NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

It was a great week in Greenville, SC, where NAFCU hosted its Strategic Growth Conference.  There was a great discussion all week about how you can balance technology and humanity - balancing the digital and analog worlds. 

And I just had it happen to me. I'm sitting in the Greenville airport, and there's no gate assigned for my flight back to DC. So I set an alarm to remind myself to get up and check on the gate in about 30 minutes. But then I got this text...


A small piece of technology - a text - removed a little bit of friction in my life.  

Now...on to this week's reading pile.
