We achieve this mission by:

  • Holding an annual conference dedicated to celebrating the role of the director through the provision of both educational and professional development sessions.
  • Recognizing long-serving directors who have demonstrated their commitment to the credit union movement through their years of dedication and volunteer service to one or more Ontario credit unions or caisses populaires
  • Recognizing and supporting new directors and emerging leaders in the credit union system
  • Supporting director education and training programs, such as Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA)
  • Providing no-charge venues for credit union or co-operative charitable foundations at our annual conference
