Recently, CUToday interviewed our very own VP of Compliance Gaye DeCesare in an article about Reg Relief S.2155. Gaye, who is also head of our outsourced compliance service CU Works Compliance, has been in the credit union compliance arena for more than 25 years, had some serious opinions about the matter: how the benefits have been inflated, and how confusion around the changes cause more harm than good (hint: don't do anything sudden!)

Back in July, we asked our loyal blog readers to take our survey on their credit union's culture. We were curious to know where credit unions stood on various company-culture issues, like tattoos and piercings. The results are in, and I've compiled them into this handy infographic.
On August 16, we published a case study on Denver-based Fitzsimons Credit Union and the benefits they have received from outsourcing to us. Overall, outsourcing some of their accounting processes has increased efficiency within the department (in some areas reducing time by 85%)!
