Young Professionals Group
The LSCU Young Professionals Group (YPG) is made up of young credit union professionals, 40 years of age and younger, in Alabama and Florida working to positively impact the credit union movement and the communities they serve through networking, mentorships, and collective action. The goals of this program are improved industry awareness, increased knowledge exchange and professional development, and strengthening the collaborative spirit of young credit union professionals.
Please note that the Young Professional Groups now fall under an initiative of the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation. Any questions or concerns regarding the Young Professionals should be directed to SECUF Director Juli Lewis by email.
A Young Professional Council was appointed in 2017 to oversee the Young Professional program and to assist with the coordination of events. Learn more about the YP Coordinating Council.

YP Sponsorship Program
Many of our largest credit unions have expressed an interest in leaving a larger footprint within the credit union movement. After much thought and consideration, the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation has created an annual campaign where our industry leaders can contribute a sponsorship of $2500 that will directly impact the future leaders within the credit union world, our Young Professionals of Florida and Alabama.
“I’m sure we all believe that credit unions are where we are today in part due to the cooperative nature of the credit union movement – institutions large and small, working together and supporting each other. I’ve personally seen how large credit unions share resources and expertise with their smaller brethren, with the goal of insuring that our business remains viable for years to come. I firmly believe that we all have a role to play in the sustainability of our industry, and should be looking for opportunities that will accomplish that goal.”
“Developing future leaders is certainly one of the most important aspects of future industry success, and the Young Professionals Groups becoming active around our two states hold great promise in helping to accomplish that. At a recent meeting of the Trustees of the Southeast Credit Union Foundation, we discussed soliciting larger credit unions for financial support of the YPG’s. Our credit union is therefore contributing $2,500 to the Foundation for the support of the YP effort, and I encourage you to consider doing the same, or at least some amount to assure the YP effort is successful.Please consider making this investment in our movement’s future,” Steve Swofford, President/CEO, Alabama CU.
