MADISON, Wis. (05/14/2013) – CUNA will host back-to-back member business lending events for a full week in late July of this year. Taking place in Madison, WI, CUNA Business Lending & Services Conference runs July 19-20, and CUNA Business Lending Certification Institute runs July 21-25. The events offer the information and insight to take a credit union from “curious” about member business lending to knowing all the steps and details of program implementation.

“Together, these programs make for an impactful week for credit unions looking to serve their members’ small businesses needs,” commented Courtney Cantwell, Instructional Design Manager at CUNA. “The Lending Conference and Certification Institute position credit unions to provide the people-first services that members look for in a financial institution.”

The first program, CUNA Business Lending & Services Conference, offers credit union executives and decision makers a chance to determine whether offering member business services is the right decision for their credit unions. Through an overview of the market, advice from experts and experienced credit unions and an analysis of the current competition, attendees will leave this conference with a solid picture of what a member business services program would look like at their credit union.

The second, CUNA Business Lending Certification Institute, offers a credit union-specific, week-long curriculum designed by industry experts to increase attendees’ business lending potential. The institute features precise and pertinent core knowledge, case study analysis in teams and on-site solution building for credit unions’ business lending. Expert-led sessions addressing real-life business scenarios leave attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the components involved in lending services.
