NEW YORK (6/25/13)--The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions has extended the application deadline for its Cooperative Finance Leaders for America to July 1.
Cooperative Finance Leaders for America (CFLA): Developing the Future of Credit Unions is an initiative to recruit, train and support 15 new and emerging professionals to be placed in leadership positions in credit unions providing credit and safe banking services to low- and moderate-income communities.
Participating credit unions will gain a source of staff, drawn from recent college graduates, graduate students, returning veterans and displaced financial workers, the federation said. The paid fellowship is for six months.
The CFLA's training program will include a two-week summer institute--one week in person and one week online--in August and ongoing support throughout the fellowship.
Also, CFLA alumni will receive long-term support, toward becoming the next generation of credit union CEOs and leaders. Fellowships will begin in September and continue through February.
