2019 IRA Training Program

Sliding Tuition Scale Credit unions registering multiple personnel enjoy discounted tuition for all 2019 attendees.

For the third consecutive year, in addition to $50 (one seminar) and $100 (both seminars) early bird discounts off regular pricing, when your credit union submits multiple registrants by the August 15th early bird deadline, your tuition for each program attendee from your credit union gets reduced!

Early bird tuition registrations must be submitted online before 3:00 PM on Thursday, 8/15/19 and will be invoiced shortly thereafter, with payment due prior to the event date. Early bird registrations cannot be cancelled after 8/15/19 and are non-refundable, but substitution requests (via email only please) will be accepted until 12:00 p.m. on Friday, 9/13/19.

Regular tuition registrations submitted after 8/15/19 are invoiced after the event and can be changed or cancelled without cost until the final registration deadline of 5:00 p.m. on Friday, 9/6/19. Cancellations will not be accepted after that date, but substitution requests (via email only please) will be accepted until 12:00 p.m. on Friday, 9/13/19.

Tuition assistance for smaller credit unions is available through the Howe-Bergengren Education Fund (please submit by 8/23/19 to allow for processing) via the application available upon request.  Parking is free at the Hampton Inn & Vermont Event Center.

Distance Learning / Webinars

Distance Learning Webinars

AVCU partners with the Credit Union Webinar Network to provide affordable distance learning opportunities to our member credit unions.

Credit Union Webinar Network offers 90 minute live or recorded Webinars (usual start 3 PM ET) at a $200 registration fee. Each live Webinar includes digital handouts, one Internet connection, and one telephone connection for any number of viewers / listeners. Alternatively for the same $200 fee, the complete recorded Webinar, which includes a free digital download of the entire presentation and handouts, may be ordered. This free digital download can serve as an “off the shelf” training program for your credit union’s future training needs. The registration fee for both the live and recorded Webinar with free digital download is $250.


CUWN generously offers discounted pricing of $169 to credit unions with less than $20 million in assets that choose the recorded Webinar option.
