Stakeholder Feedback on New Design, Functionality Welcomed
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Sept. 28, 2015) – The National Credit Union Administration today invited stakeholders to preview and provide feedback on the design, functionality and navigation of a preview version of the agency’s new public website.
“One of my top priorities has been improving communications with stakeholders, and improving the online experience has been an important element of this goal,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said. “The new website was developed with that goal in mind, so we’ve made it more intuitive and accessible. Whether the website is viewed on a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop, users should be able to quickly navigate and find the information they need.”
Based on feedback from stakeholders, the new test site, available online here, features a new professional look and feel, a mobile-responsive design and improved navigation that allows users to find information more easily. For example, the website incorporates a user-centric “I am a…” search feature that allows users to self-identify and quickly access the agency’s most frequently requested content. The preview site also features a redesigned newsroom where users can access the latest news, read articles from The NCUA Report and download graphics and photos.
“I encourage all interested parties to preview the website and provide us with feedback,” Matz said. “Your suggestions and critiques will allow us to refine the final product and ensure the new website will be a valuable and useful resource to the entire credit union community.”
During the new site’s preview period, the agency will continue to make additional improvements, add new features and enhance content. Users can send their comments on the preview of the new website by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, while the web team will make every effort to update the test website with the latest news and information, there may be delays as new features and content are added. For now, www.ncua.gov, will continue to be the definitive source for the latest news and information from NCUA until the new website is formally launched later in the year.
NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share
Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of
state-chartered credit unions. At MyCreditUnion.gov, NCUA also educates the public on consumer protection and financial literacy issues.
