Proudly supporting the leaders of tomorrow

We all know that our population is aging. One thing we don't hear much about however, is how our aging workforce will affect the leadership capacity within our organizations. As workers retire in increasing numbers, are we preparing the next generation to pick up the torch?

The problem is equally pressing in the nonprofit sector. One local community group, for example, has an average age of 75, and we suspect there are others with similar demographics. In order to sustain the vital work of our community organizations, we need to empower the leaders of tomorrow to step forward and contribute their ideas and energy in a meaningful way.

At UBCU, we're continually looking at ways to mentor, transfer knowledge and otherwise prepare our youth for leadership roles. Along with other credit unions across the province, we proudly support the YES (Youth Exellence Society), which works to build the skill set and resiliency of BC youth through leadership camps and other programs. Its long-term mission is one that we can all rally behind: creating supportive, inclusive communities that encourage us to challenge ourselves and create positive change.

If you're looking at retirement in the not-too-distant future, think about how you can start transferring the vast knowledge you've accumulated to the next generation of young leaders. And if you're and up-and-coming leader, start identifying opportunities for mentorship or more active involvement in your organization or community.

By proactively working together, we can harness the goodness of the next generation and achieve the goal of healthy, united communities.

3 reasons to "bank" with a credit union

It's sometimes surprising how many people are unaware of the key differences between credit unions and banks.

True, both types of institutions offer similar products and services, including deposits, loans, mortgages, investments and more. The fundamental difference, however, is that banks are for profit corporations, while credit unions are member-owned cooperatives whose sole purpose is to serve their member-owners.

Here are three ways that key difference plays out, and why you might want to consider "banking" with your local credit union.
  1. Local decision-making - At Union Bay Credit Union, all of our decisions are made right here in our local communities. That means your loan application (or anything else) is approved by someone who understands you and your community - not someone in a downtown Toronto tower.
  2. We're motivated by you; not profits Because credit unions are owned by their members rather than by shareholders driven by profit, our sole loyalty is to you, our member. Any profits are redistributed to our members via dividends, competitive rates and services, donations to community initiatives and bursaries to deserving local students.
  3. Depositors are 100% protected - As a credit union member, you receive unlimited depositor protection from the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation of BC.
When you join UBCU, you become part of a growing cooperative movement that's turning away from the ideology of profit for profit's sake and embracinig the values of equality, decision sharing and community building.
Protect yourself, your loved ones and your financial future.
