Principles & Philosophy Workshops

CUDE's attending a Principles and Philosophy Workshop
The National Credit Union Foundation provides support for state credit union leagues and Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) to host Principle and Philosophy workshops, which is designed to stimulate conversation around credit union values and principles. In these one to three day workshops, the Foundation provides participants with an historical perspective on our cooperative roots while focusing the nine international operating principles of credit unions.

With the retiring of many credit union CEOs and top management, new individuals are entering the credit union ranks at an unprecedented pace. This creates a need to inform new and upcoming credit union leaders on the credit union philosophy and cooperative principles.

The workshop is an appropriate learning experience for both seasoned credit union executives as well as the individuals new to the credit union movement. The program is designed to get participants to think, individually and as a group, about new approaches to similar problems and concerns.
