first_imgLooking to stand out in your market? Looking to connect with your community in new and different ways? Struggling to get members to come to you, and looking to go the them instead? You may want to consider a mobile branch. Read that again… not mobile banking, but mobile branching!A mobile branch is, literally, a branch on wheels. Your mobile branch can take many forms.  It can be the size of a small camper or a large semi. It can be an external-only, unstaffed branch with ATMs and ITMs. Or it can include interior space where you can meet members to open accounts and originate loans. Obviously you’d wrap it in your credit union colors and logo!The community connection opportunities are endless. Your mobile branch is available for community events, fairs and festivals. When not in use at these community events, schedule it at strategic locations on regular intervals where you can enjoy built-in traffic: outside a major employer one or two days a week, at a large apartment complex one afternoon through early evening.  You may want to use it on weekends to partner with your local auto dealers to drive (no pun intended) traffic and attention to their car lots.Other things you should consider include:Disaster Recovery Planning – Your mobile branch can be a key part of your disaster recovery planDisaster Support for your Community – Even if your branches are intact after a natural disaster hits your community, you could place your mobile branch in an area where other financial institutions’ locations are temporarily inaccessible. Leverage the situation to serve the community and gain new membersTemporary use while renovating a branch – A mobile branch can serve as your temporary location while renovating a branch. Instead of renting a temporary building, apply that money toward owning a mobile branch. If you are preparing to renovate a number of branches, you’ll pay for the cost of mobile branch after just a few branch remodelsTest a location – Curious whether a certain location is worthy of brick and mortar? Place your mobile branch in that location (for only the cost of renting the parking lot and surrounding spaces) and “test before you invest”With so many good uses, a mobile branch is worth a look.  In a crowded field where you compete for members’ and potential members’ attention, you can position your credit union by going to them instead of making them come to you! 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joe Karlin Joe Karlin has worked with or at credit unions his entire career.  Starting as a CPA with Deloitte and Touche, he audited credit unions, corporates, and leagues.  Joe spent nearly … Detailslast_img read more

first_imgLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> On most mornings, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope awakens to find a missed call.It might be from his wife, or one of his sons. Whoever it is, he tries to call them back within a reasonable time frame — a little trickier to do these days three time zones apart.“Every day we try to talk on FaceTime, try to talk after practice and stuff like that throughout the day,” Caldwell-Pope said. “Try to stay in contact as much as possible.”Of the many things the NBA players and staff are missing these days in the Disney World bubble, one of the most commonly cited challenges is being away from family. It’s just been a week since the Lakers flew in, but already they’ve attempted to set up routines with FaceTime and frequent calls to stay in touch with families who won’t be likely to join them for at least a month. Others have said they’re staying in their room. During the hiatus, Caldwell-Pope said he crammed in weights and stationary cycle workouts in between helping his oldest son with homework. While he misses his family, he spends his recently acquired free time playing video games and watching shows.“The bubble’s been good for me actually,” he said. “I’m not a big complainer. The stuff we do in here, just chilling in our room, is the stuff we do at home.”Still, the odd circumstances and the inability to roam free beyond the campus borders creates a bit of inherent tension that requires a day off now and then. Even though the Lakers have hit upon the need to get back to basketball shape, they need to pace themselves in case they’ll be in place for three-plus months.“ I do think it’s important to mentally step away from it and come back with recharged batteries so to speak after an off day,” Vogel said.Caruso will wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ on jerseyAll but one Laker on the current roster is Black, but the one who is not has decided he’ll adopt the slogan “Black Lives Matter.”Alex Caruso, in his third year in the organization, announced on Tuesday that he had decided on that as his social justice message to be displayed on the back of his jersey when the restart kicks off on July 30. The movement which began as a response to police brutality against Black people has gained more mainstream prominence and acceptance in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.Caruso expanded on his reasoning on a call to media on Wednesday, saying that he wished he had more publicly supported the movement earlier.“I thought about the people that look up to me, the people that watch me play and the people that tell me on Instagram and Twitter and when I see them in random spots in LA and back home that they look up to me and that I’m an inspiration to them and how I’ve gotten to where I am and how hard I play and the way I play, so a lot of those things just went into it,” he said. “And then Black Lives Matter seemed to be the thing that just struck a chord with me and I thought would be the most impactful.”Caruso has said before he’s supportive of his Black teammates and their commitment to social justice, and many of whom have been talking and demonstrating publicly about issues close to them.“I think this quarantine period has been a good amount of time for me to kind of reflect and do some thinking and get down to the bottom of who I am as a person and what I’m trying to be about,” he said. “And I think this is a good way of showing it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersFrank Vogel said for him and his staff, family can serve as a getaway from work. Removing those people from their physical presence can be grating and make coaches delve completely into basketball without a break.“It’s difficult because you can’t just go home and spend time with them,” he said. “Me personally, I’m relying pretty heavily on FaceTime. It’s not perfect but I spend a lot of my nights basically in the same room as my wife and my daughters on FaceTime, having dinner together and just enjoying each other’s company. That’s the important piece to trying to get away.”That isn’t to say that the Lakers aren’t adjusting to bubble pursuits: On the team’s first off-day, Vogel and Alex Caruso said they played golf, one of the outdoor activities authorized on the Disney campus. Caruso called the Disney campus, “professional summer camp.”That has helped bond new teammates to the group, Caruso said. His golf cadre on Tuesday included assistant coach Mike Penberthy and recent addition J.R. Smith.“He’s a really good golfer too, so it was a lot of fun to see him in action,” Caruso said. “He’s being a great teammate through the first week of being a teammate, or however long it’s been, and he’s just bringing a lot of energy and a lot of joy to the game.”last_img read more
