FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison, Wis. (October 30, 2015) – CUNA Strategic Services will host an intensive, educational program for vendors looking to deepen their understanding of credit unions and how best to serve them. The program, CUNA CORE, will be held May 24-25, 2016 in Madison, Wis.
“Understanding credit unions can be a daunting task,” says Julie Esser, VP Alliance Development of CUNA Strategic Services. “By educating vendors on how to navigate the marketplace, they will be able to create more value and grow their businesses; and credit unions will gain access to better products and services.

One of the biggest barriers vendors continue to face when trying to establish themselves in the credit union industry is its unique culture, which is very different from that of other financial institutions. CUNA CORE allows attendees to lower the learning curve by diving into the credit union movement’s core values.
