Talent & Ambition
The National Credit Union Young Leaders Award recognizes young leaders in Canada’s credit union system. The Award helps identify the best and brightest young employees, motivate them, and publicize their accomplishments to inspire others. In creating this Award, Canadian Central’s Board of Directors helps national leaders demonstrate strong support for young leadership.
Let's Take a Look
Think about the young people—35 years of age or less—working in your organization. Do you have any rising stars? Do they have well-defined accomplishments? Have they tackled any unusually large responsibilities in your credit union/caisse populaire or provincial/regional Central? Each year, up to five finalists may be chosen for the National Credit Union Young Leaders Award, and only one of these finalists will be selected as the scholarship recipient and receive tuition plus travel costs (economy class) to attend a leadership development program at a recognized university in Canada ($10,000 maximum). The Young Leader’s nominator must submit a signed letter describing why their candidate deserves to be an Award finalist.
A maximum of five finalists will be sponsored to attend as guests* of Canadian Central at the 2016 Canadian Conference for Credit Union Leaders, April 30 to May 4, 2016 in Saskatoon, SK. Each finalist will have a personal interview with the panel of judges. The finalists will jointly develop and deliver a workshop at the conference. All finalist will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony and one finalist will be chosen as the 2016 National Credit Union Young Leaders Award scholarship recipient.^
