Credit Union Mastery: An Essential Workshop for Tellers and Member Service Reps
(August 5-6, Two-day session)
To our members, the teller and MSR is the credit union. It is imperative that theirs is a complete understanding of the professionalism and knowledge necessary to be successful at their jobs. To meet, and exceed the expectations of both the credit union and the member; they must develop essential job skills.
The teller and MSR need to process member transactions quickly and accurately. They need to have an understanding of banking regulations and compliance issues. They must have the ability to recognize and act on security issues such as: new account fraud, check fraud, and robbery, to best protect the member, employees, and the credit union. The teller and MSR must accept the challenges and learn the skills required to sell non-tangible credit union products. And, most importantly, for them to be able to fill both the financial and service needs of our members.
Through the League’s intense two day workshop, these important needs are addressed, practiced, and an expertise is developed. Upon completion, the teller and MSR will become confident assets of the credit union, ready to handle the daily challenges of their jobs, and become masters of their craft.

Effective supervision: how do we achieve it? What qualities and talents must a person possess in order to be a successful supervisor? What skills need to be developed in order to manage everyday activities, maximize productivity, and enhance relationships with both staff and membership?

The supervisor must be able to resolve conflicts, motivate employees, and keep attitudes positive. And, still not lose focus on the primary responsibility of service to the members.
