The BCEL is a free, not-for-profit, cooperative network of your credit union peers who have a common goal to help enrich, engage, and inspire young leaders and make a positive impact on the credit union system.

If your Credit Union has its own young/emerging leader program the BCEL network will complement your existing program. Our network hosts webinars, think tanks and an annual young leaders conference to help you connect with peers across the credit union system.  


As of January 2024, the age restriction for members has been eliminated to foster a more inclusive and diverse approach to leadership development. Staff of BC Credit Unions or their system partners of any age are now eligible to apply for membership. Please note that our content delivery strategies will be mostly catered to individuals who are new to the Credit Union system or who are 45 years or younger.  

If you are a looking to connect with credit union peers, gain leadership skills and development that will grow and strengthen the BC Credit Union system, join us. You will have access to webinars, think tanks, and other exclusive emerging leader events including our annual conference with credit union influencers and CEO’s. Sign up with your work email today!
