DEs re-enact Estes Park photo of 1934
BOULDER, Colo. (6/19/09)--A group of Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) met in Boulder, Colo., last week for its annual development educators (DEs) workshop and traveled to Estes Park to re-enact a historic photo of a group that met there to create the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) in 1934.

In 1934, roughly 52 delegates representing 20 states and the District of Columbia gathered to form the Credit Union National Extension Bureau--the predecessor of CUNA. This year is CUNA’s 75th anniversary. The famous photograph of the delegates and their families was taken by Fred Clatworthy Jr. The 20 DEs last week re-enacted the Clatworthy photo to pay tribute to the early pioneers of the credit union movement, and to re-dedicate CUDES to the same spirit, passion and vision of CUNA’s founders. While in Estes Park, the DE group sang a song that delegates 75 years ago sang after completing the by-laws of CUNA. The song and photo re-enactment was documented in a short video created by the group and posted to YouTube. To view it, use the link. Attendees of the workshop also discussed cooperative social responsibility to credit union sustainability. Presenters included Pat Sterner, JFB & Associates; George Hofheimer, the Filene Institute; Dennis Paul, Elevations CU, Boulder; and Mary Roosevelt, Thistle Community Housing.
