ULEND Academy can be ‘game changer’ for your credit union’s loan programs

The lending space is becoming more competitive with new and unexpected sources like Amazon and Apple infringing on the space. It’s more important than ever for your credit union staff to be fully prepared for any lending opportunities with your members.

To educate key staff on how to assist members and the credit union’s bottom line by capturing opportunities, ULEND Academy is a lending game changer. The academy will be held May 12-13 in Atlanta, Ga., packing vital information into the two-day session.

“ULEND Academy is a hands-on, customized experience that propels lenders from transactional to consultative, meeting members’ full financial needs,” said Jennifer Martin, LSCU senior vice president, strategic initiatives. “The curriculum guides lenders from foundational to advanced skill levels in all lending channels and across all stages of the loan process – origination, underwriting, and closing – with cross-selling, consultation and compliance woven throughout.”

ULEND Academy is set up as a hands-on workshop where participants will discuss, learn and then apply. Graduates will walk out knowing how to use the skills and concepts learned in their daily interactions with members.

“We realize the value of credit employees’ time, and this course ensures participants walk away with knowledge they can immediately put into action,” Jennifer explained. “That’s invaluable to credit unions.”
