MADISON, Wis. (1/23/12)--Registration is open for the Fall 2012 Credit Union Development Education (DE) training class taking place Sept. 6-13 in Madison, Wis.
Attendees of the six-day immersion experience will learn about credit unions' social responsibility, and domestic and international development, said the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF), which sponsors the event.
NCUF said participants cite several benefits of attending DE training, including:
- Acquisition of skills in credit union outreach initiatives, problem solving, technical assistance, team building and public presentations.
- Certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs). Graduates join a networking group of more than 1,000 in more than 30 countries;
- A realization that local issues are global--and that global issues are local;
- An understanding that credit unions grow stronger by working cooperatively; and
- An understanding of how to promote cooperative principles and credit union values as advantages in today's competitive financial services marketplace.
The training will take place at The Lowell Center, part of the University of Wisconsin-Extension on the UW-Madison campus.
Registration is limited to 42 attendees. For more information, use the link.
