A unique professional development experience exclusively for young and emerging
credit union leaders.
The CU NextGen Intensive is an exciting leadership development program
hosted by the National Young Leaders Committee of Credit Union Central of

develop their young and emerging leaders by preparing them to be the

executive management experiences and develop skills they can apply to
strategic planning and personal leadership. A managed cohort size gives
participants personal access to workshop leaders, facilitates networking and
leverages peer learning through rapid relationship building with other
future system leaders.
Prior to attending the Intensive, it is recommended that participants will
