Over 70 participants from three states were selected to participate in this year’s Tristate Mentor Match - a 12-month formal mentorship program developed in partnership by the Minnesota Credit Union Network, Montana’s Credit Unions and the Wisconsin Credit Union League. The program is designed to build, grow, and support professionals and inspire commitment to a career in the credit union movement.
“Mentoring is a cost-effective, valuable tool for developing the credit union movement’s most important asset, our people,” said Mark Cummins, president/CEO of the Minnesota Credit Union Network. “We are thrilled at the success of the first year of the collaboration, and are pleased to see even more participants in this second year of the program.”
“The Tristate Mentorship Program is an excellent example of cooperation amongst state leagues to provide an important value-add for membership,” added Tracie Kenyon, president/CEO of Montana's Credit Unions. “I had several conversations with mentors and mentees of last year’s program where each of them shared how meaningful the relationship proved to be. I am looking forward to hearing similar reports from this year’s participants.”
Brett Thompson, president/CEO of The Wisconsin Credit Union League, echoed with these statements. "After just one year, we are already seeing the fruits of this collaborative effort, in building and strengthening relationships across The Movement and in providing guidance and inspiration for credit union professionals to propel their careers forward.”
Mentorship pairs will meet monthly for the next year, supported by a program guide, check-ins from league staff, and additional resources to help maximize the experience for both the mentee and mentor.
The Tristate Mentorship Match is sponsored in part by Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union, Corporate Central Credit Union, and Millennium Corporate Credit Union.
