HARRISBURG, Pa. (2/25/13)--A group of 12 young professionals from Pennsylvania credit unions met in Harrisburg Wednesday to begin planning a young professionals organization for credit union employees in the state.
The group will focus on three areas--advocacy, education and community service. The group--co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association and Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU--aims to help bring a voice to young credit union professionals and to help credit unions attract and retain them (Life is a Highway Feb. 21).
Association President/CEO Jim McCormack stopped by, voiced his support for the group and expressed how important its mission is to the future of the credit union movement.
The organization will be open to employees between the ages of 18 and 35 from affiliated credit unions.
The organization will have two goals--to create an informal network for young professionals to meet and become more involved in the movement, and to develop a certificate program for emerging credit union leaders.
