Why did you choose to be part of the YPN Steering Committee?
After completing the CU Futures Course, the YPN was a great opportunity to continue to engage with fellow YPs within the credit union sector. A network for young professionals is really important as it not only gives you the chance to gain knowledge and training within your sector, but also grants you the chance to meet new people and make lifelong friends.
Why is the YPN important to you?
The network is important to me as it gives me the sense of belonging to a group within the sector. Without the network, I would not have had opportunities to meet the people I have met as I struggle with introducing myself to others.
What have you gained from being a member of the YPN Steering Committee?
I have gained confidence in that I can speak to others that I have met through the network. I have gained knowledge from people within and out with the sector by attending the events that the YPN have hosted.
What advice would you give to people considering wanting to get involved in the YPN?
100% go for it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
