MADISON, Wis. (1/27/16)--Nearly four-dozen credit union professionals (46) earned their Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE) designations last week after completing the National Credit Union Foundation’s weeklong training program.
The Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training program, this time around held in Dallas, imbues in participants critical lessons in cooperative principles, the credit union philosophy, and international development issues.
The program features group exercises, field trips, discussions with speakers from throughout the credit union system and a team project that requires participants to propose solutions to problems credit unions grapple with every day.
This class of CUDEs tackled the following issues for their final projects:
“DE training reignited my devotion to the credit union philosophy and profoundly impacted me on a personal level,” said Jim Ladner, chief financial officer at Resource One CU, Dallas. “I would highly recommend DE Training to credit union managers, executives, directors, and yes, even skeptical CFOs. I promise, DE Training will change your life.”
The foundation also has scheduled an additional 2016 DE Training program for this year in November. The session will take place Nov. 2-9 in Madison, Wis. Registrations will open in the spring.
