The second annual CUNA Emerging Leader Institute will be held Dec. 3-5, in Austin, Texas. New and experienced leaders will gather to network and gain fundamental insights into credit union leadership.
“When stepping into your first leadership role, it’s important to have a sense of what your strengths and weaknesses are and learn how to leverage both effectively,” said Kristin Ryan, CUNA director of learning events. “At this event, young and emerging leaders can build a strong foundation of leadership knowledge, preparing them for upcoming challenges and helping them select an effective leadership style, while experienced leaders can refresh and renew their knowledge in a changing workplace environment.”
The three-day course consists of two leadership assessments to identify key strengths and weaknesses, discussions to become familiar with the common challenges of leadership and leadership knowledge courses to help attendees lead their teams, influence others and build strong relationships.
The institute also features the CUNA Emerging Leader Award. Endorsed by the CUNA Young Professionals Committee, the award honors an exceptional credit union employee who consistently demonstrates leadership and passion in furthering the “people helping people” philosophy in the credit union movement. The recipient of this award will receive a complimentary registration to CUNA Emerging Leader Institute and a three-night hotel stay at the Hilton.
