WYCUP Affiliates Council

Connecting young professionals through a world of financial cooperatives.


The WYCUP Affiliates Council is a quarterly virtual gathering of young professionals connected through their financial cooperatives. We come together to highlight professional journeys and explore how financial cooperatives are empowering young employees and members around the world. It's a great place to get new perspectives on our shared challenges and consider new opportunities for collaboration. 

In 2022, the WYCUP Affiliates Council will follow a thematic journey that spotlights the efforts of emerging leaders and shares impactful initiatives that drive professional development and empower youth. These interactive sessions include breakout discussions where you can explore the issues with your peers around the world.    

Participation in the WYCUP Affiliates Council is open to all, but is designed specifically for employees of financial cooperatives under 40 years of age and their advocates.
