CUNA Business Lending Certification School empowers credit union professionals to excel in business lending

May 10, 2023

CUNA Business Lending Certification School – taking place at the University of Wisconsin Business School in Madison, Wis., July 17-20 – provides the opportunity to earn the prestigious Credit Union Business Lending Professional (CUBLP) designation upon completion of all three years.

“The pandemic had a profound impact on small businesses, and credit unions have been seen as the 'first responders' in providing financial assistance,” said Kathy Smith, instructional design manager of lending compliance for CUNA. "This event is a valuable opportunity for credit union professionals to hone their skills in business lending, ensuring they are prepared to serve the small-business community."

CUNA Business Lending Certification School focuses on a range of core topics, including:

  • Developing skills as a guide for your credit union’s business lending 
  • Learning business and commercial lending essentials and best practices
  • Formulating applicable strategies for enhancing business lending programs at credit unions
  • Connecting with other business lending leaders and expert speakers

The event has received high praise from previous attendees, including Peter Chaber, AVP of business lending at Polish & Slavic FCU, who said, "If you are in any type of business or commercial lending, the CUBLP certification school is a must for you."
