CEO finds value in WYCUP program
MADISON, Wis. (5/23/11)--Since its inception in 2001, more than 125 young credit union leaders have been a part of World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) Young Credit Union People (WYCUP) scholarship program, which promotes international education and networking opportunities for credit union professionals and volunteers age 35 and under.

June 14 is the deadline to nominate rising stars in the international credit union movement. It may be a first-time nomination or one in a line of multiple WYCUP winners from a credit union, as with Robert Keogh, CEO at Community CPS Australia in Adelaide, South Australia, said WOCCU. “At Community CPS Australia we have been fortunate enough to have two of our young leaders awarded with the WYCUP scholarship--Cas Scott in 2010 and Nick May in 2008,” Keogh said, adding that nominating “potential young leaders for the WYCUP award is a great opportunity to raise the profile of your credit union within industry groups and recognize the efforts of your young leaders.” Nominations are being accepted for individuals under the age of 35 who have made significant contributions within their own credit union system-- locally, regionally or nationally. All WYCUP nominees will be formally recognized at this year’s World Credit Union Conference, July 24-27 in Glasgow, Scotland, and invited to participate in events specifically for WYCU attendees. Events include an all-day educational session and lunch with the WOCCU board of directors. During the awards ceremony, five nominees will receive all-expense-paid scholarships to the 2012 World Credit Union Conference in Gdañsk, Poland. “The WYCUP program has provided our young leaders with international insights and contacts that can be used for collaboration on our credit union's projects, along with invaluable leadership skills and the confidence to make a difference,” Keogh said. “The WYCUP program has also enhanced Cas' and Nick's career paths, and they both hold senior positions within Community CPS Australia.” For more information, use the link, or contact Liliana Tangwall at or by calling 1-608-395-2043.
