Federation Launches Co-op Fellowship For CUs
NEW YORK (5/9/13)--The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is launching a pilot program to cultivate future leaders for the credit union movement. Completed applications for both the fellows and participating credit unions are due May 29.

The Cooperative Finance Leaders for America (CFLA) will recruit, train and support 15 professionals for leadership positions in credit unions dedicated to providing credit and safe financial services to low- and moderate-income communities. 

Participating credit unions will gain a source of staff drawn from recent college graduates, graduate students, returning veterans and displaced financial workers, the federation said. The  paid fellowship is for six months.

The CFLA's training program will include a two-week summer institute (one week in person and one week online) in August and ongoing support throughout the fellowship.

Also, CFLA alumni will receive long-term support, aimed at their becoming the next generation of credit union CEOs and leaders. All fellowships will begin in September and continue through February.
