Young Professionals to Meet at Fort Worth Conference
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 6:40 AM

The 2014 Young Professionals Conference, focusing on collaborating, educating, activating, and engaging young professionals, will be held on August 7-8 in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Hilton. Speakers at this year's event will emphasize the importance of being involved and active in credit union and the community.

Mollie Bell, chief engagement officer for the Filene Research Institute, is one of the featured presenters for the Fort Worth conference. Before working for Filene, Mollie worked for CUNA Mutual Group, as the vice president of the program management office. Mollie began as a young professional and will use that experience to reach attendees. She will talk about the expectations of credit union leaders, as well as why many young employees often feel detached.

Young leaders want to positively impact the credit union movement and reach others of the new generations. Mollie will communicate how the next generation of credit union leaders can accomplish this very successfully.

As a former Young Professional Advisor and conference attendee, Jamaal Robinson, Mount Olive Baptist Church Federal Credit Union, says of his experience, "Often in life we are given certain opportunities to take the necessary steps in evolving ourselves. Being able to participate in Cornerstone Credit Union League’s Young Professional organization afforded me that opportunity. It allowed me to become a contributing member of an organization built to entice other young professionals to get active in the advancement of our industry. Attending the Young Professionals Conference gave me the opportunity to cross paths with many people who are looking to better themselves, while sharing the many different experiences and backgrounds we all have."

The Young Professionals Conference is open to credit union employees 35 and under.
