How do we support CUFA?
Each year Holiday Coast Credit Union provide financial support to CUFA as part of our community support initiatives.
At least one representative attends the Development Education program run by CUFA each year. The DE program is an inspiring and professional training and development program which addresses the importance and function of mutuals and credit unions.
Since its inception in 1991, the intensive 5-day DE program has generated exceptional results in personal development, credit union and cooperative education and awareness, plus the motivation and practical know-how for participants to make positive and valuable contributions to their workplace, and the greater community.
