Registration now open for Spring 2021 DE trainings

January 12, 2021

Registration is now open for two DE Training classes this spring hosted by the National Credit Union Foundation. One will take place March 15 to April 9, the other April 26 to May 21

Participants will engage in a mix of on-demand and live learning sessions over the four weeks on Mondays and Tuesdays between the hours of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET).

Since 1982, the DE Program has inspired credit union professionals and advocates to leverage the unique business model of credit unions and serve our members and communities in new and better ways. While many trainings focus on the “what” and “how” of credit union service and operations, the DE Program focuses on exploring the “why.” 

Over the course of training, DE participants will engage in lessons focused on the credit union difference, development issues, and empathy. Upon completion of the DE Program, individuals receive their CUDE designation and join thousands of DEs worldwide.  

Last year, in order to meet credit unions where they are now, the Foundation transitioned the DE Program to a virtual learning environment. Read more about the success we have found bringing DE Training to a virtual environment here

The cost is $2,000.00 and full payment is required to reserve a spot in the desired session. Registration is limited to one person per organization per class. There is a maximum capacity of 48 US-based participants per session.

All participants will need: 

  • A reliable internet connection;
  • Access to Zoom; and 
  • A functioning webcam and microphone.
