CUDA encourage all Directors to take the opportunity to complete the survey circulated by CUAC, endorsed by the Minister for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform. In his covering note the Minister stated “your responses will be invaluable in helping the CUAC, my officials and me to understand the experiences of credit union directors today and help guide future policy formulation”. This is a key part of CUAC’s workplan for 2019 and is a great opportunity to get your voice heard, please contact CUDA office if you require any assistance with this matter.
CUDA was invited by CUAC to present on their role, experiences and learnings in relation to facilitating credit union collaboration to assist CUAC with their policy paper.

Positioning Credit Unions for the next 5 years and beyond poses big questions for credit unions, such as how do you plan for a world that is in constant flux? and how do you make a credit union fluid enough to respond to constant change and volatility? In this presentation the CUDA CEO breaks these big challenges down in manageable steps, the key is to start with a clear purpose which CUDA believes is “improving the financial, social and environmental well-being of credit union members and their communities”, then identify the strategic themes, the appropriate measures ad finally the enablers and initiatives. CUDA and the Solution Centre roadmap are helping credit unions to get their positioning right.
