Feel free to get creative here – this nominee doesn’t have to be in a public facing role!
Innovation & Collaboration Award (NEW FORMAT/CRITERIA):
This year, we are trying something a little different (or…innovative if you will).
We are asking you, our brilliant credit union young leaders, to take a brainstorming mindset and apply it to a credit union obstacle. We asked our SK CU CEO/Manager community for some examples of problems that credit unions or the CU system are facing. Also, you may be spotting an obstacle in your own world that you would like to address instead.
Be bold and creative. All the things are on the table!
