NASCUS readies May, June educational events

(April 30, 2021) NASCUS opens its human resources (HR) webinar series in May, setting the stage for even more events in June on issues related to marijuana and hemp those facing senior examiners from supervisory agencies.

The HR webinar series, which begins May 19, features Diane Pape Reed, president of CUDoctor, a full-service consultancy and training company. She is also co-founder of the annual CUNA Human Resources Compliance Certification School and was VP of Sales and Administration for a mid-sized Credit Union for 10+ years.

In the May 19 session, Reed will focus on building team trust and managing remote employees. In a May 26 session, she will highlight common remote management missteps and how managers can avoid them.

Both virtual sessions are one-hour long and begin at 2 p.m. ET.

In June, NASCUS plans two events: a three-day virtual school on marijuana and hemp issues, and its senior examiner forum.

The June 9-11 Marijuana and Hemp eSchool looks at recent regulatory updates, how businesses are evolving in the sector, what financial institutions should be considering in developing their own cannabis and hemp banking programs, and business payments (among other things).

The virtual e-school is led by Deirdra O’Gorman, founder and principal of DX Consulting. Since 2015, she has also served as CEO of The Fourth Corner Credit Union (4CCU), the first credit union chartered in more than 10 years in the state of Colorado.

Earlier in the month, on June 2, NASCUS holds its senior examiner forum (from 1:30-3:30 p.m. ET). The session focuses on confidential, but frank, dialogue on such issues as the new MERIT exam program, virtual examinations, cybersecurity, secondary capital and more.
