ALEXANDRIA, Va. (11/26/12)--The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) last week reminded credit unions that the nomination deadline for its Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) Consulting Program is approaching.
Nominations for the first 2013 round of the program must be received by Friday, the NCUA said.
OSCUI Director William Myers said the program has much to offer eligible credit unions. "Those that participated in the first round earlier this year received a great deal of value, and we're hopeful more credit unions will take advantage of the opportunity," he added.
Through the consulting program, OSCUI offers budgeting, marketing, policy development and strategic planning assistance. The experienced economic development specialists that offer this assistance also help credit unions tackle other examination issues.
Credit unions with less than $10 million in total assets, charters that have been approved within the past 10 years, or low-income designations may apply for the consulting program.
More than 200 credit unions took part in the program's most recent round. For more information and a nomination form, use the resource link.
