BISMARCK, N.D. (6/26/14)--The dates are set for the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas' (CUAD) Staff Member Awareness and Response Training program (SMART), which aims to embolden and amplify the credit union movement in North Dakota and South Dakota.
"This important and necessary program is free and open to our members," CUAD Executive Vice President of Government Relations Jeff Olson said in Wednesday's The Memo. "Participation in this program is highly encouraged and recommended."
Organized by CUAD leadership, the free workshops will train credit union professionals to articulate and relay the credit union message to staff, volunteers, members, lawmakers and community leaders.
Then, those who complete the SMART program will have the ability to turn around and train other credit union employees on how to help promote the member activation program, and the credit union message in general, within each credit union (News Now April 29).
The program is also part of the league's overarching Taxation Awareness and Response Strategy.
Credit union vice presidents, human resources professionals, trainers, leaders, managers and volunteers are welcome to attend.
The workshops last two to three hours and include lunch and refreshments.
