Southwest CUNA Management School graduates 41 execs
DALLAS (7/23/10)--Forty-one credit union executives--33 of them from Texas--graduated yesterday from Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) in Fort Worth, Texas. Graduates also represented Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana, Kansas and Arkansas. CMS is a three-year course of study accredited by the Credit Union National Association and recognized or innovative, intense, hands-on professional development, said the Texas Credit Union League. The program offers courses designed to challenge, broaden financial industry knowledge, and sharpen management skills. Tim Reibe, collections supervisor with Citizens FCU in Big Spring, Texas, said the opportunity to learn from and share experiences with an elite team of instructors and peers has expanded his level of awareness and knowledge of the credit union industry. “SCMS has made me a well-rounded manager and exposed me to a collective group of dedicated and resourceful professionals whom I consider to be experts in their field,” Reibe added. Dick Ensweiler, SCMS oversight committee member and president/CEO of the Texas league, noted that "the class of 2010 has shown tremendous discipline and dedication. During their three years in the program, they’ve demonstrated their ability to face challenges and overcome obstacles." SCMS is held at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. Classes are led by university/college faculty, credit union industry leaders, and professional consultants. To graduate, students must develop a real-world strategic business plan for their own credit union.
