A Word From Our CEO, John Pembroke

Educating emerging Leaders

CUES Emerge program launches to support the future of credit unions.

At CUES, we believe that investing in the next generation of leaders is incredibly important to the credit union industry. 

This is why our mission includes educating and developing future leaders. This is why we celebrated the attendance of so many millennials at our recent Directors Conference—and why the event program included a session in which young board members gave pointers about recruiting millennials to serve on credit union boards. This is also why we’re evolving our very successful, decade-old CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec challenge into our new CUES Emerge program, which combines online learning, peer collaboration and an exciting competition component.

While many emerging leaders are young people, an important feature of the new CUES program is that emerging leaders of all ages are encouraged to participate. Another key component of CUES Emerge is that education is front and center for all participants, rather than the prize for the ultimate winner. I’m also really pleased that all participants in the new challenge who successfully complete the online classes, peer sessions and a business case will receive our new CCM (Certified Credit Union Manager) designation.

In addition to all the education emerging leaders will get from participating, being part of CUES Emerge in 2020 will be a great way for these budding leaders to learn about or deepen their use of their CUES membership benefits, as the educational components of the program will be delivered via CUES Elite Access courses, the CUESNet online forum and CUES Learning Portal.
