The SCMS Journey


Credit union CEOs place high value on graduates of SCMS because this immersive learning experience not only develops executive leadership skills and augments experience, it also ignites an inner passion and vision for personal and professional transformation.


SCMS is as rewarding as it is challenging, as attested to by more than a thousand SCMS graduates. A well-equipped leader is a catalyst for credit union growth, can expand one’s capacity for innovation, and gives graduates a career advantage.


When you attend SCMS, you—and your employer—are investing in the future of your credit union and the movement. SCMS graduates gain in-depth proficiency in advocacy, asset liability management, leadership, strategic planning, critical thinking, and more.  


At SCMS, you’ll develop executive leadership skills, gain community and international perspectives, and raise your influence among your peers and the movement’s prominent thought leaders. Welcome to the next step in your career!

Georgette Salazar, VP of Member Experience at Cy-Fair FCU

Southwest CUNA Management school has taught me how to better understand how each area of the credit union works in symphony with the other. It has shown me why it is important to have knowledge of all areas of the credit union so that I perform my job to a higher standard of excellence. I have learned to better collaborate to utilize both my physical and human resources. It has offered me the opportunity to earn two promotions since I began the program.
