It's that time of year again as CUES 2014 Next Top Credit Union Exec competition is in full swing. So we invited the competition's creator, Currency Marketing's Tim McAlpine, and last year's winner, Northwest Credit Union Association's Amanda Brenneman-Brown, on the show to give us the inside scoop on why this competition has grown into quite an important, annual event: to keep this industry young for a prosperous future.
Tim explains how the NTCUE, now in its fifth year, came to be and what its goals are. He also added that, with today's mass exodus of CU CEOs, now is a prime time for young professionals to move up the ladder and make a difference. Amanda discussed how her "network exploded" and the numerous career benefits ($20K in benefits!) she has already experienced since last year's win.
Based on our chat with Amanda and Tim, any young professional looking for a leg up in their career would be remiss to pass up this competition's experience and benefits. Enjoy the show -- and don't forget to vote!
