Putting the credit union difference into action

Published by: Christy Clark

January 12, 2023 | Ohio Credit Union League Foundation

Since 1982, the Development Education (DE) program and its international alumni network has transformed the culture, strategy, outreach, and impact of the Credit Union Movement. Through education, immersive events, and collaboration, DE builds awareness of the development issues that prevent people from achieving financial freedom—and how credit unions are uniquely positioned to address them.

The in-person 2023 sessions held in Wisconsin will run from June 12-16, Sept. 25-29, and Oct. 23-27. The virtual DE program is delivered over three weeks. Live learning sessions are held Tuesday through Thursday for the first two weeks; Tuesday through Friday for the last week. Training times are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. CT. The 2023 virtual session will be held from Jan. 31 – Feb. 17.

The Louise McCarren Herring Credit Union Development Education Scholarship is available through the Ohio Credit Union Foundation to assist with funding an individual attending the DE program. For more information, click here.

Credit union advocacy strength is built by the willingness of Ohio credit unions to go above and beyond to advocate for 3.2 million members. Last week, dozens of credit union leaders joined the League for a meeting with U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) to discuss the successes and challenges facing credit unions and their members in his home state.

As we start a new year, it is essential that credit unions have a review process for policies and procedures.
