Volunteer Leadership

Strong collaborative partnerships are crucial for the ongoing success of Credit Union movement in its efforts to build data analytics maturity and drive digital transformation. Credit Unions with limited resources but excellent community partnerships can collaborate aggressively to drive this transformation. At CULytics, we have established a volunteer leadership structure of “Community Chairs” that work across credit unions to support their data analytics and digital transformation initiatives.

The role of the community chairs is to be responsive to the CULytics community as well as their local credit unions. Community chair concept centers around the idea of “community building” and creating “conditions that matter” in the credit union industry. Community chairs help lead and synergize efforts that bring people together, helps people build a common vision for shared efforts, and mentors additional leaders to help the initiative grow and evolve.
