Welcome to the new ChangeEverything.ca!

ChangeEverything.caLadies and gentlemen, I introduce you to the the brand new ChangeEverything.ca.

This has been a long time in the works. Since we launched two years ago, we have identified new functionality we wanted, usability issues we wanted to resolve and design enhancements we wanted to make. With this relaunch, we got almost everything we wanted.

The site revolves much more around the people now, and not just around text. It’s easier to use. And it’s pretty too.

This project would not have been possible without Kate Dugas, who has animated this community in an amazing way. This relaunch is a testament to her vision of what our community could be.

I want to thank Currency Marketing for designing such an amazing site. And Affinity Bridge, an amazing development shop that understands how to harness technology to build community.

I hope you enjoy.

Interview with me on NACUSO blog.

The Groundswell: Credit Unions Develop Online CommunitiesI had a great conversation this week with Jim Jerving who is a primary writer for the NACUSO blog (National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations).

We chatted about a whole host of ways that credit unions can use social media to open conversations between and among their employees and their members.

Today he published some of what we spoke about on his blog in a post titled The Groundswell: Credit Unions Develop Online Communities. It’s nice to see such a good conversation turn into such a good blog post.

By the way, the purpose of NACUSO is to…

…be the catalyst for instituting collaboration, innovation, and the reinvention of the Credit Union industry.

Posts like this get to the very heart of that purpose.

Thanks Jim!
