CUNA signs licensing agreement with NCBA
MADISON, Wis. (7/14/10)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has signed a formal licensing agreement with the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA), the national U.S. membership association representing cooperatives, to provide customized professional development training to its members. “This partnership gives CUNA and the NCBA the opportunity, through education, to demonstrate the power of the cooperative community working together,” said Bill Cheney, CUNA president/CEO. “Together,

we are making key components available to a wider swath of the leadership of the cooperative community--which strengthens both of our organizations and the cooperative movement generally.” Through its comprehensive education, co-op development, communications, public policy, and member services programs, NCBA helps co-ops strengthen their businesses so they can better serve their members, and provides a unified voice on Capitol Hill. Dedicated to both domestic and international cooperative development, NCBA works to develop co-ops in the U.S. and abroad. NCBA’s membership includes all types of cooperatives across all industries--consumer, producer, shared services and worker-owned co-ops, NCBA and CUNA said in a joint release. “This agreement allows cooperatives without access to professional educational content to further educate their volunteers with the programs CUNA has developed,” said Paul Hazen, president/CEO of NCBA. “This joint effort will reinforce the service value the NCBA brings to our membership.”
