NOTE: This week your League hosted more than 40 emerging professionals in Richmond at our annual EMERGE conference. Two days of sessions covered a wide range of topics, including communication, advocacy, networking, soft skills, and career paths. It was awesome to see the future leaders of Virginia's credit unions coming together and building their skills. Thank you to all the attendees, vendor sponsors, speakers and organizers! Check out the League's various social channels for photos!
