Chicago’s Taste of Randolph filled the streets of the city’s popular West Loop area yesterday to kick off day one of the three-day music and food event. Presented by Silver Wrapper, this year’s festival expanded to three stages, featuring some of our favorite funk acts and beyond including The Motet, Turkuaz, and Marco Benevento. Incorporating some of the city’s premier restaurants, talented artisans and eclectic vendors, Taste of Randolph is a unique event that serves to benefit the community.This year, fest organizers went above and beyond on creativity and production, creating a mini yet realistic Red Rocks “Denver Stage”. Attendees were blown away watching some of their favorite Colorado bands perform in a replica of one of the most breathtaking venues in the country.

But, keep in mind, not all CRM systems are created equal. Think of all the complex workflows behind many of the everyday member and customer interactions at your credit union or bank. A whole lot of CRM options don’t have the essential functionality you’ll need for successful implementation.That’s where a CRM designed specifically for your industry comes in. It’s a choice you’ll be glad you made, and here are three reasons why.Easy access to the right data and ready-to-use interfaces. There’s a very specific set of data your team members need in order to offer the best, most efficient experience possible. And it’s certainly not the same data you’d need in any other industry. Having a CRM that provides all relevant data on one screen – and that offers employees specific and relevant next-best actions, for example – is a game-changer. And the likelihood of finding that on a system not built around finance-specific info is pretty slim.

Recently the Carmel Girls Swim Team won their 29th consecutive state title. It is the longest win streak by any high school team in the nation. The second best streak was 27 wins by a Hawaiian High School swim team. This was also Carmel’s 6th national swim title in 7 years. Not only do they dominate the state of Indiana, they have dominated the entire United States since 2008.In this years state meet, they won 9 of 11 events including all 3 relays. In doing so, they set 3 national records. They achieved the highest point total ever recorded in an Indiana State swim meet with 445 points. This was a 266 point win margin over runner up Fisher’s High School.The only high school swim program that can probably challenge Carmel is the St. Xavier Boys swim team of Cincinnati. This team, however, has never had this kind of win margin over a state runner up. Congratulations, Greyhounds.
