NEMACOLIN, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) recently named Kristine Yori, Erie Federal Credit Union (Erie FCU) assistant bayfront office branch manager, as the PCUA “Youth Ambassador” representative for 2018.
The PCUA held its Youth Ambassador Contest during its “CONNECT 2018” Annual conference held at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort on May 20 – 22. The PCUA first developed the Credit Union Youth Ambassador of Pennsylvania Contest in 1976 to help young adults learn about the history, philosophy and operation of credit unions.
Yori represented the Erie Chapter of Credit Unions in this statewide competition. She competed against four other Pennsylvania Credit Union Chapter representatives. Yori spoke on the topic of “Why Belong,” in which she discussed reasons for why membership in a credit union is so meaningful. Her professional and engaging talk awarded her the PCUA Youth Ambassador title.
As the youth ambassador representative for Pennsylvania, Yori will continue to promote youth marketing, as well as the benefits of the contest. She will speak at Association-sponsored education sessions and leadership conferences, and attend chapter meetings and other special events. The state winner also serves as a role model to encourage young people to participate in their credit unions.
