Young Professional Summit: Fostering Lasting Relationships

The Credit Union Movement is built on relationships. You develop meaningful connections with your co-workers. You’re always there for your members. You collaborate with community partners. And you inspire industry colleagues.

Learn how to foster lasting relationships with like-minded peers and industry leaders at GoWest Credit Union Association’s YP Summit.

Attendees will hear from Jeremy Graves, Director of Professional and Continuing Education at Boise State University, on “Leading with Purpose” and explore leadership development through DiSC® assessments. Jeremy’s CORE philosophy captures the fundamental opportunities leaders have to change the lives of employees, teams, and organizations and he aspires to empower the next generation of leaders with practical processes and solid tools that can be taken back and utilized in the workplace.

Nora Carpenter, owner of Peer Performance and executive and leadership development professional, will draw from her experience as a GoWest Foundation Board Member and as Past President and CEO of the United Way of Treasure Valley to lead a discussion on “Big L, Little I” to discover how individuals can be leaders not only in their professional lives, but also in their personal lives. Nora’s focus on building and inspiring emerging leaders to channel their talents toward positive, meaningful impact for themselves and their communities is sure to captivate the audience.


Here’s how rising credit union leaders described their experience at last year’s YP Summit:

“The connections made at YP Summit are priceless. Being among a group of enthusiastic young professionals, eager to support each other’s growth, was inspiring.”

“Attending the YP Summit was a game-changer for me. Embracing my strengths, particularly in relationship-building and mentorship, has given me a fresh perspective on my future.”

“I appreciated the platform provided for young professionals to engage in meaningful dialogue, encouraging us to step out of our comfort zones and actively participate. It was an amazing experience that enhanced both my professional and personal growth.”

“Surprisingly, networking turned out to be the highlight of the event. Despite my initial nervousness, I felt that I formed meaningful connections and learned valuable insights from individuals I wouldn’t have met otherwise. Overall, YP Summit was a transformative experience, expanding my perspective and fostering new friendships.”
