Your directors can and must keep adding knowledge during the crisis; our up-to-date virtual education options make it easy.
During these times of shelter in place and slow re-openings, some people are learning a new language. Others are learning mediation. Still others are learning how to cook.
What is your board learning?
I’m pleased to say that—as CUES members—your directors are eligible to take advantage of refreshed and hopefully refreshing online education opportunities. These include some that can help directors comply with the financial education-related requirement in the National Credit Union Administration’s rule 701.4.
For example, CUES Learning Portal features these new learning pathways designed especially for board members who are CUES members at any membership level:
- Credit Union Cybersecurity
- CEO/Board Relations
- New Director Resources
- First-Year Director: CUES Recommendations
- First-Year Director: Additional Resources
- Second-Year Director: CUES Recommendations
- Second-Year Director: Additional Resources
All of our governance content and Governance+ learning pathways are also regularly updated. Check out our complete collection of governance content on CUmanagement.com/governance. If you have Unlimited+ membership, your directors also can leverage the CUES Learning Portal Governance+ pathways on everything from governance basics to CEO relations to risk management to strategy.
Learning can become a positive habit. If you have Unlimited or Unlimited+ membership and your directors are asking for even more, suggest that they download the Welcome to Credit Union Leadership Guide. If you have Unlimited+ membership, The Director Onboarding Toolkit is available for your directors as well.
This is a perfect time to help your board do some refreshing learning. I hope you find your membership benefits a valuable assist in doing so.
P.S. Nominations for CUES Distinguished Director are due July 31.
P.P.S. We want to hear from you! In June, you’ll be receiving a membership survey from CUES that I hope you’ll complete. Hearing what you think is by far the best way for us to discover what you find most valuable about your CUES membership, and the areas where we can make improvements.
Jimese Harkley, J.D., CUDE, is VP/membership at CUES.
