CU Forward Day: October 9, 2017
CU Forward Day, formerly Plus It Forward, is a statewide day of Minnesota’s credit unions spreading kindness in the communities they serve. The day is held annually on Columbus Day, a federal holiday on the second Monday of October.
All Minnesota credit unions are invited to participate in CU Forward Day by selecting a giveback opportunity that means the most to their staff and community. MnCUN will gather details from all credit unions participating in the day, create a collective impact report, and share it with the media, legislators, and opinion leaders statewide.
In the past, credit union staff have spent the day delivery gift baskets to local law enforcement, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, hosting a community shred day, volunteering for park cleanup, helping at a local food shelf, and much more. See below for additional ideas.
For more information, view the CU Forward Day webpage.
Discounted Webinars Available to MnCUN Members
MnCUN affiliated credit unions have access to more than 120 educational webinars annually. These sessions bring important information on credit union hot topics and compliance updates to staff and volunteers.
Now, a full page of webinars on sale for $150 has been added to the available education sessions. These webinars can be downloaded and used indefinitely. Credit unions are encouraged to use this cost-effective option to add shelf-stable topics to their training library. To keep the topics available up-to-date and relevant, webinars on sale will be changed quarterly.
Through its business development program, the Minnesota Credit Union Network provides credit unions around the state strategic planning and consulting resources. Through one-on-one assistance, MnCUN Director of Business Development, Kris Jacobsen, assists credit unions in tackling today's challenges and tomorrow's opportunities.
Jacobsen works with Minnesota credit unions to help them operate effectively through strategic planning facilitation, training sessions for volunteers and managers, one-on-one consultations with credit union officials, and acts as a liaison between member credit unions and financial regulators.
