Experiences & Events  leadership  SCMS 

Discover Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) re-imagined. As we pave the way toward creating the “next normal,” we are happy to offer advanced learning options in a format that suits your lifestyle and learning style.  

  1. This year, SCMS has been transformed to provide students a mix of virtual live and self-paced courses. With new courses and faculty at the helm, the curriculum was redesigned from the ground up and focuses on five pillars, including a deep dive into data analytics:
  2. Adaptive Leadership
  3. Advocacy
  4. Collaboration
  5. Finance and Economics
  6. Stakeholder Experience

“SCMS will provide an incredible opportunity for those seeking advanced learning to enroll and balance the virtual experience and not be out of the office for two weeks,” said Tamra Gaines, Cornerstone League vice president of experiences and events.

Since the first class in 1966, SCMS has evolved through the years to serve current and future leaders. The school has always served an important role in building professional networks and life-long friendships and will continue to do so in new and innovative ways.

“2021 will be a mix of virtual live and self-paced courses. For those who are familiar with Canvas – either from pursuing advanced education or homeschooling children – this is the academic experience platform we are using,” said
Janine McBee, SCMS director.

Some familiar aspects of the curriculum remain: same commitment to professional development, credit union growth, and fostering life-long networks and friendships.
