Registration for University of Lending Mini Session Now Open!

Join your peers on August 19-20 or August 21-22 for a consolidated version of Rex Johnson's "University of Lending." This session will motivate, inspire and teach attendees the foundation for building a strong and profitable lending program. Additionally, participants will learn about scoring models, how to make a loan that would normally be turned down, high-yield lending strategies and how to evaluate and identify good sales people. 

Rex Johnson is a leading expert within the credit union and consumer lending industries. He has authored four best-selling books and eight videos. Johnson is the former CEO and first employee of Baxter Credit Union in Deerfield, Ill. During his 12-year leadership, the credit union grew to $300 million in assets. He has shared his expertise with thousands of credit union employees and volunteers worldwide. In addition to working with a number of credit union leagues, he has also served as an instructor for CUNA’s Advanced Lending School. Johnson created the first hands-on, interactive lending school for credit union professionals, which is called the University of Lending. 

Johnson received a master’s degree from Northwestern University. He was the Illinois Credit Union Executive of the year in 1986. He was elected into the Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame in April 2000 and into CUES Hall of Fame in November 2000.

"The Missouri Credit Union Charitable Foundation is honored to provide this level of training in lending to all Missouri credit unions at such a substantially discounted price. This would not be possible without the support and funding from the CDFI credit union initiative in the state of Missouri," says Kirk Mondy, Chairman of the MCUCF Board of Directors.

Special thanks to the Missouri Credit Union Charitable Foundation and the CDFI Steering Committee—Alliance Credit Union, Electro Savings Credit Union, Poplar Bluff Federal Credit Union and United Credit Union.
