The Cornerstone Leadership Academy is an exclusive 9-month program covering each department in the credit union and how they work together to enhance their members’ financial well-being. The program was designed as higher education by credit union professionals for credit union professionals with a clear focus on engaging and developing tomorrow’s leaders.
High-level objectives of the Leadership Academy are to promote the credit union industry, invest new leaders in the movement, and provide an avenue for mentoring and understanding leadership philosophy.
In addition to leadership, students receive education in the following areas:
“The Cornerstone Leadership Academy was an eye-opener to all things credit union and is a great buffer for the Southwest CUNA Management School. Not only did the class cover the industry, but it really delved into what leadership truly is, which proved to be invaluable and what I got most out of the Academy. The small class size allowed for a more personal experience, and I will carry what I learned with me not only at work but in life as well.”
