CUNA will conduct two training programs for young credit union professionals in September, building off the successful program CUNA hosted last year. Registration is open now for the all-day programs, scheduled for Sept. 10 and Sept. 24 at Credit Union House.
“Young professionals are the future of the credit union movement and we need to stress the importance of advocacy now. The success we saw last year with the program inspired us to expand this year’s offering, and we look forward to welcoming young credit union professionals,” said Richard Gose, CUNA chief political officer. “The program is designed to teach attendees the benefits of advocacy, how to build strong relationships with their members of Congress, and best practices in district and Hill meetings.”
The program will include outside speakers, a panel discussion with congressional staffers and updates from CUNA and League personnel. Topics covered will include an overview of CUNA’s political program, the role credit union professionals play in advocacy, hill visit preparation and networking opportunities.
