Prepare Your Leaders

Be ready for the challenges that await you in 2015 and beyond.

January 1, 2015
Credit unions depend on high-performing leaders. That takes professional development and training. With CUNA Councils, and CUNA’s eSchools and resources, you’ll be ready for the challenges that await you in 2015 and beyond.
 
Security and compliance training
 
Credit unions need skilled professionals to manage increasing security and compliance demands.
 
Earn your Credit Union Security & Fraud Expert (CU-SFE) designation in 2015 and attend the recorded CUNA Security & Fraud Certification eSchool, available until April 15.
 
In this eight-session eSchool, you’ll grow in expertise about how to keep your credit union safe from robberies, scams, and internal fraud. The sessions include:
 
• Get a Robber’s Perspective: Robbery Prevention and Risk Reduction; 
• Protect Your Members and Your Credit Union; 
• Social Engineering: Fraud’s Firm Foundation; 
• Employees: Fraud Fighters or Facilitators; 
• Working with Local Law Enforcement; 
• External and Internal Security Audits; 
• Physical Security Audits— Participant Presentations; and
• Robbery Anomalies and the Lessons They Provide.
 
After completing the eSchool, you’ll have the opportunity to earn the CU-SFE designation.
 
Connect with your peers
 
Join CUNA Councils to grow in your career, connect with other leaders from credit unions nationwide, and access exclusive tools, resources, and educational opportunities. Run by and for credit union executives, CUNA Councils target their networking, information and programs to key areas of credit union management.
