Crash events coincide with a larger credit union conference and provides promising young credit union staff with an opportunity to not only attend the event, but also participate in unique speaker sessions and other activities at minimal cost to their credit union.
“Crashers” are selected through an application process they provide promising young credit union staff with opportunities to attend major industry conferences at minimal cost to their credit union.
So far, The League and generous sponsors have made Crash events possible at the following events:
2012 State Government Affairs Conference (League website username and password required)
Boot Camps provide YPs with a forum to interact with peers who work in the same positions/areas of the CU, as well as local CU leaders who participate in mentor or speaker roles. Typically they are either a half-day or whole-day event and Boot Camps focus on education and engagement opportunities that pertain to the CU system, advocacy and professional development.
We hosted our first Boot Camp at Citizens First CU in Oshkosh and have another Boot Camp coming up in on April 17 in Madison. We’re planning a few more for 2013 and we’ll be announcing details as they become available.
These events provide young professionals an opportunity to network locally with each other and often feature a specific topic or guest speaker. So far, we’ve held meet-ups in Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay and La Crosse and we’re working to set up more around the state. In addition, some YP meetings have been coordinated with local chapters.

Other YP Events
Once the Network Executive Committee gets settled in, we’ll begin to plan other events as needed. In fall of 2011 for example, we invited young professionals from New York credit unions to join us for a inter-state meetup. So stay tuned!
