As current Chairperson of the National Supervisors Forum (NSF), it is my pleasure to welcome you to this the redeveloped website of the National Supervisors’ Forum (NSF). It is the hope and aspiration of the NSF that this facility will be a great resource to you in your credit union activities, advising you of membership benefits, sectoral updates, training offerings and practical supports, in real time. Additionally, we anticipate that over time the website will act as a knowledge exchange platform for members.
Since its establishment in 2002, the NSF has been the sole representative body for Board Oversight and Supervisory Committees on the island of Ireland. As a consequence of its representative function the NSF is one of the key influencers of the credit union landscape in Ireland, North and South. Currently there are 174 Credit Unions affiliated to the NSF.
The NSF is managed and operated by volunteers exclusively, who act in accordance with its Constitution.
A central aspect of the NSF remit is the provision of cutting-edge professional training to its credit union membership, which is accredited by the key sector accrediting bodies of CU Learn, LIA and University of Limerick.
You might note that the redevelopment of the website is a “work-in-progress”. In particular, the NSF Downloads section is not as yet complete, in this regard we reassure you that the NSF is currently working on an Excel Workbook that will combine the Yearly Workplan and Templates for Board Oversight Committees/Supervisors which, we anticipate, will be available from mid-January 2021.
The NSF hopes you will make good use of this facility and welcomes any suggestion you may have relative to its enhancement.
Thank you for your continued engagement and support.
Dr. Deirdre Kelleher (NSF Chairperson, 2020).
