MADISON, Wis. (10/15/13)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) has released a video on YouTube that answers the question, "What is Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training?"
The short video includes testimonials from recent DE Training graduates.
"The DE program is a great opportunity to help both new employees to credit unions as well as seasoned employees to have an opportunity to learn more about the history and philosophy of the credit union movement," said Patrick La Pine, League of Southeastern Credit Unions president/CEO, in the video. "I would encourage anyone to attend this program if they really want to learn how they can make a difference in helping the movement forward."

DE Training provides critical lessons in cooperative principles and credit union philosophy while incorporating challenges credit unions face today. During the six-day total immersion experience, participants are involved in group exercises, field trips, and issue discussions with speakers from around the credit union system, and are required to complete team projects proposing solutions for credit unions to help alleviate or eliminate challenging situations in any area.
Three DE training sessions are scheduled for 2014, with the first taking place Jan. 22-29 at the Rizzo Conference Center near the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill. The next two trainings will be April 23-30 and Sept. 10-17 at The Lowell Center, on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis.
