CUES’ Program for Emerging Leaders Now Accepting Applications

(From CUES® Emerge) – CUES® Emerge, the industry’s premier emerging leader program, is now accepting applications for the 2023 cohort.

“As CUES Emerge goes into its fourth year, we reflect on and celebrate the three previous cohorts of emerging leaders that have benefitted from this program,” said Jerry Saalsaa, CUES Interim CEO & SVP/Chief Administrative Officer. “Nearly 100 credit union employees have been part of the program and have taken the lessons they’ve learned back to their credit unions. Many of them have accepted new roles, or worked on new projects, and they credit the CUES Emerge program as being instrumental in their growth and abilities.”

The program, which is developed in partnership with Currency, combines online learning, peer collaboration, and an exciting competition component where participants will develop a business case to drive innovative ideas in their credit union and communities. The participants who complete the course work and business case in full will earn the Certified Credit Union Manager designation in recognition of their strong commitment to their career, credit union, and the industry.

Participants can self-select into the competition phase for a chance to present their business case in an online pitch show. The ultimate winner, chosen by a panel of judges, will be named the CUES 2023 Emerging Leader and receive an educational prize package.

Any current credit union employee who has not yet reached the C-Suite level is eligible to apply to this free program. To learn more about the program or to apply for the 2023 cohort, visit Applications will be accepted until February 13, 2023.
