Director Training

The Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) Program is designed for professionals sitting on a credit union board, and offers the most current thinking about credit union corporate governance in three progressive levels.

CUDA PROGRAM
New directors want a better understanding of their role and of the business for which they are accountable. Experienced directors want to be-in-the know about current governance issues and trends. Both groups are in constant search for ways of strengthening their corporate governance practices. The highly respected Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) Program has been designed to meet these needs.

The CUDA program delivers the most current thinking about credit union corporate governance in Canada. This program is a road map to the knowledge and skills required to effectively govern co-operative financial businesses.

There are three levels in the CUDA Program: Foundations of Governance, Governance in Action, and Governance Application. Each level includes several modules and/or workshops providing in-depth learning. Since 2007, directors who complete the CUDA program are accredited by Dalhousie University as an Accredited Canadian Credit Union Director.
