Focused development to fit unique needs
The Carolinas Credit Union League is committed to inspiring, connecting, and advancing people in our credit union movement, and many find just what they need in our premier events, roundtables, and workshops. We also understand that effective development of leadership and staff sometimes requires a unique approach.
Timing, specific needs, and demand for resources create challenging situations. The League is ready to help. Existing programs encompass topics from budgeting and compliance to philosophy and volunteer responsibility, and agendas are adjusted to fit. We also can seek to connect multiple credit unions for cooperative benefit and cost-effectiveness.
