Your credit union roadmap

first_imgImplementing a cloud-based document management platform is an integral part of a modern credit union’s operational infrastructure. Every day, hundreds of files flow in and out of your organization – many of which contain highly sensitive and proprietary information. Traditional document management systems based on paper files and folders and/or on-premise servers can quickly show their vulnerabilities in the face of unexpected incidents such as cyberattacks, or natural disasters. In comparison, a cloud-based document management and workflow solution provides a more reliable, efficient, and secure alternative. It enables you to digitally transform your credit union by streamlining your workflow and safeguarding your data, all while remaining compliant with regulations for credit unions.So what would it take to implement such a system when you have limited IT resources? The good news is that if you choose the right technology and implementation partner, the path to digital transformation and improved customer experience doesn’t have to be daunting. That’s why we created The Credit Union Roadmap.

Pestina calls for permanent halt to Britain’s APD

first_img Share Share LocalNews Pestina calls for permanent halt to Britain’s APD by: – March 24, 2011 Former President of the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association (DHTA) Judith Pestaina, wants Britain to make permanent, a decision to hold over a planned increase in air passenger duty (APD), a tax which saw travellers flying out of Britain paying much more for flights.Britain said on Wednesday it is holding back the tax until the year 2012, in order to soften the blow on travellers in the midst of rising oil prices.The Caribbean Tourism Organisation and some leaders in the Caribbean have been speaking out strongly against the tax and have been lobbying the British government to change their mind, as they argued it will hurt Caribbean tourism.And Pestaina wants the lobbying to continue, as Dominica and others in the region attract British visitors. Pestaina has also contended that Dominicans residing in the United Kingdom would find it much harder to return home with the APD in effect.“We are quite concerned that this would mean a drastic reduction of visitors coming from the UK, and you know we have quite a number of Dominican nationals who come home regularly so that would mean it would be prohibitive,” she said.The controversial rise in the APD which had become effective in November 2010 saw passengers travelling from the UK to Caribbean destinations on an economy class ticket, paying £75 in APD, up from £50 in 2009 and £40 in 2007. Those travelling on first class, business or premium economy ticket were subject to heavy taxes on APD also.“With oil prices going up that would even become a worst scenario… you have fuel prices going up, the cost of travel…is going to escalate…then you would have people looking at other destinations which would be much less costly where they could travel for much cheaper prices… I know the Caribbean governments put up a strong lobby to ensure that this was not imposed so let’s hope that this is going to continue” Pestaina articulated.Source: DBS News Tweetcenter_img 35 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!

Iraq football hit by age fraud scandals

first_imgUndeceived by the players’ hairless cheeks, Baghdad airport officials found that nine members of the team had falsified ages on their passports.The IFA quickly dismissed the team’s officials, who players said had instructed them to shave to look younger.It also promised to take action against “players who falsified their age”.For weeks, anti-fraud activists had posted evidence online that some of the players had voted in Iraq’s May elections, proving they were over 18.To avoid a $30,000 (26,000 euros) non-participation fine from the tournament, Iraq’s under-14 team was sent to play in their stead.ADVERTISEMENT But a series of cases of alleged age fraud has put Iraq’s international football reputation back into jeopardy, with players and coaches warning that authorities have long turned a blind eye to cheating if it will bring home a win.Karim Saddam, one of the country’s football legends, said the Iraqi Football Association (IFA) “tries by any means, by any cost to have teams achieve victories and to take credit for it”.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’To do so, he said, “it will turn a blind eye to teams that have players with forged IDs”.The first tremor hit on July 30, when players on Iraq’s under-16 football squad were banned from taking off for a regional tournament in Jordan.

first_imgBrian ‘Dinky’ Dorrian is hoping his side can get off to a winning start on Sunday when they play Cavan/Monaghan select team at Ballyare.Brian ‘Dinky’ Dorrian is confident the squad he has assembled is good enough to get his Donegal League select side into the knockout stages of the Oscar Traynor competition. The former Sligo Rovers reserve and U20 manager, is the current boss at St Catherine’s, and has established himself as one of the top coaches in Donegal over the last decade.He unearthed the likes of Shaun Kelly (Derry City) and Seamus Coleman (Everton) during his time as manager of the underage sides at the Killybegs club. His focus now however, is to prepare the Donegal League side for their forthcoming Oscar Traynor campaign, which gets underway this Sunday.Dorrian’s side face a Cavan/Monaghan select side, who have returned to the competition after a number of years out of it and are something of an unknown entity.However, Dorrian has used his extensive contacts in the game to find out as much as he possibly can about the side he’s facing on Sunday.In the lead up to the match this Sunday, Dorrian spoke to Donegal Daily about his side’s prospects in the competition. Dorrian said, “We’ve assembled a good side, and we’ve a good mixture of experience and quality.“We’ve got both Matthew Crossan and Gary Crossan in the side, and those two have a wealth of experience at a very high level.“Shane O’Rourke who played in the League Of Ireland with Salthill is on-board, and Benny McLaughlin is also involved, so we’ve got a lot of quality and experience in the side.Dorrian admits his side need to give a good account of themselves in this year’s competition after a number of disappointing years in the competition in the last while.Dorrian has adopted an ultra professional approach to the competition, and his side have been preparing for the competition for over six weeks now, he’s hoping their approach pays dividends. “We’ve approached it as professionally as we can, and the players have responded to that really well.“They realise it’s an honour to represent your county at any level, and they’re looking forward to the competition.“We’ve played a number of matches, and we’ve performed well in them, we’ve met up collectively twice-a-week and the commitment the players have given so far has been top class.“We want to give a good account of ourselves, as players and as a management set-up, so we’re leaving no stone unturned in our preparation for the match. Dorrian admitted that neighbours and bitter rivals Inishowen are the benchmark his team are aiming to match.Inishowen reached the final of the competition two years ago, and made a semi-final appearance last year.“They’re a quality outfit, and they’ve shown that over the last number of years, they’ve raised the bar, and we need to get to that level.“But as I’ve said, I’m more than happy with the squad I have, and I believe we can have a good run in the competition.“Our aim is to get out of the group, and then see where that takes us, it’s going to be difficult, but we’re up for the challenge as a group, and are really looking forward to it.First up for Dorrian is that tricky assignment against Cavan/Monaghan on Sunday in Ballyare, kick-off is at 2.30pm.DORRIAN CONFIDENT HIS SIDE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT IN OSCAR TRAYNOR COMPETITION was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Brian ‘Dinky’ DorrianDonegal LeagueHome-page SportnewsOscar Traynor Teamlast_img read more
