ADA compliance is on the minds of many credit unions right now, and for good reason. Lawsuits are on the rise, so it’s important that credit unions mitigate risk associated with their websites and put themselves in a safe position. Over the last few months, we have had many clients ask us about ADA compliance, what can be done to mitigate risk, and how changes can be made painlessly.

In this post, I’ll cover answers to these questions. First, I want to tell you about ADA compliance strategy. Then, I’ll talk a bit about a new partnership between BloomCU and an ADA compliance specialist called User1st.


ADA Strategy

In our recent article published by CUInsight, we explained why 100% ADA compliance is actually unreasonable. Given that “full” compliance isn’t reasonable, a better strategy is to mitigate risk. Learn more about the strategy of risk mitigation and steps you can take by reading 100% ADA Compliance is a Lie.
