The Mountain West Young Credit Union Professionals has launched the Second Annual Outstanding Young Professionals Award. If you have a Young Professional that demonstrates leadership, creative thinking, and passion for credit unions and our values, nominate them to be recognized with other young leaders throughout our three state Association. (Application Deadline Friday, June 14)
Nominees must know they are being nominated, because all nominees will be contacted by the Mountain West Credit Union Association to complete a series of follow-up questions as a part of the nomination process. Nominees’ responses to these questions are part of the selection criteria and will be due on a strict deadline. Late responses will not be accepted, and the nominee will not be further considered.
In addition to the questions mentioned above, the following selection criteria will be used. The best candidates will demonstrate a balanced blend of each of these criteria. Because all criteria will be considered equally, the selection committee will be seeking candidates whose achievements and background represent as many of these elements as possible.
- Leadership accomplishment
- Creative Thinking
- Professional accomplishment
- Professional development or business goal
- Achievement and passion in building on the credit union principle
- Community organization, action or event
