Attendees must have previously completed the CUNA Volunteer Certification Program and currently hold the Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation to be eligible to attend this program. If you do not have your CCUV, you can earn it by attending CUNA Volunteer Certification School or by completing the self-study option.
You did some difficult work in achieving your Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation - five days of classes with testing each day, or months of self-study - but it doesn't end there. The credit union industry is changing rapidly and volunteers must actively keep up with their education and cutting edge trends to maintain the movement. The update program allows you to reconvene with fellow CCUVs, renew your certification, take your training to the next step, upgrade your skills with industry professionals and experts and help shape the credit union movement. This program is exclusive to those currently holding the Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation.
The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT®) has evaluated eight of CUNA designations. For more information, visit the ACE CREDIT website at www.acenet.edu/credit.

Sometimes we need to go back to the beginning to gain the proper insight into a difficult situation. The existence of a voluntary Board of Directors, elected from among the membership, is one of the most essential elements of the credit union movement. But the time-honored tradition of service to the credit union is getting tougher all the time, and it is never the correct answer to say, “this is the way we have always done it.” Today's Boards are faced with increasing pressure to stay informed of the complex regulatory and business realities of the modern financial services marketplace. Recent credit union failures and continued industry consolidation highlight the increased expectations for your Board. As an added bonus, there is always a risk that someone will attempt to hold you liable for actions you take on behalf of the credit union. This session will examine the foundations of volunteer service with an emphasis on sound governance concepts, risk management and avoiding liability and how to best balance all three.
The term “cyber security” has received a lot of recent media attention, but the bottom line remains that we need to keep our members' data confidential. Data security has always been a Credit Union concern because we have a regulatory requirement for security and we value our members' privacy. However, the increase of identity theft and the increasing criminal focus on stealing data has elevated the issue. With the growing reliance on the electronic delivery of services, we have the added element of cyber security, which is simply protecting our member's data and money in the internet. Unfortunately, the threats to our security come from every conceivable direction; foreign governments, terrorists, criminals, bad members and even our staff. This session will explore the current state of credit union security requirements and offer best practices for obtaining and maintaining security in the digital age.

In today's regulatory environment, there are so many rules and laws to keep up with! It feels almost impossible for credit union Board members, volunteers and management to stay on top - let alone ahead of the examiners and auditors. Throw a new administration in the mix, and it can seem like mass chaos. In this session, CUNA's Chief Compliance Officer will discuss the top regulatory areas of focus for 2018, and provide details regarding supervisory expectations as well as tips and tools that credit unions can use to manage the regulatory burden. Come listen and learn how to stay afloat in the world of regulations, while still providing excellent service to your credit union's members.

Enjoy an opportunity to give back to the community, as we partner with RMJ Foundation and California Coast Credit Union to give the students at Clairemont High School a “Bite of Reality.” Bite of Reality is an engaging, hands-on simulation that will teach teens how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. In addition, we'll pay a visit to California Coast Credit Union to learn about some of the unique things their credit union is working on!
This is probably the most important school to prepare a board member with credit union education necessary to fulfill the responsibilities to serve as a director.
