Central Minnesota Credit Union (CMCU), has received a training grant through The Minnesota Job Skills Partnership Program (MJSP), a division of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.  A grant signing ceremony was held on May 29 at the Administration Center of CMCU with members of the MJSP board of directors, CMCU board of directors and staff, and community members.  

The grant will assist CMCU in developing a CMCU Leadership and Financial Leadership training development program. CMCU will be working with the Alexandria Technical and Community College to redesign current curriculum and develop new courses to complete the internal Leadership and Financial Leadership development program. “Our culture empowers employees to be involved in leadership and the financial planning process, which is why we are developing the leadership and financial education for our current and future leaders,” said Nadine Rieland, Vice President of Human Resources at CMCU.  Employees will learn the skills that are a necessary part of management at CMCU.  Rieland continues, “The increased knowledge of the CMCU team, in direct regards to leadership and finance, will lead to increased strength, service, and growth of the organization, employees, members, and community.”  Paul Moe, MJSP Director presented the grant to CMCU at the signing ceremony.  “The MJSP has provided grants to many top employers in the state of Minnesota.  We are happy to now offer one to CMCU,” said Moe.  The MJSP grant award is $228,760, and will be completed over the next three years.
