Need to fill downtime over the holidays, how about training?

first_img continue reading » Season Greetings Compliance friends, I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!As work-related obligations tend to slow down around the holidays, I sometimes try to use this time effectively by catching up on any webinars or training I might have missed throughout the year. Some of these are required based upon my NCCO or CLE obligations, while others are just fun topics I’ve been interested in and want to learn more about! It seems many credit union Board members have also found some time to kill, since NAFCU has been asked a few times over the past week about NCUA’s training requirements for board members.Rather than specific board training requirements, NCUA provides general guidelines addressing the Board’s oversight of the credit union, financial literacy and fiduciary duties among other topics.

Nine different state parks offer a First Time Camper Program. This unique initiative allows first-time campers to stay two nights at a state park and borrow camping gear — all with gentle hands-on instruction from resident expert campers.Of course, there are many opportunities to pitch a tent or park your camper at private campgrounds in the state as well. If all else fails, you can always give camping a try in your backyard.There are lots of reasons to go camping. Unplug. Connect children to nature. Create memories. Have fun. But the best one may be an affordable room with a view. The Blog Fireflies flickering. A circle of chairs around the campfire. Gazing up at the stars. One of the best ways to have these experiences (and for your kids to enjoy them also) is to stay the night outdoors.It’s estimated that more than 40 million people go camping in the United States each year. Pennsylvanians are fortunate to have lots of options when it comes to locations for camping on lands managed by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.Here are some places you can celebrate National Camping Month in June:In the state park system, 68 of Pennsylvania’s 121 state parks have overnight options.Those looking to really get away from it all can find primitive camping in Pennsylvania’s 2.2 million acres of state forest.If you prefer to explore Pennsylvania’s beauty with all the creature comforts, try the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle State Park.last_img read more
