Debbie Smith-Hands, from Pennine Community Credit Union and The North West Youth Forum- another new ABCUL initiative to engage the next generation – said: “The network will bring training and development opportunities for young people working in the sector and a platform for our future credit union leaders to connect with like-minded people. These networks are vital in order to retain young talent in our sector and I would urge all credit unions with staff members that fit the criteria to encourage them to get involved”.
ABCUL’s Head of Member Services, Rosanna Donovan, added: “I am particularly excited to see the positive developments in engaging younger staff through the forums and am delighted a number of them will be joining us in Manchester”.
The conference offers a programme for people from every size and type of credit union. It also is a great opportunity for people wanting to learn more about credit unions, their work and their potential.
ABCUL would like to thank CUNA Mutual Group for their continued support and sponsorship at the ABCUL Annual Conference 2018
