MADISON, Wis. (11/13/15)--CUNA announced this week that next year’s CUNA Management School will be held July 10-22 in Madison, Wis.
The school prepares participants for leadership roles in the credit union movement. Next year will mark its 60th year running.
“My biggest takeaway from CUNA Management School was the relationships I formed with others in the credit union industry,” said Brett Rinker, president/CEO, Thrive FCU, Muncie, Ind. “I will never have all the answers, but I find that many times I can contact former classmates and find the help I need to solve a problem.”
CUNA Management School is a three-year program that offers a curriculum of traditional classes and experiential learning through the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Business. Subjects range from general leadership to specific departmental issues. The program culminates with a research project through which participants map out the future of their credit unions.
“CUNA Management School is one of our organization’s most venerated programs,” said Meghann Dawson, CUNA director of learning events. “Over the course of its six decades of designees, the school has enabled more than 5,000 students to strengthen their executive skills and become stronger, more versatile credit union leaders.”
The school also offers an opportunity to earn the Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE) designation.
This year, the school awarded 81 CCUE designations, adding to the more than 3,300 designees nationwide.
