NEW YORK (5/30/14)--The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is accepting applications for the second year of its Cooperative Finance Leaders for America (CFLA) program.
The program recruits, trains and supports 15 new and emerging credit union leaders who provide credit and safe banking services to low- and moderate-income communities.
During the six-month paid fellowship, the CFLA participants will go through an intensive training program that includes a weeklong summer institute in New York City in August.
The federation encourages credit unions to recruit candidates. Both the credit union and the candidate must submit completed applications by July 2.
Fellowships are expected to begin in September and continue through February.
