MADISON, Wis. (4/25/13)--The CUNA Supervisory Committee and Internal Audit Conference, Dec. 8-11 at Las Vegas, Nev., will address new trends that directly affect the oversight roles of attendees, the Credit Union National Association announced.
Through a curriculum specific to credit union supervisory committees and internal auditors, the conference provides attendees with knowledge and updates on their roles and oversight duties in the coming year, CUNA said.
"The board and supervisory committee uphold the trust and reliability for which credit unions are known," said Kevin Smith, CUNA director of volunteer education. "By empowering them to keep their knowledge and oversight sharp, we're looking after the credit union movement as a whole."
The annual conference will cover topics such as fraud, types of audits, growth of internal audit departments and oversight.
Attendees also have the opportunity to earn credits toward their Certified Credit Union Volunteer Designation by completing applicable on-site sessions and exams.
