We’re here to help leaders at all levels meet their learning needs during these uncertain—and in ‘regular’—times.

CUES has perhaps been best known for its in-person learning events and its flagship CEO Institute. But we’re becoming known for our amazing digital learning benefits that are included in membership, be it at the individual, Unlimited or Unlimited+ level.

Right now, in these uncertain times, established and emerging leaders are turning to CUES for these digital learning opportunities more than ever. We know this because the number of learning pathways—curated collections of content on a topic of interest—that are being completed on CUES Learning Portal is up 45%. Our traffic is up for videos, podcasts, articles and blogs offered on, also—especially those about virtual board meetings, virtual annual meetings, leadership in crisis, digital transformation and reopening.

To do our part to provide learning opportunities to more credit union professionals during these unique times, CUES is offering non-members a 45-free trial of all the digital learning benefits available through CUES membership. Why not spend 45 days learning what’s going on over here at CUES and why our membership grew significantly last year?

Using CUES membership benefits, you can learn more about how to best manage the COVID-19 pandemic and also sharpen specific leadership skills you’ve always meant to focus on. You can take the free trial as an individual or as an organization (through Unlimited or Unlimited+). (Read the few simple “rules” about this offer here.)

As I discuss in this episode of CU Broadcast, we’re looking to extend this free trial throughout the summer as CUs work their way through this unique situation. While no hard end date for the free trial has been set so far, why wait? I encourage you to sign up today. When you do, we’ll provide you with a “scavenger hunt” that will take you through your benefits bit by bit so you can digest them and engrain them into your development journey. I think you’ll find CUES membership so valuable that you’ll want to continue even when the free trial period ends.

CUES is known for building leaders—for providing resources that support leaders in filling the necessary buckets to be successful. Supporting current and emerging leaders with tools that help them move successfully through this free trial is one of the ways we can be there for our industry.

Still need a little more inspiration to sign up? Check out the video below of me talking about this free trial and taking a Tik-Tok dance challenge.
