League kicks off young professionals group with cruise
MERIDEN, Conn. (8/10/11)--The Sea Mist, a cruise boat, was filled with young (under 40) credit union professionals representing Connecticut's credit unions at their kick-off meet and greet to exchange possible ideas for the future of the state's credit union movement.

The newly formed Young Professionals Program of the Credit Union League of Connecticut cruised among Thimble Islands off the coast of Stony Creek, Conn.

At the event, league President/CEO Tony Emerson discussed the overall function of the program, and  Kelly Fuhlbrigge, league vice president, government relations, discussed the importance of getting involved in grassroots efforts, political fundraising and the government relations role of the league.

Many attendees "had no idea that we did so much on both the state and federal level and they could play an important role in shaping the future of the credit union movement," Fuhlbrigge said.

The group agreed to form a committee to discuss future events and work to enhance growth and participation.
