Are you creating your first ERM Program for your credit union? Do you want to ensure your current program is complete yet, “keep it simple”? If yes to either question, this webinar is for you! Credit Unions need processes, policies, and procedures in place in order to assess and manage the risks on their balance sheet. Marci shares the fundamental pieces of the ERM puzzle, how they relate to each other, and how to integrate your ERM program into the credit union’s Strategic Plan.
