05/15/2018 To 06/06/2018 Online

CUNA Credit Union Finance eSchoolThe need for credit union financial training has grown far beyond the chief financial officer. The environment in which credit union managers operate continues to become more complex as credit unions are faced with more competition from traditional financial institutions, as well as nontraditional organizations offering financial services. For credit unions to survive and flourish in a robust business environment, sound business practices must be followed.

Now, more than ever, credit union professionals need the value of financial training. Volunteers, executives, and managers are now being asked to make critical decisions based on their financial knowledge.

With the NCUA’s regulation covering board members of federally chartered credit unions, it’s important that volunteers have a thorough understanding of this material. This school goes way beyond the basics and beyond the requirements of the regulators, it give attendees an understanding of why finance matters and how it affects members in a comprehensive and thorough way.

Attendees are also eligible to earn their CUNA Board Financial Literacy Certificate by participating.

Register early and save! CUNA member credit unions save $200 when they register before April 15, 2018. Registration price after April 15, 2018 is $1,295.

This event is produced by CUNA Center for Professional Development and endorsed by CUNA CFO Council.
