Great News! ULEND Academy is coming to South Dakota!
by CUAD Communications

The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas held its first CUNA Mutual Group ULEND Academy in Fargo last May – and it SOLD OUT weeks in advance! That’s because ULEND Academy is a lending GAME CHANGER. No more wasted hours in classes with great ideas that are hard to implement in real life. ULEND Academy is a hands-on, customized experience that propels lenders from transactional to consultative, meeting members’ full financial needs.


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 where participants will discuss, learn, and then apply over a two-day course. Graduates will walk out with new skills in hand, knowing how to use the concepts learned in their daily interactions with members. But be advised – these class sizes are limited, and therefore tend to SELL OUT quickly.


What is the agenda?

ULEND Academy offers real solutions for the real world! Some of the topics this class will cover include: communication/interaction styles to be more socially savvy; planning and prepping for the needs of your member; strategies for effective consultations; loan structuring alternatives that can positively impact loan decisions; building creative and personalized loan packages for every member; and closing with a purpose.


Who should attend?

EVERY lender will benefit from this knowledge; from new to seasoned loan officers! ULEND Academy is a unique lending experience aimed at helping all lenders, from all levels and various experiences get better at what they do every day.


When and where?

ULEND Academy will be held May 7 – 8, 2019 at the Hampton Inn and Suites Southwest in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Day one: 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Day two: 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


Let’s go!
