Chad Helminak Headshot

The Foundation’s Director of DE and Cooperative Culture Chad Helminak joined us on the show to share the big news about the National Credit Union Foundation’s Development Education (DE) Program turns 40 years old this year.

Chad talked about how the Foundation will commemorate the DE program’s milestone, as well as what this longevity says about this program and how it has evolved over the years. We just interviewed MWCUA’s retiring CEO Scott Earl on the program (episode #2779) sharing his experience with program and being part of the very first class in 1982.

In addition, Chad addressed why the DE program has such a strong following for those who have graduated from it. You talk to anybody who has been through it and their eyes just light up — which bodes well for the industry.

Watch the full interview on the CUbroadcast website.
