Engage and Retain Rising Leaders
Do you have talented staff under the age of 35? Are you looking for opportunities to hone and develop their leadership skills? c2c connects young professionals and identifies rising leaders.
Money’s on the table!
The Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) and Southwest CUNA Management School (SCMS) have joined forces to invest in the future of the credit union system through the SCMS c2c Scholarship – Connect to Collaborate!
The scholarship? Up to full tuition – The full amount of 2013 SCMS tuition paid by the student’s credit union will be reimbursed for one student. Odds are better than 1 in 55 to win! At the end of the 1st summer of SCMS, classmates vote on who among the under 35 age group exhibited the most leadership on campus. Simple majority wins. No application is needed. In the event of a tie, the scholarship will be split. The winner is announced during graduation ceremonies.
Who is eligible? Credit union professionals under the age of 30 as of July 1, 2013 who successfully complete the 1st summer session of SCMS.. The credit union must be affiliated with their state association or league.
What’s in it for the student?
What’s in it for the credit union?
To encourage and mentor “rising” credit union leaders, SCMS c2c also holds a casual chat for all SCMS students and alumni under the age of 35 (as of July 1, 2013) on July 16, after the annual alumni/student auction dinner. The under 35 set “circle up” with a mentor team to discuss what’s on their minds. Other students are welcome to listen and observe, gaining a better understanding of their younger staff and future employees.
A huge thank you goes out to Mark Arnold, Brent Dixon, Shawn Temple, and the PTP New Media/CU Swag team for helping to move C2C from concept to reality!
The future of the credit union movement relies on attracting, engaging and retaining young credit union leaders. SCMS is about investing in the future. We invite you to invest in the future of Under 35 leaders at your credit union. That's what Connect 2 Collaborate is all about.
First year students have an opportunity for their tuition reimbursed simply by being voted as the one who exhibited the most leadership skills among their peers.
All who stay for the chat have the opportunity to get an inside peak at what a group of under 35 credit union leaders think as they share their hopes, ideas, fears and concerns about the future of credit unions.
There is so much to learn from one another and invite you to Connect 2 Collaborate.
