Dear CUDE Training Attendee:
April DE Training 2010 is quickly approaching. Things here are progressing at full speed, and we're all very excited about this year's training. This is just a quick note to check in and to provide you with your next pre-training assignment.
Listed below are several articles to get you thinking about leadership and development in a global perspective. Each article is intended to provide you with a perspective and insight on issues that will be discussed throughout the course of the training.
Article One – Philosophy Training is Good for Business
Article Two – Create a Culture of Innovation
Article Three – Making a Difference
Article Four – What Ownership is All About
(Articles 1-4 with permission by Credit Union National Association)
Article Five – Our Commitment to the Community – A proclamation by Desjardin
Article Six – Change Everything (a blog site dedicated to changing communities and sponsored by a credit union)
Article Seven – Changing the Game: Leading corporations switch from defense to offense in solving global problems
Article Eight – Microfinance Open Book Blog
The Tuesday evening auction is a great event and a terrific way of giving back to the CUDE Program, as the auction will benefit the National Credit Union Foundation’s Development Education Fund. Just a reminder – we encourage you to bring a checkbook (yours or the credit union’s – it doesn’t matter), and most important, bring some special items from your state to donate if you can. In the past, popular items have included fun local sweatshirts, food baskets, or unique items other participants normally can’t buy in their region. If you’re able to donate something, we’d be most grateful. The more donated items, the more money we can raise for future DE-scholarships and DE-related development projects.
Enjoy the readings. If you have any questions at all, please email Lauren Pan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call her at 608-231-4979. We look forward to seeing you soon!
