MADISON, Wis. (12/21/11)--Registration and school information are now available for the 2012 CUNA Consumer & Residential Mortgage Lending School, April 2-5 in Orlando, Fla.
Through breakout sessions and keynote presentations attendees will have the opportunity to strengthen their core-lending skills, get answers to their lending questions and explore areas outside of their expertise. The school features experts across all areas of lending and is designed for all credit union lenders who would like to be at the forefront of their field.
Session topics include:
- Loaned Out: How the Best Credit Unions Loan Out Their Deposits;
- You Don't Know What You Don't Know About Risk;
- Economic Trends and Implications for Loan Growth; and
- Growing Direct Consumer Loans in a Bad Economy.
"At their local credit unions, lending professionals often are required to wear many hats," said Courtney Cantwell, CUNA manager of instructional design. "Lenders today can no longer afford to specialize in only one sector of the lending market, but must have a comprehensive knowledge of the entire lending world."
She noted the school can serve as a brief touch point every year to help lenders connect with experts and develop in their careers.
