A winning paperless strategy for credit unions

first_imgFinding ourselves drifting through August here in the States, there’s a definitive undercurrent of planning that happens as we all try to enjoy a little more summer. For parents, it means grabbing the required items for “back to school.” For kids and school-age athletes inspired by the 2016 Olympics, it means enduring rigorous conditioning in immense heat and humidity as they prepare for the start of their seasons.For many in the workforce, it means taking into account the goals we want to accomplish by the end of the year; reprioritizing, organizing and developing strategies to meet them.We know that reducing clutter is one of the most effective ways to promote momentum, but often taking the time to recognize where it is most hindering—and addressing it—seems daunting.

I am not an every weekend punter, but I certainly go to all the major events,” he said.“We were very lucky, we registered interest to buy the unit, when it first went public.“When we moved into the area nearly 20 years ago, we knew of the development, and I said to my wife that we’d always buy a unit there, regardless.”Mr Nielsen said at the time he purchased he was able to secure a unit with the view he wanted, which was a winning post view with the main straight. “We bought it straight away.” Ascot House has an 800sq m roof terrace and elevated pool deck overlooking the racetrack.He said since moving in, they had cemented themselves with the local community through the use of local communal spaces.“The development has a very spacious rooftop terrace with a large pool, and then we have the use of … a large grass area running against the racecourse, and the Brisbane Racing Club has generously let us use the areas around the racecourse.“There is still some very big parkland areas and I can spend more time there outside kicking a football and there are more areas to do it. “Whereas in a backyard on a 600sq m block, if you kick the ball hard enough it will be over the neighbour’s fence, but now I can kick and throw as I go and the boys can go chase it.”Mirvac Queensland residential development general manager Warwick Bible said Ascot Green was geared towards owner-occupiers.
