For the third year, the YPN will be launching the Reverse Crash Program. The reverse crash program will be open to all “seasoned” credit union employees and volunteers that are 41 and older. Do you think anyone at your credit union has what it takes to be a reverse crasher? Let them know about this opportunity.

The network reception will take place at Rock’n’Bowl in Lafayette from 6 – 9 pm on Friday, May 3. This will be a great opportunity to meet your fellow young credit union professionals and network in a fun, casual setting. Plus, bowling, food and drinks come complimentary with registration! There will also be a complimentary bus running to and from the hotel, and Top Cats start playing at Rock’n’Bowl at 9 pm! If you’re not attending workshop, you can still attend the reception for $40.

Barran's Bears is a non-profit that provides Teddy Bears to Police Officers and First Responders to utilize at scenes where children are faced with "adult problems" such as Domestic Violence, illness, injury, etc. The organization will be picking up a donation from us at workshop!

For every bear that you donate at the YP Workshop, you will receive a ticket to win prizes! Bears that are between 12 and 14 inches work best for Barran’s Bears (roughly the size of a build a bear).

They ask for new bears but VERY gently used is okay too. Brown bears are very popular and can cover both boys and girls. They also accept bears in bulk at a discounted price so if you are unable to pick up a bear, you will receive an entry to win a prize for every $10 donated.

Add a new shirt to your registration for $15. We will distribute all shirts at workshop registration! If you are not attending workshop, you can still order a shirt.

Please follow the workshop registration link for that purchase option!
