Cooperative Finance Leaders for America
The Federation is proud to launch the third year of Cooperative Finance Leaders for America (CFLA). This six-month paid fellowship will help new leaders put their passion for cooperative finance to work, while credit unions will gain access to a pool of talented staff who share a commitment to cooperative finance and financial empowerment.
CFLA will recruit, train and support up to 12 new and emerging professionals for placement in leadership positions in credit unions serving low- and moderate-income communities. The CFLA intensive training program will include a week-long summer institute in New York City, August 9-14, 2015, and on-going support throughout the fellowship. All fellowships are expected to begin in September 2015 and continue through February 2016.
We encourage credit unions to recruit candidates for participation in the fellowship program. Both the credit union and the candidate must submit completed applications within the deadline.
Completed applications for both the fellows and the credit unions are due on June 25, 2015. To learn more about CFLA, see the program overview.
Only Federation members may participate in CFLA. To learn more about membership with the Federation, please see the membership section.
