2016 SRCUS Grads
The class of 2016 (above) had a total of 44 graduates, including five from Mississippi.

The 2016 Southeast CUNA Management School (known as SRCUS) held June 10-17 in Athens, Georgia had more than 150 credit union professionals in attendance, including twelve students from Mississippi.

The eight-day summer program is one of the premier credit union learning opportunities in the southeast, with a three-year curriculum that focuses on developing students’ operational, managerial, and leadership abilities.  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 2016 participated in a volunteer outreach effort with the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, where they recovered nearly 1.5 tons of food for families in need in Northeast Georgia. The Class of 2016 also made a $1,000 financial gift to the food bank, which translates to 8,000 meals for families in need.
