Best Advantage Credit Union, Brillion
I’m Don Emmer, a Financial Architect with Best Advantage Credit Union! It has been my pleasure to be a part of the Credit Union Movement for over 5 years starting as a part time teller just fresh out of high school. I have had a number of opportunities as a result of the Wisconsin Young Professionals to “crash” the WI GAC, WI League Convention and CUNA Lending Council Convention in New Orleans. It is hard to put a value on the networking experiences, the relationships that have been built and the experiences overall, but if I could it would be priceless!
Co-op Credit Union, Black River Falls
I am currently a teller at Co-op Credit Union and have been active in the Young Professional Network since May of 2011 when I had the opportunity to Crash the WI Credit Union League’s Annual Convention. Since then, I have facilitated meet-ups in the La Crosse area, mentored the group of Crashers at the 2012 convention and have become the 7 Rivers Region Chapter YP Liaison. Through these efforts, I’ve met many credit union YPs in the greater La Crosse area, across the state and throughout the nation. Not only have these experience been beneficial to my daily work at the credit union, but I’m inspired by all of the bright minds and great ideas we have throughout our movement. My goal is to help continue to grow our Network and help YPs get more engaged and excited about working for credit unions!
