The Credit Union Governance (CUG) designation is ideal for members of Credit Union Boards of Directors and Board Oversight Committees, as well as Credit Union Managers. There is a specific focus on the duties and responsibilities of members of Boards of Directors, Board Oversight Committees and other Committees of Credit Unions, as well as the Manager, Risk Management Officer, Compliance Officer and other officers of the Credit Union.
The Programme has been developed to reflect the ongoing legislative changes to the Credit Union regulatory structure, and incorporates all aspects of the 2012 Credit Union and Co-Operation with Overseas Regulators Act. The textbook is cross-referenced throughout with specific Acts, Regulations, RCU requirements and Guidance Notes.
The CUG designation provides both a source of external assurance and a reference for holders in the changing Credit Union landscape. I would encourage those in governance roles within Credit Unions to continually reinvest in their own knowledge base and to view the CUG designation as affirmation of their commitment to their role in the Credit Union
