• Tom Connors Memorial DE Evening

    Each year, DE Alumni have gathered at Clyde’s of Gallery Place during CUNA GAC to celebrate the DE Program and reconnect with DE friends from around the world. We could not imagine having a GAC without the Annual Tom Connors Memorial Luncheon so this year, we are putting a new, virtual spin on a special DE tradition. 

    DE Alumni are invited to join the Foundation on Thursday, February 25 from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM CT for the first-ever Tom Connors Memorial DE Evening. You do not need to be registered for CUNA GAC to attend. The event will follow the same format as our in-person event with an update on the DE Program and plenty of time for networking with fellow DEs! 

    We hope you will join us to kick-off the 2021 GAC at the Tom Connors Memorial DE Evening!
  • Complete the DE Alumni Engagement Survey

    In 2020, the Foundation set out to further engage DE Alumni through various learning events and networking opportunities. This year we are committed to continuing down that path and we can't do that without your help. Our goal is to provide meaningful programming inspired by all of you. The information and feedback shared in the DE Alumni Engagement survey will be used to inform decisions regarding DE Alumni relations in 2021.  

    Any DE Alumni who complete the survey will be automatically entered to win 1 of 10 DE Training Little Man shirts!  

    The survey will be open through EOD Friday, February 19. Thank you in advance for your support.
  • Save the Date for DE 2021!

    Mark your calendars! We are happy to announce the dates for our Spring 2021 DE Programs:


    March 15 – April 9

    April 26 – May 21


    In order to continue to meet credit unions where they are now, both sessions will be held in a virtual learning environment. Sessions will run for four weeks with live classes being held from 10 AM – 4 PM CT on Monday & Tuesdays. Registration for the March and April DE Training Sessions will open on January 11, 2021 at 10 AM CT.

    Please note, that with all the uncertainty around COVID-19, the Foundation will be running two registration cycles in 2021. We are hopeful that we will be able to resume in-person training in 2021 however, the health and safety of future DE participants is most important in determining how we will offer DE Training next year. Programming details, registration information, and scholarship applications for Fall 2021 DE Training will be shared in early June.
