Why the Credit Union Marketing University (CUMU)?
Credit union marketing budgets are squeezed due to increasing operational, regulatory and technology costs. CEOs and CFOs are expecting and even demanding more bottom line results for marketing dollars spent. To understand the complex, competitive marketplace and how to respond with effective marketing takes more than having a marketing degree, on-the-job training and/or experience at the credit union.
Since training costs have also decreased, the original full-week Credit Union Marketing University (CUMU) program has been retooled for more cost effectiveness. The new program offers webinars, coaching calls, informational handouts and samples, worksheets and one-one-one advice.
Now, credit union managers, C-Staff and the marketing team can learn how to make strategic decisions for the best marketing solutions. They will be taught to consider the financial impact and calculate bottom-line results. CUMU bridges the gap between existing skills and the expertise needed to meet the demands of the current marketplace for your credit union's success.
Who has attended the CUMU?
Marketing professionals, senior managers, and CEOs from credit unions of asset sizes from $22 million to $905 million. Any credit union executive who is responsible for the development or implementation of marketing at the credit union will gain from the curriculum of the CU Marketing University. The experience of our faculty enables the discussion to be tailored for every size.
