CUES Emerge applicants are young leaders employed by a credit union. Through a selection process, 30 people were chosen to make up this year’s cohort for the CUES Emerge program. They spent a number of sessions learning from some of North America’s top educators, and followed them up with Mastermind sessions to discuss what they learned and how it can apply to a project at their credit union.
Applicants then took the additional step to write and submit a business case for that project. Five senior credit union executives made up a judging panel that reviewed the business cases and chose five Finalists to proceed to the Live Pitch Show on October 5. At the Live Pitch Show, the finalists will pitch their idea via a live stream, to an international audience. The judges will then select the winner to be named the CUES Emerging Leader.
Each of the top three winners will receive a tiered education and coaching package to support continued development and growth within the industry.
