DE Training provides critical lessons in cooperative principles and credit union philosophy while incorporating challenges faced by credit unions. Participants were involved in group exercises, field trips and issue discussions with speakers from the credit union system. Participants are required to complete team projects proposing solutions for credit unions to help alleviate or eliminate challenging situations.
During 2014, for the first time, three DE training sessions will be held in one year.
The first DE training of 2014 will take place Jan. 22-29 at the Rizzo Conference Center, near the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill, N.C. The next two trainings will be held April 23-30 and Sept. 10-17 at the Lowell Center in Madison, Wis.
