Financial Center Manager Becomes Certified Credit Union Development Educator
Haylee Teeple, one of the Credit Union's Financial Literacy Managers, has earned the distinction of being named a Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE).
Forty credit union professionals from across the United States convened in Madison, Wisconsin in April to take part in the CUDE program.
During the week-long program, participants were involved in group exercises, field trips, encouraged to ask questions of visiting speakers, and are required to complete team projects proposing solutions for credit unions to help alleviate or eliminate challenging situations in any given area.
“DE Training provides critical lessons in cooperative principles and credit union philosophy while incorporating challenges credit unions face today,” said Lois Kitsch, DE Facilitator and National Program Director for NCUF. “It is timeliness that we strive for in the entire DE training experience as participants work through critical issues that include member business lending, mergers and small credit unions, bank conversion, serving emerging markets, national branding, and credit union development in Haiti.”
