MADISON, Wis. (6/11/13)--Only a few spots remain for the Fall 2013 Credit Union Development Education (DE) training class taking place Sept. 4-11 in Madison, Wis.
Attendees of the National Credit Union Foundation's six-day total immersion experience will learn about credit unions' social responsibility and domestic and international development through interactive education and professional networking.
"Registration for the training is limited to just 42 attendees, so this is the last chance for a few credit union professionals who would like to attend training this year," said Lois Kitsch, NCUF's national program director. "You won't want to miss it as DE Training is one of the most unique and transformative credit union training events offered."
DE training is open to everyone from new employees who need a credit union orientation, to seasoned executives who need to recharge. Participants cite many benefits of attending DE training:
Graduates acquire skills in credit union outreach initiatives, problem solving, technical assistance, team building and public presentations.
Graduates earn certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs). They join a networking group including more than 1,000 graduates nationwide and more than 30 other countries.
CUDEs realize that local issues are indeed global--and that global issues are local.
CUDEs understand that credit unions grow stronger by working cooperatively.
CUDEs return to their jobs with a new understanding of how to promote cooperative principles and credit union values as distinct advantages in today's competitive financial services marketplace.
The training will take place Sept. 4-11 at The Lowell Center on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis. The registration fee includes seven nights of single-room lodging, and all training materials and meals.
"For those looking for help with funding, many state credit union foundations and leagues offer scholarships to DE training in addition to the national DE Scholarship offered," Kitsch said.
