Thankful, encouraged, inspired, powerful, giddy, connected, honored and proud

8 reasons CU rising stars should participate in this year’s Next Top Credit Union Exec challenge

“I sit here, trying to put into words my experience with Next Top Credit Union Exec and the CEO/Executive Team Network conference,” wrote Shannon Cahoon, the winner of last year’s challenge, in a blog post shortly after the culminating event. “Even now, weeks after the final thank-yous and good-byes, I struggle to coherently explain how it makes me feel.”

Community outreach coordinator at $1 billion Fibre Federal Credit Union, Longview, Wash., Cahoon goes on in the post to name eight key feelings she experienced: thankful, encouraged, inspired, powerful, giddy, connected, honored and proud.

For eight years running, the CUES Next Top Credit Union Exec challenge has been making a positive difference in the professional lives of the young credit union professionals (non-CEOs, age 35 and under) who take it on, boosting their enthusiasm for credit unions and their confidence in their ability to build careers in the CU industry.
