The next session of CUNA Business Lending Certification School, which focuses on commercial and member business lending (MBL) programs, will be July 24-27 in Madison, Wis.
Presented in partnership with the Professional and Executive Development of the Wisconsin School of Business, University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Small Business Development Center, the program also qualifies attendees to earn the Credit Union Business Lending Professional (CUBLP) designation.
“This is a great experience for anyone who works with member business loans, regardless of their experience,” said Mark Volz, past attendee and business lending account executive, Guardian CU, Milwaukee. “It’s also a great networking opportunity. You get to meet your peers and see how everyone else does their MBL process.”
Over the course of 3 years, CUNA Business Lending Certification School addresses concepts and procedures inherent to credit union commercial and business lending, including regulations, business analysis and portfolio management. After completion, attendees can test for the CUBLP designation.
Instructors include Dana Sumner and Joe Hyatt of Development Finance Training & Consulting, Inc.; financial consultant Mark Taber; and lending trainer Vin DiCara.
On July 23, the school will host “Introduction to the Credit Analysis Process,” a pre-conference workshop that focuses on analyzing loan applicants’ financial information to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their business.
