CUNA Webinars: May
- Keep staff updated on regulations with CUNA's Avoiding Social Media Compliance Pitfalls webinar taking place May 15 from 2-3 p.m. (ET). Credit unions who use social media to advertise specific share accounts, loan products and other services, in addition to sharing “good news” stories, sometimes forget that social media is “advertising” that is applicable to rules and regulations. The session will review advertising trigger terms for loans and share accounts, explain when required advertising disclosures can be “one-click” away and discuss social media pitfalls credit unions should avoid. Registration is $219 for CUNA affiliated credit unions.
