Posted by on Wednesday, 4 January, 2012

MADISON, Wis. (January 3, 2012) –CUNA is proud to announce the latest graduates of the 2011 CUNA Volunteer Certification School. Held this past September in Tempe, Arizona, 46 credit union volunteers completed five days of lectures, overviews and testing to earn both their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation and CUNA Board Financial Literacy Certificate.

The CUNA Volunteer Certification School was created to provide credit union volunteers with convenient, practical education in all areas of credit union operations through live lectures, discussions and testing. The program creates a simplified approach to complex subjects and gets credit union volunteers up-to-speed on the information they need to know to serve their credit unions most effectively.

“I would like to congratulate the 2011 Volunteer Certification School graduates for the dedication they have shown in advancing their education,” said Kevin Smith, Director of Volunteer Education at CUNA. “Volunteers who actively engage in the credit union movement improve the operations at each of their individual credit unions, and help set the bar for board education standards.”

The Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation symbolizes a thorough understanding of all areas and operations of the credit union. The CCUV designation can be earned by graduating from the CUNA Volunteer Certification School or completing theCUNA Volunteer Certification Program, a self-study education tool that features online learning modules. In 2012, volunteers interested in obtaining their Certified Credit Union Volunteer (CCUV) designation, can choose between the traditional classroom setting at the CUNA Volunteer Certification School, or engage in a variety of self-study training options.

The 2012 CUNA Volunteer Certification School will be held from September 23 – 28 in Long Beach, California. Additional speakers and session topics will be announced when information becomes available. Visit for future updates.
