This initiative is designed to recognize and celebrate the Young Leaders throughout the Saskatchewan Credit Union System who inspire us. 

You may ask, who is eligible for these awards?  Great question!  Nominees must be between the ages of 18 to 35  OR  their years of experience in the financial services field plus age does not exceed 40 years.  Current SYL committee members are not eligible. 

We encourage you to nominate anyone that you believe fit in any of these four categories:

The Leadership Award

This award recognizes young leaders who excel in empowering people through inspiration, commitment and honest interactions of the highest quality.  

The Community Involvement Award

This award recognizes young leaders in the Credit Union system that have demonstrated an unyielding dedication to their communities through various volunteer efforts and are a testament to our collective concern for all of the communities where we live, work and enjoy. 

The Innovation and Collaboration Award

This award recognizes young leaders who love team work and are intensely curious and creative. Seeking to understand the “why”, challenge the status quo and invent new and unique ways to support our members, each other and the Credit Union System.   

The Member Impact Award

This award recognizes young leaders who have made a meaningful difference for a member of their Credit Union. Through their genuine and sincere interactions, they have made a lasting impression and significant impact in the life of their member.  

You’ll have the opportunity to explain why you have nominated the young leader for an award and add pictures or testimonials to each submission as well.  Once all nominations are complete, our Judges Panel will individually vote for their top choice in each category.  (SPOILER ALERT: We’ve got a group of your favourite CEOs and General Managers from around the province on the panel!).

The award winners will be announced during the 2019 SYL Retreat at Elk Ridge Resort on May 29th at a special evening ceremony.  The recipients will receive recognition at the event and through the SYL online and social media channels.  Oh, and they will also receive a pretty sweet prize too! We would love to see a number of the nominees at the Retreat this year!

Nominations will be open until May 3, 2019.  Please submit your nominations using the button below.

Good luck to all of the nominees. Please reach out to any of our SYL committee members if you have any questions.
