January 7, 2019

With so many regulatory changes and evolving best practices, top-notch credit union lending requires comprehensive understanding in a broad range of topics. Lending professionals need accurate, up-to-date information, not just on individual topics, but on the full picture of the lending environment.

That’s where CUNA Consumer & Residential Mortgage Lending School comes in. Here, you can receive full-spectrum knowledge on the current lending landscape and position yourself to stay informed far into the future.

Of course, the proof is in the details. For anyone who needs convincing, here are three of the biggest reasons to attend CUNA Consumer & Residential Mortgage Lending School this April.

Your learning, your choices

Your credit union and members have specific lending needs that can’t always be fit into a strict category or curriculum. Over the course of your four days at CUNA Consumer & Residential Mortgage Lending School, you’ll have free reign to choose from over 30 sessions to attend.

The choices you make will determine the focused strategies and insights you bring back to your credit union, but every attendee will also receive a broad overview of major lending hot topics. You’ll receive the specific information most relevant to your credit union, as well as the essential updates every lending professional should be aware of.

Dynamic, engaging sessions

Your education can only be as good as your teachers, which is why CUNA pulls out all the stops to ensure we bring in only the best speakers and advisors. With a diverse range of skills, knowledge and experience, there’ll always be an expert on-site with the answers to your questions.

This year’s speakers include attorneys, compliance officers, consultants and trainers, including acclaimed leadership speaker Neen James and CUNA’s own chief compliance officer, Jared Ihrig.

Stay connected year-round

In addition to our presenters, some of the most valuable resources for information are the peers you’ll meet when attending this school. There’s nothing quite as reassuring as hearing from your fellow lending professionals that they share your concerns, and many of them will. By staying in touch after the school comes to a close, you’ll all share a robust network of support that you can consult whenever the need arises.

Whatever development may be on your credit union’s horizon, a sturdy base of lending knowledge can be a deciding factor in ensuring your future success. By giving yourself the training you deserve, you’re investing in the future of both yourself and your credit union.

For the smart choice in your lending education, you can’t go wrong with CUNA Consumer & Residential Mortgage Lending School, this April 15-18 in Las Vegas.
