"Young professionals are the future of our industry," said Ronaldo Hardy, chairman of the YPN Steering Committee. "To have 85 people willing to give up their Saturday is a testament to the strength of the credit union movement."

A full day of sessions and networking opportunities began with a presentation from Kathi Gill, CEO of Neighbors FCU, Baton Rouge. Gill shared her career experiences as it progressed from teller and to leader of one of the state's largest credit unions.

Matt Monge, chief culture officer at Mazuma CU, Kansas City, Mo., facilitated a networking session, then gave a keynote presentation on the culture of credit unions and how it relates to young professionals.

Other session topics included credit union advocacy, a review of league resources, lending, marketing and leadership.

To increase young credit union professionals' involvement in political advocacy, LCUL and the YPN awarded two scholarships to attend the League's Governmental Affairs Conference in Baton Rouge, May 14-15. The league will cover registration costs and the YPN will cover accommodations. All YPN workshop attendees were eligible for the drawing.
