Welcome to episode 6 of Credit Union Innovators. My guest is UFirst Federal Credit Union board member Ginny Brady. Located in Plattsburgh, New York, UFirst has the only credit union board-member-authored blog on the Internet.
I met Ginny through the micro-blogging service, Twitter, in mid-2007. She is a passionate, tech-savvy credit union cheerleader who is a bundle of social media energy!
If you are a credit union professional or a member of a credit union board, do yourself a favour and listen to what Ginny has to say about blogging. In her 15 months of active blogging on the Boardcast, she has gained valuable insights into what makes a successful credit union blog work.

Looking for innovators
If you know a credit union innovator who I should interview, please e-mail me at tmcalpine at currencymarketing dot ca.
My plan is to continue to interview two innovators per month, so I am going to need all the help I can get to fill my podcast roster! For the most part, the innovators I have interviewed to date are involved in the social media and technology space, but I am looking for innovators in all aspects of the credit union movement. Send them my way!
