National Mentorship Program

Offered to high-potential employees, this program pairs industry leaders with employees identified as future leaders in the credit union industry.

Door Opens on March 15 for Applications to CCUA 2017 National Mentorship Program 

Since the initial launch of the National Mentorship Program (NMP) in 2010, well over 400 credit union employees have participated – including many mentors who return year after year due to the richness of the experience.

Registration for the 2017 National Mentorship Program is now open with two important changes! First, this year it includes a Women’s Mentorship Stream along with the longstanding Leadership Mentorship Stream. Second, the Commercial/Ag. Business Mentorship Stream is being incorporated into a new Business Professional Development Program scheduled for release this summer. It’s an eventful year! Watch for more information.

The last day to apply to both NMP streams is April 17, 2017. Make 2017 your year to either get involved or to encourage high potential employees to do so.

Right Time?  Right Program?  Right Fit?

There are few limits as to who can participate in the National Mentorship Program. Mentors and mentees can be in any operational area and will be matched based on several criteria including their objectives for their program, skills and experience. Note the following guidelines.

Leadership Stream
  • Mentors must be in a senior position and have the accumulated knowledge, wisdom and desire to nurture an employee somewhere within the system. Mentors should have a minimum of 2 years of experience in their current role; had success in “growing” employees and derive real satisfaction in doing so.
    
  •  Mentees are typically in a management or supervisory position where they consistently demonstrate and are recognized for their ability, engagement and aspiration to succeed in a key position. We recommend at least 2 years’ experience in a “leadership” role and have opportunities to develop these skills throughout the program.

Women's Stream
This stream is open to women who want to connect with and grow with and through another woman in the credit union system. Mentors and mentees can be in any operational area and will be matched based on several criteria including their objectives for their program, skills and experience and whether they are looking for a peer-to-peer or more traditional “mentor-mentee” relationship. Note the following guidelines:

  • Mentors will typically be in a senior role with the accumulated knowledge, wisdom and desire to share with and/or nurture a woman somewhere within the system. Mentors should have a minimum of 2 years’ of experience in “growing” employees and derive real satisfaction in doing so.
    
  •  Mentees are consistently recognized by their credit union for their ability, engagement and aspirations to succeed. They may or may not be in a leadership role at this time but have sufficient experience to demonstrate their capacity and to inform and guide what they want from this mentorship program.
APPLY NOW FOR THE NMP WOMEN'S STREAM

Due to the commitment, mentors and mentees in both streams must have their manager’s support.
