MADISON, Wis. (10/19/12)--Registration has opened for the Spring 2013 Credit Union Development Education (DE) training class taking place May 1-8 in Madison, Wis.
Attendees of the six-day total immersion experience will learn about credit unions' social responsibility and domestic and international development through interactive education and professional networking.
DE training is open to everyone from new employees who need a credit union orientation to seasoned executives who need to recharge. Participants cite these benefits of attending DE training:
- Graduates acquire skills in credit union outreach initiatives, problem solving, technical assistance, team building and public presentations.
- Graduates earn certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs). They join a networking group of more than 1,000 graduates in America and over 30 other countries.
- CUDEs realize that local issues are indeed global--and that global issues are local.
- CUDEs understand that credit unions grow stronger by working cooperatively.
CUDEs return to their jobs with new understanding of how to promote cooperative principles and credit union values as distinct advantages in today's competitive financial services marketplace.
The training will take place at The Lowell Center, part of the University of Wisconsin–Extension in Madison, Wis.,. and on the UW-Madison campus. The registration fee includes seven nights of single-room lodging, all training materials and meals.
"Registration is limited to just 42 attendees, so the sooner individuals register for DE training the better," said Lois Kitsch, national program director at the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).
