Foundation scholarships help CU staff better advocate for and serve members



I have taken away a better understanding of the credit union movement, life-long friends, and most importantly a new passion for the credit union movement. The 7-day training program is something I will value and have no doubt that it has already strengthened my career.” 


-Mikal Gilliat, Brewery Credit Union, on his participation in the NCUF Development Education Program


The Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation has dedicated itself to the professional development and continued education of credit union staff and volunteers through its Professional Development Scholarship.


The scholarships help credit staff and volunteers participate in two important programs: National Credit Union Foundation’s Development Education Program and the CUNA Management School.


Two scholarships were awarded in 2009. One went to Mikal Gilliat from Brewery Credit Union, who attended the NCUF Development Education Program, while the other went to Beth Krahn from County-City Credit Union so that she could attend the CUNA Management School.


The scholarships will be offered again in 2010 to help other credit union staff and volunteers continue their education so that they can better advocate for and better serve Wisconsin credit unions’ 2.2 million members.  


If you would like to help The Foundation continue to provide services like the Professional Development Scholarships, please consider making a contribution today.
