Mountain West 2018 Annual Meeting & Convention

Credit Union Young Professionals Track

Register for the Young Professional Track at the Mountain West Credit Union Association Annual Meeting and Convention!

Join other Credit Union Young Professionals (35 and under) from our region as we come together for three days of learning, networking and volunteering.

Wednesday, April 25, 2018:
You will be assigned a team made up of Young Professionals to run through mock scenarios of a credit union's strategic planning session. In most cases the mock credit union’s situation will be very different from that of your credit union. You will be taken through a full strategic planning session day for the mock credit unions. Through this day you will:

  • Learn about the strategic planning and decision making process
  • Learn how Mission, Vision and Value statements are developed and the create one for your mock credit union
  • Develop objectives for your mock credit union including in the areas of
    • Financial performance
    • Technology investment
    • Member outreach and growth
    • Leadership and education
  • Present your mock credit union’s strategic plan to the full group
  • Gain insight into the strategic planning process and how decisions are made at your credit union
  • Gain hands-on skills and experience in all areas of credit union operations including the importance of teamwork
  • Write down and share what you can do for your credit union from what you learned going through this process

You will also participate in a community service project to make blankets for Children’s Hospital Colorado and a networking hour following the planning session.

Thursday, April 26, 2018:
All Young Professionals will attend the Global Women’s Leadership Network Breakfast Meeting where speaker Debbie Scanlon, Partner, BKD will present Fear-less: Is Fear Holding You Back? followed by a service project.   The Global Women’s Leadership Network is the credit union industry’s only international platform where women and men are dedicated to addressing and facilitating greater gender balance among leadership positions. 

All Young Professionals will then volunteer at the Mountain West Credit Union Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament.  A large portion of program funding for Young Professionals is coming from the Foundation and this is a small way we can give back.

Friday, April 27, 2018:
Young Professionals will participate in all of the general and breakout sessions of the convention. You will gain insights and knowledge into the credit union industry and learn more about issues facing credit unions.
