Training Links People, Passion, and Proficiency

Management, staff, and volunteers will find opportunities for training and participation in this lineup of current CUNA offerings.

September 1, 2012

These days, members have high expectations for their financial services experience. And credit unions need a well-trained staff to prevent potential gaps in service.

While training is an important tool for maintaining and building on excellent member service, professional development opportunities also help retain key employees and integrate new ones.

Management, staff, and volunteers will find opportunities for training and participation in this lineup of current CUNA offerings.
