MADISON, Wis. (7/16/14)--The CUNA Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Certification Institute, hosted in collaboration with The Rochdale Group Inc., will be held Dec. 8-11 in Las Vegas, the Credit Union National Association announced Tuesday.
"Enterprise risk management continues to be a major area of strategic focus for credit unions," said Todd Spiczenski, CUNA senior vice president of association services. "We've added a second ERM Institute this year to meet the demand for training on the topic. The Rochdale team's approach to risk will have an even greater impact on the future of the movement as we see fewer credit unions turning to risk management as a survival mechanism and more looking to ERM's role in their ongoing growth."
Made possible by collaboration, CUNA Enterprise Risk Management Certification Institute leverages the reach of CUNA with the ERM expertise of The Rochdale Group Inc. to provide credit union executives with risk-management knowledge and the tools to incorporate ERM at their credit unions. Through the insights and advice of Rochdale's ERM consultants, attendees leave with an understanding of their own risk appetite, risk beyond investments and how risk management can drive decision-making at their credit union.
At this year's May institute, 81 individuals earned their Credit Union Enterprise Risk Management Expert (CUERME) certifications. Attendees of the December institute will also have the opportunity to be officially certified as credit union ERM experts through the CUERME designation.
