The seven international Credit Union Development Educator (DE) programs, in partnership with World Council of Credit Unions, recognized nine individuals who received their International Credit Union Development Education (I-CUDE) designation at the recent 2018 World Credit Union Conference in Singapore. Among them was Norman Stockton of 1st Street Credit Union in Florida.

The Development Education Program is designed to encourage an international exchange of ideas and opportunities around credit union philosophy. In an effort to encourage trained development educators to learn from their international peers and to learn from international travel opportunities, the seven international CUDE programs offer their development educators the opportunity to achieve an I-CUDE designation.

To achieve the distinction of an I-CUDE, development educators must:

  1. Complete their local DE program;
  2. Complete an independent studies project appropriate to the learning objectives of the DE program;
  3. Participate in an international program, conference or training opportunity. This may include but is not limited to an international DE program, an international immersion program or an international volunteer assignment; and
  4. Attend World Council’s World Credit Union Conference or a regional confederation conference.
