Application Deadline Approaching for YP Advisors Group
Tuesday, September 29, 2015 6:30 AM

YP Advisors

Cornerstone Credit Union League is accepting applications through Thursday, Oct. 1, for the Young Professionals (YP) Advisors group.

YP Advisors are an entrepreneurial group of young credit union professionals under the age of 40, interested in helping create and accelerate change in the credit union system and spark positive growth in our communities.   The League is looking to these bright young minds in credit unions to accomplish the following:

  1. Incite positive change for the future
  2. Break down barriers to collaboration
  3. Bring new perspective to the credit union system

Jeremy Daggs, director of marketing at University & Community FCU, said of his experience, "Serving as a YP Advisor was unique. Working with other credit union YPs from other states opens your eyes to the credit union world and what it offers to the everyday people of the United States. I learned that no matter what your background is or where you come from, people can come together to do good works if they are doing it for a good cause and I believe credit unions are a good cause. I made a connection with each person on the advisory board, and it has been one of the best groups of people that I have been involved with." 

The recipe for how you will spend your time breaks down like this:

  • Two parts project-focused working group
  • One part think tank for the credit union system
  • One part advisory group to the League

Want to be part of this unique group? Submit your application!

Time is limited.  The application deadline is Thursday, Oct. 1. Cornerstone will select finalists, and those finalists will be scheduled for a face-time interview. If you are chosen to be a member of the YP Advisors, please note that you will need to be available for:

  • At least four in-person workshops per year. Your airfare or mileage expenses will be covered; however, all other expenses (hotel, food, gas, etc.) will be responsibility of the credit union.
  • Commitment to execute MANY projects over the course of your term.
  • Ongoing phone and online conversations throughout your term.

To apply by the Oct. 1 deadline, simply visit the CUYP website.
