CUNA will host a new event, CUNA Governance, Risk Management & Compliance (GRC) Institute, Oct. 2-4, in Denver. Created in partnership with Rochdale Paragon Group, the institute offers a credit union-specific education in GRC, a popular business philosophy that integrates and unifies governance, risk management and compliance.
“The team at Rochdale Paragon has a demonstrated expertise in all three pillars of GRC and the way they interact with one another that attendees will deeply benefit from,” said Todd Spiczenski, CUNA chief products and services officer. “Credit union professionals will leave this event with the tools they need to get integrated, get unified and, above all, get results.”
Representatives from Rochdale Paragon along with experts from both inside and outside the credit union system will lead the three-day program. During in-depth sessions, attendees will learn the core ideas of GRC, identify each department’s role in it and gain a roadmap for implementing it at their credit unions. The program is best-suited for executives, volunteers, auditors, supervisory committee members, and risk and compliance professionals.
“Partnering with CUNA on this event is a chance for us to awaken more credit unions to a framework that will legitimately transform the way they operate,” said Tony Ferris, leading financial services strategist and CEO at Rochdale Paragon. “Don’t let the title scare you; if you govern, manage or audit a financial institution, this program is for you.”
