Interactive program unites philosophy business
MADISON, Wis. (5/2/12)--The National Credit Union Foundation and the Missouri Credit Union Association have partnered to offer a new program to teach the credit union difference.

The Credit Union Learning Map is in an interactive program consisting of three sessions that take participants through the history and structure of credit unions and concludes with a call to action.

The sessions, ranging from two hours to a full-day, include:

  • Interactive Learning Map. This session provides an overview of credit union history and philosophy. Groups will engage in discussions about the credit union difference and how it acts as a competitive advantage in the marketplace. (About two hours)
  • Planning Session & Interactive Learning Map.  This session offers a further exploration of credit union history and philosophy and a search for treasures that create a strong foundation for the future course of action. It will provide an understanding of the past and a direction for the future, with goals and objectives for next year's journey. (Half or full day)
  • Philosophy is Good Business:  Staff Development. This session provides professional development and teambuilding exercises. Using the interactive Learning Map, participants will unearth the industry's history and philosophy. While working in groups, participants will discover how philosophy is good business. (Full day) 
"The Learning Map  is valuable for all credit union board members, leadership teams and staff to participate in," says Gary Oakland, president/CEO of Seattle-based BECU. "Our credit union board [members] saw this training as an effective use of their time as they discussed consumer trends and how our actions align with credit union cooperative operating principles. I'm confident our board members will continue to reflect on this exercise during future planning sessions as they determine our strategy and actions."
