Harnessing YP Energy (The HYPE)

Harnessing Young Professional Energy

MCU’s official young professionals group is called HYPE (Harnessing Young Professional Energy). This active community comprises professionals around 40ish or younger and employed by a credit union in Montana.

Registration for our Annual HYPE Workshop in Great Falls is now open! Join us June 12-13 for professional development sessions and networking opportunities:

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 Michelle.)
  • They host a June workshop tailored to and reserved for young professionals.


How Do You Get Involved?

If you or someone in your credit union is 40ish or younger and interested in networking, sharing knowledge, professional development, and community engagement, contact one of the members of our HYPE Committee for more information. We’re also looking for two young professionals to join our committee. Apply today!
