NCUA promotes small CU office in new training video
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (12/7/11)--The National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA) Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) announced a free training video Tuesday, An Introduction to OSCUI, to give credit unions information on how services of  that division of the agency can help small credit unions " grow and thrive."

OSCUI Director Bill Myers said the free training video is one of a series of planned future training and informational videos "to underscore NCUA's commitment to the success of small, low-income and newly chartered credit unions."

The OSCUI administers the NCUAs Community Development Revolving Loan Program and aids small credit union development and member service. The NCUA said the 33-minute video provides a general outline of the OSCUI and gives tips on how to access its services.

The video addresses four small credit union programs. They are:

  • Direct assistance through one-on-one consulting;
  • Classroom-based and online training courses;
  • Financial assistance through grants and loans; and  
  • Partnerships with government, non-profit and private organizations.
NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said in a release that the agency is "committed to making sure small credit unions are fully informed of all the resources available to help them succeed," Matz added.
