Cornerstone League

Collaboration Program


Realizing the challenges many credit unions face in today’s environment and understanding that many credit union professionals, staff, and volunteers have a variety of resources and needs, the Cornerstone League developed the Collaboration Program to formalize collaborative partnerships.

The goal of the Collaboration Program is to provide opportunities for collaboration among interested credit unions and/or credit union individuals while sharing best practices and intellectual resources for career enhancement, technical guidance, leadership/management skill development, organizational modeling, and interpersonal/relationship skill-building. Participants choosing to take part in the program will indicate their desire to serve as either a mentor (provides guidance) or mentee (receives guidance).


The 2022 application deadline has passed. Check back in 2023.

Kick-Off Call

How It Works

  1. Participants will determine the role they wish to play in the Collaboration Program and register as a mentor or mentee.
  2. After the application window closes, Cornerstone will pair mentors with mentees and notify them of their corresponding match.
  3. Interested participants will take part in an introductory conference call and check-in calls hosted by the Cornerstone League.

After the introductory process, participants will then begin interactions designed to achieve the following:

  • Provide a sharing of best practices and information between participants.
  • Create a partnership environment that is conducive for the developmental growth of participants.
  • Proceed to collaborate as mentor/mentee for a time that fits the needs of the mentee.

We do not anticipate any expenses for participants.
