Apply for the 2019 YP Leads Program and Attend MAXX 2019 in Spokane


The 2018 YP Leads having a fun time at the annual MAXX Convention in Tacoma in 2018.

Are you a credit union employee looking to take a giant professional leap forward? Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 YP Leads Program. Seize this opportunity to grow your career and meet other young credit union professionals. 

Launched in 2017, the Northwest Young Professionals Network provides credit union employees with the opportunity to attend the annual Northwest Credit Union Association’s MAXX Convention and become part of a growing network of tomorrow’s credit union leaders. 

This opportunity is open to NWCUA member credit union employees in Idaho, Oregon, or Washington who identify as young professionals. Under a partnership with the Emerging Credit Union Leaders of Alaska, young professionals from affiliated Alaska credit unions are also eligible to apply. 

Twenty YP Leads will receive a complimentary registration to this year’s MAXX Annual Convention, taking place Oct. 15-17 in Spokane. Travel and lodging costs will be the responsibility of the YP Leads’ credit unions, with need-based scholarships available. 

In addition to attending MAXX, YP Leads will serve as ambassadors for the Credit Union Movement over the following year by: 

  • Playing a key role in building a growing network of engaged peers by participating in pre- and post-MAXX conference calls and other opportunities to strengthen relationships and share ideas. 
  • Committing to serve as a strong credit union advocate, either by attending a 2020 advocacy event or championing local advocacy efforts within their organization.
  • Becoming involved with their local Young Professional Group or Credit Union Chapter. 

The deadline to submit your application is June 20. YP Leads will be chosen and announced on Aug. 1. For full contest details and to apply, visit YP Leads online. 

For questions, reach out to NWCUA Director of Cooperative Momentum Carmen Vigil
