  • MERIDEN, Conn. (9/27/12)--The Credit Union League of Connecticut's recently formed Young Professionals group gathered for its second outing, this time at Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford for wine tasting and discussing the future of the credit union movement in the state. More than 20 credit union representatives explored upcoming events in government relations, leadership, collaboration  and cost-savings analysis.  The event "was a great opportunity to bring people together and talk about credit unions and what sort of challenges we face as young professionals," said David Hinchey, marketing manager at Wepawaug-Flagg FCU and a member of the group's executive committee.  The group, which will build on the strengths of its members, plans to network every month and meet around the state to allow more credit union employees to participate.  Possible future gatherings include an event pairing a CEO and young professional, topic-specific meetings for examination, education sessions, exploring what works and what doesn't, and strategies for attracting more young people into the movement as members.  (Photo provided by the Credit Union League of Connecticut) …
