Your new favorite hashtag (you didn’t forget what those are, right?)
Writing posts on here and sharing them is great. But it’s one-way. Sure, you can comment (and you should!), but it’s not a conversation. For that, we need immediacy. If only there were some technology to enable it. Enter: #CUQandA Twitter Chats!
What Is It
Twitter chats are live conversations, where any number of interested parties can connect in a low-pressure environment (no dress code required!). Each one will focus on questions timely to the industry as a whole. Essentially, they’re questions you’ve asked in your staff meetings and planning sessions!
How To Attend
When: Every when the need arises. This page will be updated with the next date.
Where: Twitter, using the hashtag #CUQandA
Tools: A Twitter account and your favorite device/service (I use TweetDeck.)
What to bring: We’ll share the question list here. Your role is simply to tell the great stories from your credit union!
Rules: We’re very strict. Harsh emoji will be used in the case of rule-breakers. Maybe even animated GIFs. All questions will be shared as Q1, Q2, etc. Just answer using A1, A2, etc. and remember to use #CUQandA for every tweet!
Topic: Member Engagement Opportunities & Challenges
For the debut conversation, I partnered with Sarah Snell Cooke (@SarahSnellCooke) of Cooke Consulting Solutions. You may remember when she was the Editor-In-Chief of Credit Union Times. Talk about someone who knows engagement!
I’m not on Twitter. Can I still join? By visiting #CUQandA, you can see all the posts as they arrive. However, to participate, you will need a Twitter account.
Do all my tweets need to include the #CUQandA text? Yes. This ensures that all other participants can see your contribution!
Will there be a roundup of the event posted following? Yes. We will share all completed Twitter chats on this page.
We look forward to learning from you all soon!
