Cornerstone Launches Volunteers Council
The Cornerstone Credit Union League of Dallas created a new council that provides resources, education and other opportunities exclusively for volunteers for its 559 member credit unions in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
The mission of the new Cornerstone Volunteers Council is to unite those who share a common interest in the credit union movement and allow for a centralized location to communicate and educate, according to a Cornerstone League prepared statement.
Membership in the council is free this year.
Dick Ensweiler, president/CEO of the Cornerstone League, said a communication and education website site that went live in late April is gearing up to meet the NCUA’s regulatory education requirements for volunteers.
“We want volunteers to join this council so that they will have access to a lot of information but certainly what is required by NCUA,” he said.
The Cornerstone league said volunteers will have access to a members only resource site with forums and document sharing, networking and best practices with peers, opportunities to learn from other shared experiences, mentoring and educational opportunities.
Ensweiler indicated the council could also be utilized to help credit unions with ideas on how to recruit new volunteers. The league also provides an executive search service through its subsidiary, CU Resources.
