CUReach courts young professionals in Ill.
NAPERVILLE, Ill. (3/10/14)--It's not only today's work that's critical to the credit union movement. The industry also must keep an eye leveled toward the future.
 
The Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) has launched CU*Reach, a program that will immerse young professionals into the world of credit unions and prepare them for a future in the industry.   
 
"CU*Reach is a great opportunity for professional development, as well as a chance for young professionals to recognize their potential within the credit union movement," said Jennifer Riebold, a member of the Illinois Youth Involvement Council's Young Professionals Advisory Committee, the group developing this initiative.
 
The program offers opportunities in networking, mentoring, education, leadership development and community involvement. The committee in charge of the campaign also plans to put together local and statewide specific programs.
 
Organizers have built CU*Reach to serve individuals ages 40 and under; however ICUL representatives say there are plenty of opportunities for those over the age of 40 to get involved through the league's CU*Reach Champion program.
