There’s no lack of training opportunities for credit union volunteers, from the exotic to the pragmatic. But if you look carefully at the training, you’ll see that it’s generally not as inclusive as the word “volunteer” is supposed to imply. (Volunteer = directors, ALCO members, credit committee members, supervisory committees, etc.) Those training options are almost always designed for board members/directors. And don’t get me wrong; I don’t begrudge them the opportunities, even in the nice locations, so long as there’s good training on hand, not just sightseeing.
