Registration Open for SCMS Class of 2020
Thursday, March 8, 2018 6:30 AM

Southwest CUNA Management School, the three-year educational program designed to develop and enhance leadership skills for credit union professionals, is accepting enrollments for the Class of 2020. Space is limited, with only 50 spots open, so now is the time to consider the next phase of your career with SCMS.

SCMS provides an exceptional forum for networking with other credit union professionals and top industry experts. The immersive learning experience ignites an inner passion and vision for personal transformation and professional development. A well-equipped leader is a catalyst for growth in your credit union.

The SCMS program is as rewarding as it is challenging, as attested to by more than a thousand SCMS graduates. Programming includes a focus on advocacy, asset liability management, innovation, leadership, strategic planning, and critical thinking.

"Students learn to dive deep into the details of subjects like strategic planning, while also acquiring a broader view of credit unions in the marketplace," said SCMS Director Janine McBee said. "That includes community positioning and international perspectives—much like a CEO would do."

And because the SCMS faculty and the educational program are so highly regarded, credit unions can rest assured their investment will pay off many times over for their employees and the credit union.

"Faculty don’t teach to a test; they're tasked with making students uncomfortable with the status quo and eager to explore innovation," said McBee. "They're what we look to now as disrupters in the marketplace and catalysts for positive change. As students work through the curriculum, they strategically apply the concepts they’ve learned. After graduation, students find their lives actually change as a result of their SCMS experience.”

Amanda LeBlanc is a graduate of the SCMS Class of 2017. She recently announced her promotion to a new branch services director where she can guide branch managers and the training department at MCT Credit Union, which has been her passion for years.

"This could not have been done without your guidance, as well as many others through my SCMS journey," LeBlanc said of SCMS and McBee's influence. "The knowledge I’ve received through that experience has allowed me to become better equipped for this phase in my career."
