Blogger Wanted for BC-based Credit Union

posted by Brendan Hodgson

I was reading Alexandra Samuel’s Social Signal blog the other day, and one of her entries caught my eye. Vancity, a BC-based credit union, has engaged the Social Signal team to help them roll out an online community-building exercise which is to be unveiled later this summer, and is looking for a blogger to support their online engagement activities.

According to Alexandra, “the project will create an online community where people in the Lower Mainland & Victoria can find information, tools and connections to inspire and support change in their own lives, their communities, and the world.”

Having scouted around the Vancity web site, I can see how such a program could easily fit into the credit union’s long-standing track record of community engagement. In fact, and based purely on what I’ve seen, I’m surprised they haven’t already moved in this direction. No matter, I’ll be looking forward to seeing what eventually comes from this.
