first_imgWhen you are considering attending volunteer events, there are several different factors to consider, most of all being “How would going to one of these events help me?” Luckily, we’ve weighed these options and come away with a few different considerations for you. Consider these five insights for Credit Union National Association (CUNA) volunteer events in 2018.CertificationA lot of board training has great speakers and sessions but one takeaway I see attendees valuing is the designation. Becoming a Certified Credit Union Volunteer proves your dedication to advancing your professional career and your credit union, while learning information that will help you be a more informed board member.NetworkingThe connections I’ve seen attendees make with their fellow volunteers at our learning events is something to highlight. When talking to past attendees, they are always talking about the great people they’ve met and connections they’ve formed that through our programs. Credit unions from around the country and even worldwide come together to share their experiences with each other. This opens your mind up to other points of view and situations that you may not have considered. You’ll leave a CUNA event with a network of peers that you can count on for years to come. Hot topic discussionsI always make sure to keep credit union needs top of mind when creating the schedule for the volunteer programs. We strive to incorporate attendee feedback into the sessions that are created. It’s important to us that volunteers are staying up to date on the latest trends in the industry and that attendees get fresh information from year to year. We focus on weaving in fundamental knowledge and new topics for discussion so credit unions can continue to thrive.Industry expert insightsIt is important to us that attendees are getting insights from the best in the business. We strive to bring in some of the top minds in the credit union industry from around the country to guide credit union professionals through their professional journey. Many speakers have decades of valuable experience that they are ready to pass on to attendees and will continue to come back and speak at CUNA events because of their passion for the movement and the connections that they’ve made.Premier pricing If you are a CUNA member, there is another incentive for your participation. You receive significant savings. There’s also added value when a group of volunteers attends an event together. We want our training to be affordable for everyone to get the knowledge they need to be the most successful in their role. There are a lot of training opportunities out there, and I encourage you to take advantage of a CUNA event. We have a full line up of upcoming training opportunities for you to check out on our website. I hope to see you at an upcoming event! You won’t regret it. 54SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michelle Johnson Michelle Johnson is an Instructional Design Manager for CUNA’s Center for Professional Development (CPD).   Her primary responsibility is to develop the volunteer training programs for CUNA.  In this role, … Web: Detailslast_img read more

first_imgSome 40 percent of the around 1,000 people surveyed on April 29 and 30 said they approved of the president.His government faces growing criticism of its post-lockdown plans, in particular the move to start reopening schools next week even though students in hard-hit Italy and Spain will not return to school until September.Nearly 330 mayors in the greater Paris region have urged the government to delay the school openings, saying strict health measures including a limit of 15 students per class are proving difficult to implement.But parents worried about exposing their children to infection will not be forced to return them to school.”I understand their questions, their concerns,” Macron said, though he added: “For a child, being forced to stay home for two months is quite a traumatic experience.” He said his goal was “for all students who need to return, because they are falling behind, because their families are unable to help them study, because their parents have to work… that they are able to go to school”.Ministers are set to meet on Thursday to finalize post-lockdown measures and determine which regions are still facing critical risks, which could limit any easing of travel restrictions.Macron also urged people to continue with social distancing and other protections to limit the outbreak.”We don’t want to start sliding back after three weeks,” he said. “We’re going to limit major international travel, even during the summer holidays. We will remain among Europeans, and maybe we will have to limit that even more,” he said.Scores of events have already been cancelled and people arriving from outside Europe will need to spend two weeks in isolation, a blow to the tourism industry in the world’s most-visited country.”The virus is still here, we have not beaten it,” Macron said.The president’s approval rating slid six points down in a month, according to a poll by Ifop-Fiducial out on Tuesday. It is too early to say whether summer holidays will be possible, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday, as the country prepares to ease a two-month coronavirus lockdown.School and business closures and stay-at-home orders imposed in mid-March will begin to be lifted from May 11, but businesses like cafes and bars will remain closed and people will not be allowed to travel more than 100 kilometers from their homes.Macron said in a televised interview that officials should know by early June if France has averted a new flare-up of COVID-19, as the country’s death toll rose to 25,531 on Tuesday.center_img Topics :last_img read more
