Registration has closed for the 2020 National Mentorship Program (NMP). The program pairs industry leaders with employees identified as future leaders in the credit union system. The program is fully funded by CCUA and offers mentorship opportunties across four streams in full digital format. The program opens each year in April and closes in November.

Mentorship streams

  • Director Stream: Collaborate and connect with directors from other provinces or credit unions. Earn up to 5 CE credits if you are an ACCUD (Accredited Canadian Credit Union Director) by being a mentor or mentee.
  • Digital Agility Stream: An opportunity for digital experts to step up and mentor colleagues. Gain new leadership skills and help others learn about today’s digital landscape.
  • Women’s Stream: The goal of this stream is to give women additional support and confidence to take that next career step.
  • Leadership Stream: This long-standing stream is open to leaders in senior positions wanting to mentor an employee in any operational area and those who are looking to build leadership capacity.

The program runs from May – November each year and the average time commitment is 2 hours per month.
