YP Summit is the young professional event of the year. It takes a focused and hands-on approach to help you further your professional journey and provides an opportunity for authentic connection amongst like-minded peers.
“This event in particular has enabled me to build relationships with other YPs who have become wonderful mentors and resources for me, and many have become dear friends. The activities and exercises presented to the group are fun, challenging, and help push attendees out of their comfort zone and stretch their imaginations to uncover ideas that will push the credit union movement forward. The YPs are such an integral piece of the movement as this group holds our next round of executives and CEO’s, and really are the movement’s leaders and shakers.”
– Tina Wickes, VP of Lending, Columbine FCU
