MADISON, Wis. (06/18/2013) – CUNA announced today that registration is now available for CUNA Enterprise Risk Management Institute, in collaboration with The Rochdale Group, Inc., taking place December 9-12, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. For more information and to register, visit training.cuna.org/erm.
“We are hearing from credit unions that adoption of strategic risk management models is returning significant benefit – organizationally and financially,” stated Todd Spiczenski, Senior Vice President, CUNA Center for Professional Development. “Following our sold out conferences this year, this will be our fourth ERM event with The Rochdale Group.”
This institute provides credit union executives with extensive risk management knowledge including the tools necessary to incorporate risk management into the culture of their credit unions. With expertise from enterprise risk management (ERM) consultants of The Rochdale Group, Inc., attendees can expect to leave this institute with an understanding of their own risk appetite, risk beyond investments, and how risk management can drive decision making at their credit union.
This institute is the third activity presented through the CUNA and The Rochdale Group, Inc. collaboration. This collaboration leverages the reach of CUNA with the ERM expertise of The Rochdale Group, Inc., to provide credit unions with ERM techniques, tools and advice.
At this year’s May institute, 91 individuals earned their Credit Union Enterprise Risk Management Expert (CUERME) certifications. Attendees of the December institute will also have the opportunity to earn their CUERME designations and be officially certified as credit union ERM experts.
