More Elite Access Virtual Classroom courses are planned.

The subhead on my April column stated, “Because you joined, anytime-education is available to you.”

That was true then and it’s even more true now, as CUES is expanding its Elite Access Virtual Classroom offerings.

Launched in 2017 based on feedback from CUES members, this online series is designed to maximize educational value, while minimizing travel and time away from work. Courses are presented in 60-minute live-taught, interactive online classroom session segments. Elite Access also includes virtual round tables in the lineup, which help participants hear and learn from others in the industry in a facilitated discussion around a key topic.

“CUES Elite Access is truly an innovative take on online learning,” said John Pembroke, CUES’ president/CEO at the time of the launch. “CUES Elite Access is highly interactive; attendees will be taught live by top instructors, so they can ask questions, and relate in real-time with their colleagues. It provides a much deeper dive into the subject matter at hand than webinars or other online learning opportunities.”

It's truly the closest thing to in-person learning! You can talk and interact with peers and experts, problem-solve, and build relationships, right from your desk. And the courses are included in Unlimited and Unlimited+ membership. (Not a member? For a limited time, you can sign up for our 45-day free trial!)

Here’s a preview of some of the courses coming up soon for leaders at various levels within your credit union. If you can’t attend live, a playback of many of the courses is available on our website after the session is over. More courses are to come, so be sure to check back later!

All of these programs are offered at noon Central time and last no longer than an hour. Take a morning learning break or plan lunch-and-learn session and join in! Hope to see you there soon, taking advantage of your CUES membership.
