LSCU State GACs offer free pre-conference financial literacy training


For federal credit union directors that will be attending either the Alabama (Mar. 30-31) or the Florida (Apr. 13-14) State GACs, the LSCU is offering “free” Director Financial Training. The two-hour training will take place before the conference begins. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.


The Alabama State GAC offers the free training at the Marriott Renaissance hotel on Wednesday Mar. 30 from 8:30 -10:30 am, prior to the GAC awards luncheon.


The Florida State GAC free financial literacy training will take place at the Southeast Corporate headquarters, 3692 Coolidge Court, Tallahassee, on Tuesday Apr. 12 from 9:30 - 11:30 am, prior to the Tallahassee Chapter golf outing at Southwood Golf Club.


This training, its equivalent, or a demonstration of knowledge equivalency is required for all federal credit union directors by Jul. 27, 2011 or within six months after a person becomes a director of a federal credit union.


State chartered credit union board members and supervisory committee members of all credit unions are not required to obtain this training at this time. However, since it is “free” and quite often the state follows the NCUA’s lead on items like this, it might be a good idea to sign board members up for this training.
