ABCUL's Young Professionals Network

ABCUL's Young Professionals Network - A Place to Learn and Share


Launched at the 2019 ABCUL Annual Conference, the ABCUL Young Professionals Network is the national platform for young credit union leaders to engage and promote the credit union movement. It provides a robust and dynamic environment for young credit union professionals to connect, learn and live out their co-operative values. It also crucially acts as a mechanism to develop young leaders and retain their talent within the British movement.

A priority of ABCUL is to support a Young Professionals Network (YPN) that has been operating for two years and has successfully held three face-to-face events and a week-long series of online sessions for members focusing on the unique role of younger professionals in shaping the future of our sector.

The Network is led by a volunteer Steering Committee of seven committed young professionals and is led by Chair, Paul Norgrove (CEO, Serve & Protect Credit Union) with support from the Association.

Meet our Committee below:

Debbie Smith-Hands – Pennine Community Credit Union

Jaspreet Kaur - Penny Post Credit Union

The Committee is a group of volunteers who worked together with ABCUL to bring the Network to life and have produced a short highlight video below which sets out our story so far.
