MADISON, Wis. (2/13/12)--Registration and school information is now available for the 2012 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Volunteer Certification School, Sept. 23-28 in Long Beach, Calif.
The CUNA Volunteer Certification School is designed for credit union volunteers who wish to sharpen their credit union acumen and take their duties to the next level. During the course of the week-long, volunteer certification program, credit union volunteers will gain the knowledge needed to perform their volunteer duties with confidence and expertise.
CUNA Volunteer Certification School curriculum comprises lectures and discussion sessions, culminating in five certification exams on the following topics:
- Safety and soundness;
- CEO oversight;
- Strategic planning;
- Board operations and development.
"At the CUNA Volunteer Certification School board members dive into complex credit union issues and work through them in simplified and practical ways," said Kevin Smith, CUNA Director of Volunteer Education. "The school also provides credit union board members excellent networking opportunities and the opportunity to reach a new tier of volunteer skill and excellence."
For board members seeking to earn their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation who are unable to attend the live school in September, the certification program is also offered as a self-study option through the Volunteer Certification Program.
Upon successful completion of the CUNA Volunteer Certification School or the self-study Volunteer Certification Program, volunteers will earn their CCUV designation and CUNA Board Financial Literacy Certificate.
