January 12, 2018

Kate Martin, Senior Policy Advisor, Community Impact, Canadian Credit Union Association

The credit union system abounds with knowledge and experience on how to use the credit union business model for positive impact while driving growth for the credit union.

Gathered together for the first time, credit union community impact experts will share their knowledge and expertise on topics including community impact strategies, environmental management, social finance and impact investing to help your credit union enhance the positive impacts it can have in community and contribute to growing your business.

Developed by CCUA’s National Credit Union Community Impact Committee, CCUA and Cusource® are pleased to launch the first-ever Credit Union Community Impact Certificate! Registration is available here.

What is the Credit Union Community Impact Certificate?
A ten week, professional development opportunity to enhance general knowledge about the ways credit unions can make positive impacts in their communities, while at the same time growing their business.

Vision
Recognizing that community impact is a key competitive differentiator for credit unions, the Credit Union Community Impact Committee is working to develop a professional development opportunity to enhance community impact capacity at Canadian credit unions. The Credit Union Community Impact Certificate has been developed by credit union community impact thought leaders specifically for the credit union context.

Who should enroll?
Credit union staff and board members who’d like to better understand what community impact is and how to move their credit union towards a culture of impact.

What’s the commitment?
Participation in the Credit Union Community Impact Certificate program involves listening to live webinars and participating in discussions over the course of 10 weeks beginning in February. The webinars will be recorded in case you’re not able to listen live. There are also short assignments to complete each week to reinforce learning topics that must be completed to earn the Certificate.

Registration for the full Certificate program
Registration is open and available here. Please note that the total capacity for the Credit Union Community Impact Certificate program will be 15 participants.

Registration for individual modules
There’s also an option to register for individual modules for credit union staff who’d like to learn more about some of the topics, but can’t commit to the full Certificate program.
