Forty-five credit union professionals became Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) after being guided by dedicated program facilitators and mentors through the intensive Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training from the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation). Florida credit union professionals were among those earning the designation in Wisconsin, along with credit union movement representatives from across the U.S, as well as representatives from Ghana, Scotland, Peru, and Malawi.
Florida graduates included: Todd Cunningham, Central CU of Florida; Lisa Johnson and Roy Echols, Suncoast CU; and Fareeda Murrell, Guardians CU.
DE Training provides critical lessons in cooperative principles, credit union philosophy and international development issues while incorporating challenges credit unions face today.
