Crane Credit Union announced its third class for its employee professional development program called LEAD. LEAD (Leadership, Education, and Development) is an exclusive opportunity to learn, discuss, and share leadership strategies with other employees across the organization.

Employees applied for one of six spots in this year’s LEAD class. A separate employee committee of executive and management team members reviewed all applications and chose the LEAD group. Both full-time and part-time employees were encouraged to apply.

The program consists of monthly meetings, speakers, and outings over the course of the one-year program. The goal is to increase employee engagement throughout the organization by encouraging the sharing of ideas between departments and management levels.
