Let’s celebrate the impressive work our colleagues are doing to “MAXXimize” the Credit Union Difference!

Northwest Young Professionals Network: YP Leads Opportunity

Do you work at a credit union in Idaho, Oregon, or Washington? Do you identify as a young professional? Now is your opportunity to help shape the future of the Credit Union Movement!

In collaboration with YCUP Portland & SW Washington, YCUP Greater Seattle Area, and Climb Idaho, the NWCUA is delighted to announce the exciting, first-time-ever opportunity for 18 young credit union professionals—six from each state—to be designated as 2017 YP Leads. 2017 YP Leads will attend MAXX 2017 with key costs covered by the NWCUA and our generous sponsors.

As a Lead, you will be responsible for working with NWCUA staff to further shape the larger, growing Northwest Young Professionals Network, agree upon outcomes, design programming that fits within the current YP community, and identify clear roles and responsibilities.

If you’re selected as a Lead, you will:

  • Attend this year’s MAXX Annual Convention October 23-25 in Spokane, Washington
  • Attend 2 pre-event conference planning calls
  • Attend all sessions (general, breakout, etc.)
  • Volunteer at various events, including (but not limited to):
    • CU4Kids Auction
    • CULAC Booth & CULAC Fundraising
    • Advocacy Booth
    • Event setup and teardown
    • Complete an Impact Statement no later than 15 days after the event

After MAXX, you will:

  • Join the leadership of your local YP group or chapter to support your local credit union movement
  • Attend at least one NWCUA advocacy event in 2018
  • Co-create the programs needed to grow talent in the Northwest
  • Participate in additional leadership and volunteer opportunities in the future, as they become available.

Preference will be given to those who have not attended an NWCUA or ICUL convention in the past. However, this will not necessarily be a determining factor, so all “young professionals” are welcome and encouraged to apply.

Be a part of this unique opportunity at MAXX and beyond by letting your leadership and voice stand out as part of the Northwest Young Professionals Network.
