MADISON, Wis. (4/11/12)--Registration and school information is now available for the 2012 CUNA Supervisory Committee & Internal Audit Conference, Dec.2-5 in Las Vegas, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) announced.

The CUNA Supervisory Committee & Internal Audit Conference provides supervisory committee members and internal auditors with information to keep pace with today's regulatory changes. Attendees will gain insight into the topics and issues specific to their supervisory and internal audit duties, and connect with supervisory committee peers from the credit union movement.

"The CUNA Supervisory Committee & Internal Audit Conference places oversight issues at the top of its agenda and gives these topics the dedicated attention that they require," said Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer education.

The conference focuses on supervisory committee issues. "By pinpointing the typical concerns that committee members encounter, this school not only helps volunteers feel more secure in their role at their local credit union, it helps ensure that every credit union is protected by at least one expert overseer," Smith said.

Supervisory committee members and internal auditors working toward their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation can earn credits by attending the designated breakout sessions at the 2012 CUNA Supervisory Committee & Internal Audit Conference and successfully completing the optional exams.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (4/11/12)--The Minnesota Credit Union Network's (MnCUN's) Network Service Corp. has partnered with Lutheran Social Services Financial Counseling Service (LSS) to help credit union members learn financial skills.

Through the new relationship, Minnesota credit unions can offer members access to financial counseling.

LSS financial counselors are certified in both credit and housing counseling and specialize in helping individuals avoid bankruptcy, foreclosure and debt settlement scams. Through LSS, credit unions can offer members education on how to develop money management skills, and guidance on reading a credit report, budget and debt counseling, debt management planning, and foreclosure prevention counseling.

"The services offered through LSS help to further differentiate credit unions as the smarter financial alternative," said John Ferstl, MnCUN vice president, Network Service Corp. "LSS has combined social responsibility with the need to minimize losses in order to develop financial services that are mutually beneficial for both credit unions and members."
