CU Strategic Planning is Joining Forces with the NCBA!
On February 26, the National Cooperative Business Association will launch its new community development initiative and CU Strategic Planning will be there!
Continuing its efforts to build a national framework for a cooperative economy, the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) will host an event announcing its new community development initiative at its Washington, D.C. headquarters on February 26 at 6:00 p.m.
The NCBA already provides a variety of tools and technical assistance programs that assist in strengthening and developing cooperatives, and CU Strategic Planning’s Community Development Certified Financial Counseling (CDCFC) training program will serve as a new building block in the overall initiative.
The event will also spotlight Pelican State Credit Union ($200 million: 33,530 members; Baton Rouge, LA) as the nation’s first financial institution to certify its entire staff in the NCBA-accredited CDCFC training program.
Essential for credit unions serving moderate-to-low-income populations, the CDCFC training, testing, and certification ensures that organizations like Pelican State can better serve their members and customers who are experiencing financial challenges.
The CDCFC program is a fully integrated counseling experience specifically designed to cater to the needs of CDFIs, and organizations serving the financial needs of low-income consumers—including integrated tools staff can use to counsel members toward a brighter financial future.
This tool is already redefining CDFI culture, and more importantly—achieving results.
