Through the Young Professionals Commission, we're helping New York credit unions engage, connect and empower the next generation of credit union leaders.

The Commission is a group of talented young professionals and volunteers (age 35 and younger) from across the state who develop and implement initiatives specifically for their peers. By supporting their efforts, we've created one of the most dynamic, enthusiastic communities of young credit union professionals in the nation.

Commission Initiatives

Young professionals and volunteers are encouraged to take advantage of the following opportunities:

  • Local Meet-ups: These free, local gatherings are open to all credit union employees/volunteers age 35 and younger. Agendas feature valuable networking, industry presentations and service projects/fundraisers. Meet-ups are held before or after work and are posted on the Association's event calendar and in The Point.
  • Email Network: By completing the YP Network membership form, young professionals/volunteers can receive and share email updates about networking, education and outreach opportunities.
  • Website & Facebook Community: The Commission maintains a website and Facebook community to share information and promote engagement among their peers.
  • Future Leaders Initiative: A groundbreaking study, white paper and toolkit completed by the New York Credit Union Association and its Young Professionals Commission.

Commission Membership & Support

The Commission was created by the Association in 2010 and is sustained by funding through the New York Credit Union Foundation. Commission members are appointed annually. To learn more, visit the Commission Membership page.
