User Advisory Board Temp

As CUtopia's products and services have grown over the years, we have consistently looked to our users to guide us in the development of solutions that address real issues and provide tangible industry benefits. The UAB is an extension of this philosophy and brings together a group of seasoned industry experts that lend an active voice which contributes to the growth of our services.

The UAB currently consists of five seasoned credit union business leaders that are both active

users and have leveraged the functionality of CUtopia Solutions to help their credit unions to grow. Many in this group have played key roles adding new products and enhancing functionality to existing products. The UAB meets quarterly, helps provide input planning such events as our annual users conference and keeps us on top of industry regulations and activity that may impact our products.

The UAB is equally important to our growing user base, acting as both an advocate and liaison that

allows any user to offer new ideas, ask questions or get the inside scoop. This enhances the two way communications process that we deem critical to our success and creates a more transparent organization.

If you have an idea, question or concern, we invite you to contact us.
