The DE Program helps 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 earn their CUDE designation and join over 2,000 credit union advocates from around the world.
This coming spring, the National Credit Union Foundation will host two DE Training classes in a virtual learning environment. Over 4 weeks, participants will engage in a mix of on-demand and live learning sessions. Live learning sessions will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays between the hours of 10 AM – 4 PM CT for the duration of training.
March 15 – April 9, 2021
April 26 – May 21, 2021
Registration will begin for our March and April DE Training Programs on January 12, 2021, at 10 AM CT.
Please note, that with all the uncertainty around COVID-19, the National Credit Union Foundation will be running two registration cycles in 2021. We are hopeful that we will be able to resume in-person training in 2021 however, the health and safety of future DE participants is most important in determining how we will offer DE Training next year. Programming details, registration information, and scholarship applications for Fall 2021 DE Training will be shared in early June.
