Education Opportunities

The credit union environment is fluid. If you are not moving forward, you are falling behind. A primary focus at the League is ensuring that we provide the skills and information to help our credit unions to make certain they move forward and succeed.

Your League searches available education resources to bring the best to your credit union. We offer a robust in-person education calendar, complimented by webinars and teleconferences. These resources cover a spectrum of subject areas and are aimed at member-contact staff, back-office staff, supervisors, managers, CEOs, and volunteers. They include financials, marketing, business development, regulatory compliance, human resources, lending, collections, management, security, technology, and other operational areas.

Here is an overview of resources—by no means definitive—that credit unions can refer to for education opportunities.

Credit Union League of Connecticut

The League offers a wide variety of sessions that serve to educate on specific topics or provide opportunities for idea exchange and resource sharing.

Our printed Annual Event Calendar and our website online calendar list on-site and off-site classes, networks, seminars as well as roundtables, teleconferences, and webinars that cover an exciting range of topics.

Go to Calendar of Events to view available sessions and other opportunities on a month-by-month basis.

The League also has available Customized Training programs at a reasonable hourly rate. For more information, click Customized Training here or in the Member Portal section.

NCUF

The CUNA-affiliated National Credit Union Foundation sponsors a Credit Union Development Education program (CUDE) that focuses on the power of the cooperative credit union movement through community development and assistance to low-income credit unions. The CUDE program additionally provides participants with an excellent opportunity for career development and personal enrichment.

Education opportunities for credit union staff are virtually unlimited when taking the initiative to consult peers about their experiences or to explore online within as well as outside the credit union industry.

The League is available for assistance in this area. Please do not hesitate to ask us for direction.
