Get the Edge On Leadership

Across the credit union movement, there’s a need for less reactive and more forward-thinking guidance.

The new CUNA Leadership Institute, Nov. 3-8 in San Diego, will introduce attendees to innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to leadership development.

The institute’s comprehensive curriculum is specific to the needs and challenges of credit unions.

Rather than simply going through the motions and reciting nuts-and-bolts details, attendees will be challenged to rethink what it takes to oversee an organization while discovering inspiration for their own leadership style.

To learn more, visit, and save $200 when you register for the institute by Sept. 3.

School Offers Hands-On Financial Management Experience

As a credit union financial manager or CFO, each financial decision you make is critical. You can’t always test the results or change direction if things go wrong.

Join us Aug. 11-15 in San Francisco for CUNA Financial Management School, where you’ll have the opportunity to manage a credit union’s finances first-hand without the risks involved in making reallife, complex financial decisions.

The school is comprised of three parts—offering experience, theory, and advice.

In part one, attendees obtain hands-on experience working with a team through the financial scenarios provided by the asset-liability management simulation.

The financial theories discussed in part two move beyond the introductory stages and touch on high-level decision making such as strategic financial forecasting for long-term growth.

Part three offers the opportunity to work through issues specific to your own credit union in productive discussions with a supportive group of educated peers and industry experts.
