Helping cultivate and connect tomorrow’s CU leaders.
The GoWest Credit Union Association is helping cultivate tomorrow’s leaders through the Young Professional Network. By convening young professionals from across the region and offering continual programming aimed at leadership development, the Young Professional Network will prepare the next generation of credit union leaders.
The YP Steering Group comprises two representatives from each of the GoWest regional YP groups across our six states. This dedicated group takes charge of guiding and overseeing our young professional initiative, ensuring its success and impact. Please contact Lexy Strong for more information on how to get involved.
GoWest is dedicated to nurturing a thriving community for young credit union professionals through the YP Leads program, the GoWest YP Summit, a suite of leadership development programs, and more. Attending this conference is an excellent opportunity to learn how to become a stronger leader in the Credit Union Movement, hear from expert speakers, grow your network, develop skills in workshops, and more.
