National Young Leaders Committee

The objectives of the National Young Leaders Committee (NLC) are:  

  • To focus on developing future leaders, meeting future talent and leadership needs of the credit union system and on realizing the vision of the credit union system becoming the number one employer for young leaders in the financial services sector in Canada.
  • Expose young and emerging leaders to broader system wide issues to increase awareness, understanding and engagement.
  • Provide a voice for young and emerging leaders on credit union issues.
  • Expand professional development, experiential learning, and networking opportunities to all young and emerging members.
  • Help the credit union system realize the benefits of developing highly skilled young and emerging leaders. 


Our Vision: Strengthening the Credit Union System by Bridging Generations of Leadership

The National Young Leaders Committee is a bridge between today’s young leaders and the leadership roles that will play a crucial role in the success of Canada’s credit union system of tomorrow.

We develop tools, resources, and networks to support today’s up-and-coming credit union leaders, equipping them with the skills and competencies they need to serve the credit union system in positions of influence, addressing head-on the challenges and changes facing our industry.

The NYLC will strive to provide today’s young leaders with a collaborative platform to share their perspectives on system challenges and opportunities, ensuring that the next generation of senior leaders leaves their mark on the credit union system of the future.
