This spring and summer, CFCFE is delivering governance training to some regional forums of the ABCUL trade association. These one day sessions are a crash course for new credit union directors and a refresher for experienced ones in all the key components of governance, from roles and responsibilities to risk management to co-operative values. The integrated system we present comes from our report Credit Union Strategic Governance, from 2017, which we are currently refreshing, in part informed by the great discussion during these training sessions.

After last week’s event in Leicester, hosted by (CFCFE member) Clockwise Credit Union, one new director of a large employer credit union said it was “fantastic training”, and an experienced director from a smaller community credit union said it was “excellent: engaging and so relevant”. If you would like to discuss getting CFCFE training for your directors or executives, on governance or another topic, please contact us at
