Cornerstone Community FCU

Course Description:
Are you in a member-facing role at your credit union? Do you ever wonder how the transactions you help members with translate into your credit union’s overall financial results? Are you in a supervisory role at your credit union and wish that your personnel had a better understanding of the credit union’s financial condition and results?

The New York Credit Union Association’s Basic Accounting Workshop is a one-day session created specifically for front-line credit union personnel who are not accountants. This session is designed to help staff understand credit union reporting and how the work they do serving members relates to the credit union’s overall finances and financial reporting. The discussion will take a practical approach to explain financial reporting without getting into technical accounting jargon. At the same time, commonly used terms will be explained so that participants will be able to understand basic terminology that is part of credit union accounting and financial reporting.

Educational Investment:  $129

Registration Deadline:  Friday, July 7
