MADISON, Wis. (9/9/14)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) announced this week that registration is open for two Credit Union Development Education trainings slated for next year. Registration for a third training in 2015 will open early next year.
Attendees of the six-day training will learn about credit unions' social responsibility and about international development through interactive education and professional networking, according to the NCUF.
The first training will take place Jan. 14-21 in Dallas at the American Airlines Training and Conference Center, and the second two will be held in Madison, Wis., April 29-May 6 and Sept. 9-16 at The Lowell Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison's campus.
This will mark the second year that the NCUF will host three trainings in one year.
"DE training was hands-down the most educational, inspirational and emotional training or conference I've ever been fortunate enough to be a part of," said Michael Waylett, president/CEO of Vision Financial FCU, Durham, N.C., with $46 million in assets. "I learned of the principles on which credit unions were founded and how these principles should remain at the heart of every decision that we make today.
"It is not possible to attend this training and not, as a human being, be changed significantly."
The Development Education training is open to anyone from new employees who need credit union orientation to veteran executives who need to recharge, the foundation said.
The registration fee for the training covers the cost of seven nights of single-room lodging, training materials and meals. Information on scholarships, offered by many credit union foundations and leagues, can be found on the foundation's registration page.
