FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison, Wis. (June 10, 2015) – CUNA is proud to announce that 63 credit union professionals earned their Credit Union Enterprise Risk Management Expert (CUERME) designation at this April’s CUNA Enterprise Risk Management Certification Institute.
“I appreciated not only the instruction, but the opportunity to role-play practical applications and talk about actual scenarios of implementing and sustaining an ERM program – and having some fun while we were at it,” said Mishel Kaufman, SVP of risk management at Redwood CU. “It was refreshing to be with other risk management professionals who speak my language.”
Built in partnership with ERM consultants from The Rochdale Group, the CUNA Enterprise Risk Management Certification Institute provides attendees with an understanding of today’s risk environment, processes for identifying and assessing all types of risks, techniques for defining risk appetite and using the ERM program as a strategic tool to improve performance at their credit unions.
“To drive your credit union’s vision forward, you need to be able to calculate and analyze when risk is an opportunity,” says Tony Ferris, managing partner at The Rochdale Group. “Incorporating enterprise risk management into your strategic planning process allows you to make more proactive and risk-informed decisions – improving the chances of meeting financial and operational goals.”
The next institute will be held in December 7-9 in Las Vegas. Attendees will learn:
· The fundamentals of risk management
· Common risk management traps
· The relationship between ERM and strategic planning
· The process of ERM integration with other risk functions
· How to take ERM back to their credit unions
To date, 400 individuals have earned the Credit Union Enterprise Risk Management Expert (CUERME) designation.
