Additionally, the Programme is geared towards succession planning and preparing youth Members for positions in Management, by exposing them to actual information on the operations and functions of the Credit Union. The Junior Executives are therefore able to develop and strengthen their skills in several areas, while acquiring the knowledge that will equip them to one day become leaders of SECU Credit Union.
The first President of the Junior Executive was appointed to the Board of Directors to serve as the Assistant Secretary during the 2012/2013 term, and the Secretary of the Junior Executive was appointed to serve as the Assistant Secretary of the Board of Directors during the 2013/2014 term.
Since the Programme’s inception, Junior Executives have undertaken several projects, the most notable of which, was a financial seminar titled, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” Attended by the under-35 Members of the Credit Union, the Seminar informed our young Members about saving and planning, and gave career guidance and financial management tips.
The Junior Executives’ projects also included working with underprivileged children and coordinating health-walks.
