Lending Council Donated $10K
Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Courtney Moran accepts a check from the Cornerstone Lending Council for $10,000 at the Southwest Lending Conference.

More happened this week at the Southwest Lending Conference than talk of loans. At the beginning of the three-day conference, the Cornerstone Lending Council presented the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation with a check for $10,000.

The donation represents the Council's commitment to helping provide education and training for lending professionals. It was the Council’s first donation to the Foundation.

Gary Parker, CEO of 1st University Credit Union, serves the Lending Council Conference Committee and made the check presentation. "Donating these funds to the Foundation aligns with our business plan and our culture of empowering lending professionals," he said. "We encourage continuing education and training. We deliberately made our presentation at the Southwest Lending Conference because of their many years of providing excellent training programs."

“The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation was honored and appreciative to receive this donation at the Southwest Lending Conference," said Foundation Development Director Staci Zale. "We want credit unions to succeed. That's why we support continuous education for employees and volunteers in the credit union movement. We give credit unions an opportunity to take advantage of professional training, conferences, and professional certification programs. Together we do make a difference.” 

"We are committed to ensuring that all lending professionals can take advantage of the educational opportunities available," Parker said, "and this contribution to the Foundation should help in that endeavor."
