The incentive to contribute to the community is two-fold.
First, it’s about helping others in your industry fight the same fight as you: compliance insanity, vendor decisions. operational best practices, etc. The help you and other members provide is going to be visible through Thanks!, CBANC’s new reputation system. Your community reputation will be based on how much other members say your contribution made a real impact on their job.
Second, as you contribute to CBANC over time, your work and the *Thanks!* you receive from the community will build up and carry with you (even if you switch banks or credit unions). This peer-validated work portfolio will tell a story of your demonstrated competencies beyond your resume or LinkedIn profile. It’s street cred that you’ve earned; use it.
