Forty-five credit union professionals became Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) after being guided by dedicated program facilitators and mentors through the intensive Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training from the National Credit Union Foundation. The DE training was held September 14-21, 2016 at the Lowell Center in Madison, Wis.
After attending the September DE Training, Julia Sohn, Vice President of Human Resources at SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union in Santa Ana, Calif., said, “The DE Program wasn’t a training - it was a life experience. I walked away with a heartfelt understanding of who we are as a movement, and profound respect for what it took to get us where we are today. I’m energized and ready to do all I can to help better the lives of others.”
