An all-inclusive credit union board training, tracking, and reporting application
Your board is an invaluable resource to your credit union. An investment in your board members' education is an investment in your credit union's future.
Credit union board governance and leadership training made easy.
Board 360 was created to meet the professional development and training requirements of credit union boards and their directors. Board 360 is designed to help your credit union build a better board.
Training tailored to your board members' needs
As a baseline, ask each member of your board to complete profiles and assessments to determine their education, experience, and competencies.
Use the individual or aggregated profile and assessment reports to identify strengths and weaknesses, and recommend training for each board member.
Have board members view the Board 360 courses, videos, and webinars that you've identified each needs to enhance their knowledge.
Use the constantly-updated course completion data and assessment results to report on each board member's training progress, as required.
Training built with expert advice.
We've built Board 360 with the assistance of experts in fields such such as risk management, employment law, financial regulations, and leadership, and the guidance of organizations such as Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario, and Stabilization Central Credit Union of BC.
Training that fills in the gaps
With relevant, up-to-date content, Board 360's courses, videos, and webinars cover the topics your board members need to know. And its assessments tell you what you need to know about your board and its directors.
Board 360's courses and accompanying quizzes are concise, yet comprehensive explanations of topics of importance to credit union board members. Courses are divided into categories such as Financial Literacy and Compliance and Security. Quizzes typically consist of ten true/false and multi-choice questions. The content of all of our courses and quizzes is reviewed on a regular basis, and updated whenever there is a regulation or legislative change.
Created in collaboration with the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario and Stabilization Central Credit Union of BC, Board 360 contains several self-assessments that provide credit unions with the ability to determine board members' knowledge, and an assessment that enables board members to provide feedback about their board's performance. All assessments are summarized in reports that identify competencies, and highlight any knowledge gaps.
Our brief, to-the-point videos relay critical information in an easy to digest format, and supplement Board 360's course library. Videos feature experts in subjects such as non-profit leadership, business law, financial regulations, risk management speaking on topics such as the duties of directors, leadership responsibilities, internal audit, monitoring capital, and low board turnover. It's the information board members need — in three minutes or less.
Board 360's webinars are discussions by industry subject matter experts on topics of importance to credit unions and their directors. The webinars are presented live, so board members can log in to participate in the session. However, or if they're not able to attend, they can watch the recorded session through Board 360. Recent topics include an AML Update for Board Members, DICO Director Training and Qualification Assessment Coaching, and IFRS 9.
