The Mountain West Credit Union Association is very supportive of young leaders. Through the Mountain West Young Credit Union Professionals (MWYCUP) Committee, MWCUA advocates to educate and empower the youth of the credit union movement. I believe this will have lasting positive impact on the success of credit unions in our region.

The partnership with MWCUA has proven to be valuable for us in many ways. I was fortunate to be one of the first to attend the MWCUA Leadership Institute in Colorado. The program provided more than I had expected, and I still use the lessons learned and materials in my work and personal life. Since 2013 six of my Managers and Supervisors have graduated from the program.

Through its Government Relations programs, the Mountain West Credit Union Association is a powerful voice for our members. Burdensome regulations and the threat of taxation make political advocacy more important now than ever.
