CU System
Registration opens for CU Development Education
MADISON, Wis. (2/21/08)--Registration is open through March 17 for the first 2008’s two Credit Union Development Education (DE) classes--to be held April 3-9 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “DE training is open to everyone from new employees and volunteers who need a credit union orientation, to seasoned executives who need to recharge,” said Tom Decker, program director. “The interactive six-day class focuses on cooperative principles, social impact, and credit union uniqueness as a competitive advantage.” Graduates have cited many personal benefits, such as:
* Trainees acquiring skills in public presentations, credit union outreach initiatives, problem solving and technical assistance; * Graduates earning certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs), a networking group of 434 active volunteers nationwide and in 10 other countries; and * Graduates returning to their jobs with a new understanding that local issues may be global, and that credit unions can improve the lives of people everywhere by working cooperatively.
“The DE program is worthwhile to become involved in, regardless of how long you’ve been in the credit union movement,” said Mary Cunningham, president/CEO of USA FCU, San Diego, and a graduate of the DE Class of 1997. “Even after many years of loving credit unions, I was forced to step outside of my comfort zone and explore a whole new world of cooperatives. Through doing so, I’m re-committed to be sure I never compromise the credit union ideals in my organization.” Credit union and cooperative leaders with questions about Development Education can call Decker at 800-356-9655, ext. 4374, or e-mail tdecker@ncuf.coop or kroosmalen@ncuf.coop. The National Credit Union Foundation is the primary sponsor of the DE program. Support is provided by the World Council of Credit Unions, the Credit Union National Association, CUNA Mutual Group, and state credit union leagues and foundations.
