CU leaders graduate from Foundation’s first virtual DE program

Thirty–seven credit union leaders were designated as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) after completing the National Credit Union Foundation’s Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training. The September DE Training was held from Sept. 14 – Oct. 9. This marks the first class to complete DE Training in the new, virtual learning environment.

The virtual training was completed by employees and volunteers from credit unions and system partners across the United States credit union movement.

DE Training is a unique experiential training program that provides lessons in credit union structure, purpose and the “why” that differentiates credit unions from other financial institutions.

During the Foundation’s signature program, participants engage in small and large group exercises and interactive speaker sessions focused on the credit union difference, development issues, and empathy.
