Foundation Supports Financial Counseling Certification Training and CUNA Management School
The Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) funding supports two training programs that help credit unions serve their communities. Registration is now open for the 2016 Financial Counseling Certification Training Program and applications are now being accepted for CUNA Management School Scholarships.
MCUF funding brings the National Credit Union Foundation’s enhanced self-study training program for credit union staff to Michigan again this year to assist participants in becoming Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors. Registration is open until April 15 for this financial counseling training program for credit union staff that combines the lower cost and convenience of a self-study program with the group hands-on learning and networking of a live CUNA school. Nearly 400 Michigan credit union professionals at all levels have participated in this program in the last five years. This training is useful for enhancing all member interactions including lending and collection activities and financial education and counseling.

MCUF also offers six scholarships to the 2016 CUNA Management School being held July 10-22 in Madison, Wisconsin. Applications must be received for consideration by April 8. Attendance at CUNA Management School benefits new and experienced managers or other staff who are committed to improving and enhancing their existing supervisory and management skills. See the MCUF webpage for more information and to apply for a scholarship.
In addition to these programs, MCUF funding is available to assist with Financial Reality Fairs for teens and Community Reinvestment grant projects. The foundation works cooperatively through donations to help credit unions with financial education, community reinvestment and professional development support. Learn more, apply or donate here.
