Seven Principles Blog
Blog Home All Blogs
In 1844, a small group of weavers from Rochdale, England created the blueprint for how their newly-formed cooperative would operate and serve the local community. These values, known as the Seven Cooperative Principles, serve as the operating guidebook for credit unions and cooperatives throughout the world. This blog was created to honor that legacy and to showcase the everyday efforts of credit unions in the Carolinas that embody the cooperative mission and purpose.

Updated: Monday, August 22, 2016

Taylor West, a Members CU member services representative, has been named the CUaware Protégé for the Northwest Chapter. West will compete in the CUaware Protégé Finals Competition in October.

The chapter held its competition Thursday evening, August 18. Nearly 20 representatives were on hand. Kiah Tyndall of Winston-Salem FCU also represented her credit union at the event.    

The 23-year-old West would like to one day be a credit union CEO. As a proud millennial, she is excited to share the credit union difference with her generation. She says technology is the key. "Technologically savvy millennials will eventually be the future," West said " therefore being able to connect them now keeps credit unions one step ahead."

West holds a degree in phlebotomy from Davidson Community College. She and her husband Kenneth have a nine-month-old girl.

The CUaware Protégé Chapter Competitions are now complete. The CUaware Protégé Finals Competition will be held during the MACCU 2016 Fall Conference in Asheville in October.

Updated: Tuesday, August 23, 2016

The Piedmont Chapter announced that Gregory Young, a project coordinator at Carolinas Telco FCU, has been named the CUaware Protégé. Young will compete in the CUaware Protégé Finals Competition in October.

The chapter held its CUaware Protégé event Thursday evening, August 18. More than 20 credit union representatives attended and heard Young's five minute verbal presentation. 


Young, who is 30, views millennials as a natural fit for credit unions - as both employees and as member-owners. "We are not afraid to question outdated business practices, and living and working through the recent economic recession has also taught us the value of financial thrift," Young says. "Ultimately, what we can do is help create and support an adaptive credit union industry influenced by millennials, for millennials and beyond."     

The Bassett, Virginia native has earned credits in economics from Christopher Newport College. He enjoys repairing computers in his spare time, as well as gardening and kayaking.  

CUaware Protégé Chapter Competitions are now complete. The CUaware Protégé Finals Competition will be held during the MACCU 2016 Fall Conference in Asheville in October.

Reminder: application deadlines for P&P scholarships, mentor program fast approaching

Posted By Jeff Hardin, Tuesday, August 16, 2016
Updated: Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching, and with it comes the "unofficial" end to summer. The weekend also marks the end of the application process for two exciting events as well - scholarship opportunities to attend the Principles & Philosophy Conference, as well as the CUaware Protégé Mentor program for 2016-2017. 

Scholarships are available for the 2016 Principles & Philosophy Conference, which will be held October 18-20, 2016 in Sophia, NC. Staff at credit unions of $125-million and under in assets are welcomed to apply.The scholarships include lodging, food and all conference materials. Scholarship application forms may be found on the conference registration page. The application deadline is Friday, September 2.

The CUaware Protégé Mentor program connects credit union professionals age 35 and under with a mentor for a period of one year. Through a process that is collaboratively designed by the mentor and protégé, a plan and goals are developed, and a strategy for maintaining regular contact is created.   

The program is flexible and dependent upon the needs of both the Protege and the Mentor. It is a terrific professional development opportunity for emerging credit union leaders, as well as an opportunity for experienced professionals to invest in the future success of the credit union movement.

The application deadline is Thursday, September 1. Complete details about the program as well as application forms may be found on the CCUL web site. If you have questions about either of these opportunities, please contact Jeff Hardin (800-822-8859, ext. 563).

Miracle Jeans Day is less than a month away—on Wednesday, September 14! Have you registered yet? In 2015, 357 credit unions, plus the Carolinas Credit Union League, dressed with purpose for Miracle Jeans Day, helping sick kids all across North Carolina and South Carolina.
