The National Credit Union Foundation's Credit Union Development Education (DE) Program is a transformative and experiential training that promotes the education and application of credit union business principles and philosophy. The mission of the DE Program is to help established and emerging leaders within the credit union movement understand and leverage credit unions’ unique business model to serve members and communities in new and better ways. Upon completion of the DE Program, individuals receive their CUDE designation and join the ranks of thousands of DEs worldwide committed to changing the world through credit unions.
