Wisconsin's Credit Unions Unite for Good
Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation

The Young Professionals (YP) Network is an open group for Wisconsin credit union staff and volunteers - age 35 and younger - that focuses on providing career development opportunities, networking and education. To date, there are more than 780 YPs from 86 credit unions. The YP Network is managed by the Wisconsin Credit Union League and under the guidance of its Advisory Board.

It’s free to join and there are plenty of ways to get involved.

Our Mission

The YP Network aims to provide value not only to young professionals but to credit unions and their collective mission. Through our group, we aim to:

Connect...

young professionals with like-minded peers and encourage idea sharing and collaboration among them.

Engage...

young professionals with training (such as our popular boot camps), networking events and other opportunities that provide resources and workable knowledge they can bring back to their credit union.

Retain talent...

within our movement. Young professionals have the ability to bring energy and new ideas to credit unions. For the long-term prosperity of your credit union and the movement as a whole, we need to provide support to encourage young talent to learn, grow and gain an appreciation for credit unions and the work they do everyday.
