5 small credit union biz hacks - Hack 2: Get to know one another

Open and honest communication forges strong bonds between friends. Apply that same thinking organizationally, between lines of business, and you may discover the same outcome. Have IT work with the line-of-business to understand its challenges (its vulnerabilities) and create solutions to solve those problems.

Go one step further and make your technology vendor your partner. Attend user meetings and conferences, pursue training, and create connections with other like-minded credit union leaders. 

As a small credit union, you likely already embrace the hack lifestyle, because you work with what you’ve got, improvising solutions to everyday challenges. As long as you play smart, you’ll dominate the competition.
