CUES, WesCorp Cancel Finance, Economics Institute
MADISON, Wis. -- CUES and WesCorp said today the Executive Finance & Economics Institute, scheduled for Feb.11-16, 2007, has been canceled. The two organizations are considering making modifications to the institute to make it more economically feasible for all credit union leaders, according to CUES. This may include condensing the materials to modify the curriculum from a focus on global economics to a more credit union-specific viewpoint. Carol Humenick, CUES' chairman of the board and senior vice president, community and government affairs at Citadel Federal Credit Union, said, "We realize credit unions are tightening their professional development budgets, and that it is sometimes difficult for executives to be out of the office for an entire week. We have a strong partnership with WesCorp, and we look forward to creating a new program that is not only more budget-friendly, but more credit union-specific as well.
