Seventy-seven 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. Now in its third year, the program is supporting its highest number of participants to date.
“MnCUN is excited to collaborate again with our league partners to connect top talent in the Tristate Mentorship Program,” said Mara Humphrey, president of the Minnesota Credit Union Network. “We are grateful and proud to have so many participants commit their time and talent to the credit union movement.”
“Mentoring is a proven model to support our leaders, empowering and encouraging them in their personal development and career goals," added Gerry Singleton, president/CEO of Montana's Credit Unions. “The Tristate Mentorship Program demonstrates collaboration while deepening relationships and best-practice sharing across our three states. Our credit unions and our movement are stronger than ever because of this program."
Brett Thompson, president/CEO of The Wisconsin Credit Union League, stated, "The Movement is made stronger through this collaborative, cooperative effort that develops our credit union professionals and utilizes their talents."
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.
