Trona Valley Federal Credit Union’s Gibson earns certification
Trona Valley Federal Credit Union’s Chief Operating Officer, Jeremy Gibson, was one of forty-three credit union professionals who became Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) through the intensive Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).
The Spring DE training was held April 23-30, 2014 at the Lowell Center on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, Wis. The graduating class included credit union representatives from across the United States, United Kingdom and Jamaica.
“I went to Madison not knowing what to expect,” said Gibson. “I left with a renewed pride for credit union history and the cooperative principles that serve as the foundation for what we do. Credit Union Development Educators are taught it’s all about people, not profit, and we shouldn’t ever lose sight of our purpose. When we stay true to our purpose, credit unions have a meaningful impact on our members and communities.”
