CUNA's certified fin. counselors now number 2,175
MADISON, Wis. (7/24/14)--With nine recent program completions, the Credit Union National Association now counts 2,175 credit union professionals as certified credit union financial counselors (CCUFC).
 
CCUFC-designated professionals help counsel members through current and future financial situations.
 
"The training provides great skills whether you are a loan officer or a counselor," said new designee Jamie Fatheree, American Airlines FCU, Fort Worth, Texas, with $5.6 billion in assets. "Even if you have been counseling for a while, you learn things you didn't know or hadn't thought of before. The program gave me a network of other counselors to bounce ideas off of and share what works."
 
Fatheree received her designation for completing the second part of the program at CUNA's Certified Financial Counselor School in June.
 
Other CCUFC designees are:
  • Ariane Aughenbaugh, Franklin-Oil Region CU, Oil City, Pa., with $35 million in assets;
  • Janine Bethel, Grand Bahama Co-op Credit Union Ltd., Freeport, Bahamas;
  • Michelle Bryant, Blue Eagle CU, Roanoke, Va., with $126 million in assets;
  • Kimberly Gaines, Pelican State CU, Baton Rouge, La., with $234 million in assets;
  • Sandra Gladney, American Airlines FCU;
  • Crystal Jepsen, North Star Community CU, Cherokee, Iowa, with $79 million in assets;
  • Heather Smith, Credit Union One, North Jackson, Ohio, with $10 million in assets; and
  • Cheryl Welles, Empower FCU, Syracuse, N.Y., with $1.2 billion in assets.
In addition to the on-site school, the CCUFC designation can also be earned by successfully completing parts one and two through the CUNA Certified Financial Counselor eSchool or CUNA Financial Counseling Certification Program.
