Mountain West Young Credit Union Professionals (MWYCUP) is made up of young professionals seeking to educate and engage other young professionals within the credit union industry.
Why Participate in Young Professionals?
Younger people want to work for organizations that invest in them. We want to learn and grow with our employer and will seek out employers that offer opportunities for learning and development.
Participants in MWYCUP will have the opportunity to meet with legislators, work on grassroots campaigns, and have their voice heard by elected officials. They will learn about the founding principles and philosophies of credit unions and how to put them into action. Young professionals will engage in leadership, followership, skill, and other learning experiences. And lastly, they will work to raise the visibility and awareness of credit unions in their spheres of influence and in their communities.
Mountain West Young Credit Union Professionals (MWYCUP) is a Committee of the Mountain West Credit Union Association with program funding provided in part from the Mountain West Credit Union Foundation.
MWYCUPer’s will gain experience and knowledge through 4 Pillars of Development:
- Government Relations
- Credit Union Principles and Philosophy
- Professional Development
- Visibility and Awareness
