November – December 2013
This network is designed to provide a forum for supervisors and managers to discuss issues and best practices related to managing people. The topic for this program is Training for 2014, and will be facilitated by Barb Bass.
Barb will review some nation trends for training and approaches CUs are taking in incorporating into management responsibilities for 2014. This overview will be followed by an open discussion. Part of the open discussion will include identifying opportunities for CUs to collaborate in creating and maintaining a cross-sales culture. Topics include:
- What topics are required training?
- What are CUs focusing on in 2014?
- Cross selling – how do you manage cross selling goals

The CFPB will be issuing new rules related to combining the mortgage disclosures provided to consumers under the Truth-in-Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. Combining these rules for purposes of issuing disclosures for mortgage loans will require credit unions to create and deliver a new early disclosure as well as a new closing disclosure for certain home secured loans. This webinar will discuss the details of what needs to be included in the disclosures as well as when and how they must be delivered to members.
The webinar will be followed by an ‘open discussion’ at the conclusion of the program.

These webinars will be placed on the League’s member-protected area of the website.
Credit unions promote the economic well being of their members, especially those of modest means, through a system that is member-owned, volunteer-directed and not-for-profit.
The credit union mission has always been to ensure secure financial choices at lower costs for their members. That’s why credit unions offer financial products that provide better returns on savings, reduced rates on loans and lower or no fees on services.
While credit unions are regulated by the federal and state governments, they are also governed by volunteer boards elected by their membership. Credit unions don’t answer to stockholders, but to each of their 96 million members.
Credit unions invest in people by helping those who have been traditionally underserved by banks. Groups like seniors on fixed incomes, single working moms, minority communities needing greater community investment, and small business owners struggling to raise capital all rely on credit unions for important financial services at reasonable costs.
While the big banks have abandoned small businesses in droves because they just can’t make enough money, credit unions promote their small business members in a struggling economy by providing low cost credit alternatives. This credit union investment means millions of jobs across America.
Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million credit union members who represent 40% of all Americans, yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit and meeting their core mission every day.
That’s wrong and will imperil the credit union movement that so many have come to depend on for real financial choice.
Don’t let Congress raise taxes on 96 million credit union members. Don’t let Congress eliminate real financial choice. Don’t let Congress destroy our credit unions.
