 Credit Unions for Kids is seeking new members to join “under 40” advisory board

[Salt Lake City] (January 15, 2013)— The Young Leaders for Kids Board (YL4Kids), an “under 40” national advisory board for Credit Unions for Kids, is currently seeking energetic, dedicated, and capable individuals from the credit union movement to join their team.

The purpose of Young Leaders for Kids is to create, grow and inspire Credit Unions for Kids enthusiasts among the next generation of credit union leaders.  The group is made up of individuals under forty years of age who hail from credit unions, leagues and industry partners.  As such, the YL4Kids Board benefits from a broad spectrum of talent, experience, perspective, and reach in the credit union movement. The group began in early 2010.

“Over the past two and a half years, the Young Leaders for Kids Board has been instrumental in the success of our CU4Kids program nationwide,” said Joe Dearborn, senior director of corporate partnerships for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “The team’s efforts helped us engage thousands of credit unions and reach new fundraising heights in 2012. They are working on some new, exciting fundraising ideas, and I look forward to seeing their impact in 2013.”

Applications are now being accepted and are due by February 1, 2013. For more information about YL4Kids or to apply, click here.
