Wis. Young Pros Council gets CU orientation
MADISON, Wis. (11/22/10)--The Wisconsin Credit Union League’s Young Professional Council met at the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Madison offices Thursday to learn more about the trade association and supporting organizations located on the CUNA campus that provide services and ideas to credit unions to help improve member service.

Speakers from CUNA, CUNA Mutual Group, the National Credit Union Foundation, World Council of Credit Unions and Filene Research Institute met with nearly 20 council members during the all-day meeting, which included a tour of the campus. “As a young professional, we don’t have as many opportunities to interact with industry leaders. It was great to get a statewide, national and global perspective of the credit union movement,” said Dan Winters, council member and lending supervisor/branch manager at Cooperative CU, Racine. The council consists of credit union staff ages 35 and younger from all areas of the state. Its goal is to promote its members' personal and professional growth, and strengthen the network of young credit union staff and volunteers in Wisconsin. “It was great to see the worldwide impact credit unions have and take a step back from our daily interactions with members to realize what credit unions, as an entire movement, do for their members and communities,” said Dominic Sloma, council member and operations leader at Best Advantage CU, Brillion. The council's next meeting is set for Jan. 26 in Madison and will coincide with the league's State Government Affairs Conference.
