By Donya Parrish, MCU VP–Risk Management
It has been a challenging few months for all of us, but as board members, you must especially feel the disruption. You may or may not be having monthly board meetings, and if you are, they likely are being done remotely or with some board members not in the room. You have probably been asked to help with decisions on lobby closure, the credit union annual meeting, assistance to provide to financially-stressed members, and more.
We want you to be aware of some great new resources that our national partner, CUNA, is offering to support your role. In their Board of Directors (online) Community, they are now posting short video segments by nationally known speakers. The two that are currently available are:
- Jeff Rendel — How to Hold a Great Virtual Meeting
- David Reed — Surfing the Wave of Pandemic Guidance
There will be more, and they will no doubt be useful. If you are not yet part of the Community, use this guide to join. The videos are found in the library tab, under a folder named “Board Video Library.” The site already has many useful resources available, just waiting for you to take advantage of them!
