“Credit union philosophy is our most important asset,” McMorris said in his first address to Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) during the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. “I not only pledge the foundation’s support, I pledge my personal support. I promise you I will become a CUDE before the end of my term as foundation chair,” he added. DE Program Director Tom Decker highlighted several new initiatives planned for this year:
* 2008 DE Workshop. All DE training alumni are invited to a new learning event to be held May 21-24 in Seattle. The workshop will feature tours of the Biz Kid$ set while an episode is being filmed for PBS; tours of IslandWood, where a sustainable environmental is the classroom; and a course on micro-finance from international facilitator Carol Schillios; * International DE Council. DE program leaders from Australia, Canada, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and the U.S. plan to facilitate curriculum enhancements and training exchanges; and * International Development Certification. NCUF and the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) are exploring ideas to recognize leaders who graduate both from DE training and from international programs offered by WOCCU.
