Few Spots Left for NCUF’s CU Philosophy Training September 10-17

Madison, Wis. – There are now only a few spots left for credit union professionals as registration winds down for the Fall 2014 Credit Union Development Education (DE) training class taking place September 10-17 in Madison, Wis. Attendees of the National Credit Union Foundation’s (NCUF) six-day total immersion experience will learn about credit unions’ social responsibility and domestic and international development through interactive education and professional networking.

“Registration for the training is limited to just 42 attendees, so this is the last chance for a few credit union professionals who would like to attend training this year,” said Christopher Morris, NCUF Director of Communications. “You won’t want to miss it as DE Training is one of the most transformative and unique credit union training events offered.”

After attending the most recent training in April, Brandon Walker, Government Affairs Specialist and Credit Union House Manager for the Cornerstone Credit Union League in Oklahoma City, Okla., said, “The passion of all my DE Training classmates and the training material itself really ignited my flame for the credit union movement. I know now this is my calling and where I belong. DE changed my life!” (View more testimonials here)

Who Should Attend DE Training – And Why

DE training is open to everyone from new employees who need a credit union orientation to seasoned executives who need to recharge.  Participants cite many 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 including over 1,100 graduates across 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 a new understanding of how to promote cooperative principles and credit union values as distinct advantages in today’s competitive financial services marketplace.

DE Training Location & Registration– Room & Meals Included

The training will take place from September 10-17 at The Lowell Center, which is part of the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis. The registration fee includes seven nights of single-room lodging, as well as all training materials and meals.

Registration and more information can be found on the NCUF website by clicking the “Register for the September 2014 DE Training” button on the homepage or anywhere on the website under “Foundation Programs>Development Education>Register for the September 2014 DE Training” at the top of every page.
