour car ride from EverythingCU headquarters in Western Mass, I knew a visit was in order. When I visited Plattsburgh, I learned that EverythingCU was already known to the credit union, especially rock star Adam Lueb who had smoothly assisted UFirst FCU with upgrading their online switch kit when they redesigned their web site.

Live World 2.0 workshop in Lake George NY

November 30, 2007

Myself and the EverythingCU team is getting pumped for a live, hands-on World 2.0 workshop taking place in Lake George, NY next week on Wednesday, December 5. The combined chapters of the Adirondack and Capital Regions of the NYSCUL are hosting us. We’ve instructed all the participants to BRING THEIR LAPTOPS. We’re not just going to be talking about World 2.0 and social media/networking, we’re going to be DOING IT. We’re so excited about the sites and tools we’re going to be covering. It will be an eye-opening experience for all the attendees, and will hopefully catapult their respective CUs into this new wired digital age. It’s exciting! And we’re so excited to be meeting several long-time EverythingCU members, including President Charles Folensbee of Saratoga Community CU. Walter Everhardt, VP of Marketing for First New York FCU is going to be there, along with President Linda Bourgeois, and Director of Marketing Jody Carpenter of UFirst FCU in Plattsburgh. Ginny Brady, blogging Board Member of UFirst FCU will be with us virtually via twitter, as will our own Matt Taggart and Nate Duval…. can’t wait! Dan Reynolds and Adam Lueb will be assisting me in person. If you can’t make it, please join in via twitter…. here I am on twitter.
