Athens, Ga. (June 29, 2015) - Southeast Regional Credit Union Schools (SRCUS) is pleased to announce that 5 credit union professionals from Mississippi are among the 42 credit union executives recently graduated from the Southeast CUNA Management School.  In total, fourteen credit union professionals from Mississippi attended the 2015 school as 1st, 2nd or 3rd year students.

Since 1971, the Southeast CUNA Management School has equipped graduates with the skills and knowledge to meet the leadership challenges that arise in the credit union industry. The curriculum develops students’ operational, managerial and leadership abilities. Over the course of this three-year program, students receive advanced academic instruction on a variety of topics including management, leadership, and financial analysis. Students also apply the knowledge gained from the on-site sessions to projects that require strategic analysis of their credit unions and research of relevant issues facing the credit union industry.

In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, the Southeast CUNA Management School provides students the opportunity to develop their leadership capabilities and better understand the credit union philosophy so that they can contribute to the success of their credit unions and to the movement as a whole. In the true credit union spirit of “people helping people”, the Class of 2015 participated in a volunteer outreach effort with the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, where they recovered nearly 3 tons of food and nonfood product for families in need in Northeast Georgia.

Upon successful completion of the program, students received a graduation diploma issued in conjunction with the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education. Graduation from the Southeast CUNA Management School is recognized throughout the credit union industry as a prestigious mark of achievement.
