Who Should Attend – And Why

DE training is open to everyone from new employees who need a credit union orientation to seasoned executives who need to recharge. Participants cite many benefits of attending DE training:

  • Graduates acquire skills in credit union outreach initiatives, problem solving, technical assistance, team building, and public presentations.

  • Graduates earn certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs). They join a networking group including over 1,600 graduates across America and 35 other countries.

  • CUDEs realize that local issues are indeed global – and that credit unions grow stronger by working cooperatively.

  • CUDEs return to their jobs with new understanding of how to promote cooperative principles and credit union values as distinct advantages in today’s competitive financial services marketplace.

  • CUDEs become passionate advocates of the credit union philosophy, which boosts employee motivation, creativity and a deeper commitment to their credit union organization and the movement.
