 Permanent link
MADISON, Wis. (4/20/12)--CUNA FUSE--Branch Operations & Business Development School will be presented July 30 to Aug. 2 in Las Vegas, with the theme, "People, Passion and Process," said the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

The school provides credit union branch managers and business development professionals with an opportunity to meet and explore blended approaches to their specific credit union duties. Participants will discuss ideas to fuse responsibilities, and drive efficiency and growth.

The theme centers on people to help professionals learn what motivates their staff; passion to push them to do more and make an impact in the future, and process to help their teams think like entrepreneurs and find the most efficient way to operate.

"This school embodies what sets credit unions apart from other financial institutions," said Courtney Cantwell, manager of instructional design at CUNA. "The idea that sales and service are not competing ideals but components of the same cooperative spirit is distinctly a credit union value.  Every year we see branch managers and operational professionals leave more in tune with one another, and charged with an unmistakable enthusiasm for the credit union cause," she added.

CUNA FUSE--Branch Operations & Business Development School will also feature a pre-conference event with international productivity expert, Neen James, to be held on July 29 in Las Vegas.  The pre-conference is designed to help credit union professionals focus attention and manage their time.  Neen will discuss topics such as:

  • Strategies to increase your personal productivity by 30%;
  • How to achieve strategic clarity;
  • Energy management versus time management; and more.
