CUNA/NCBA Sign Training Licensing Agreement

July 12, 2010

Customized professional development training soon will be available to members of the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA). The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has signed a formal licensing agreement with NCBA—the leading national U.S. membership association representing cooperatives—to provide the training.

“This partnership gives CUNA and NCBA the opportunity, through education, to demonstrate the power of the cooperative community working together,” says Bill Cheney, CUNA president.

NCBA’s membership includes all types of cooperatives across all industries—consumer, producer, shared services, and worker-owned co-ops.

“NCBA is delighted to be partnering with CUNA by offering this training,” says Paul Hazen, NCBA president/CEO. This agreement allows cooperatives without access to professional educational content to further educate their volunteers with the programs CUNA has developed.”
