Registration is now open for the first Credit Union Development Education (DE) training of 2017, which takes place April 26-May 3, Madison, Wis.
Attendees of the National Credit Union Foundation’s six-day total immersion experience will learn critical lessons in cooperative principles, credit union philosophy and international development issues while incorporating challenges credit unions face today.
This is the second consecutive year that the Foundation will hold four DE trainings due to increased demand. After the April training, subsequent trainings will be held in June, September and November. All four trainings are to be held at the Lowell Center, which is part of the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis.
Registration for each training is limited to 48 attendees. The registration fee includes seven nights of single-room lodging, as well as all training materials and meals. Scholarship information is included on the registration page as many state credit union foundations and leagues offer scholarships to DE training, in addition to the national DE scholarship offered.
DE training is open to everyone from new employees who need a credit union orientation to seasoned executives who need to recharge. Participants cite many benefits of attending DE training:
