Harnessing Young Professional Energy
MCU’s official young professionals’ group is called HYPE (Harnessing Young Professional Energy). This active community is comprised of professionals who are around 40ish or younger and employed by a credit union in Montana. Led by the seven-person HYPE Committee, the group is working to build momentum and increase the engagement of and professional development opportunities for younger credit union professionals.
What’s The HYPE About?
Members support one another, share ideas, serve as sounding boards, and encourage each other to get the training and experience they need to advance in their credit union careers. They really focus on embodying the credit union difference.
- They organize an annual fundraiser/community outreach event during MCU’s fall conference and have raised thousands for various Montana non-profits over the past several years.
- They produce a quarterly e-newsletter The HYPE (if you’d like to subscribe, email Ally)
- They recently launched a June workshop reserved for young professionals. Their first-ever is in June 2021 (virtually), and they’re excited to plan their first in-person one for 2022…
How Do You Get Involved?
