SCMS & CUs Care

All students enrolled in the Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) this year received a red Credit Unions Care T-shirt in honor of Cornerstone's newly launched Credit Unions Care campaign. July 15 was designated as "Red-Shirt Wednesday," and even the instructors wore the shirts.

One of the most notable ways credit unions give back is through their alliance with Credit Unions for Kids and the Children's Miracle Network. The Credit Unions Care campaign is a great opportunity to help the community and credit union members understand that credit unions really are different, and that "people helping people" is not only a philosophy, it's the way we do business.

That's why the Credit Unions Care initiative fits so perfectly with SCMS training. Credit unions care deeply about their communities, and the Credit Unions Care campaign promotes the many ways credit unions give back. Many of the credit union professionals in training at SCMS will spend their weekends involved in a community service project or working at places like the Fort Worth Food Bank.

“Students exemplify the caring spirit when they are on campus," said Cornerstone's Senior Director, Training & Events, Janine McBee. "The CUs Care campaign just captured the heart of what the students and school is all about.”

SCMS is recognized in the credit union movement for innovative, intense, hands-on, professional development. It helps strategically position credit unions and students and creates networks for a lifetime. People from credit unions of all asset sizes, from less than $10 million to more than $3 billion, and from assistants to CEOs, take part in the comprehensive SCMS training.

The focus is not where or who you are but, instead, the future of the credit union industry. Of the 123 students currently attending, 34 will graduate and 50 are just beginning their three-year journey toward completion.

"Collectively, SCMS makes us stronger and better positioned to serve our members and our credit unions,” McBee said.

Act now to join the excitement! Prospective students should visit for additional information. To find out more about SCMS, contact Janine McBee at 469-385-6634 or 800-442-5762, ext. 6634. 

The Credit Unions Care campaign kicked off June 15 and runs through August 31, 2015. Learn more about the Credit Unions Care campaign.
