Meet the dream team that makes it all happen! Our board of directors is committed to working behind the scenes to give you the best 906 hYPe experience possible.

These ladies work together tirelessly to organize / host hYPe meetings, set up volunteer events, and make sure that our members' voices and opinions are represented.

They are super committed to the credit union movement and to supporting and lifting up their credit union peers. Katie, Samantha, and Andrea love meeting other young professionals and helping them grow and reach their professional goals. 

While attending several “Crash” events, Andrea Pepin saw a need for a CU focused Young Professionals group in the Upper Peninsula. In 2015, Andrea gathered a few more motivated, like-minded credit union employees and they started on a journey to make this vision a reality. This is where Lindsey Benson and Heather Perkins came in. With all of their combined efforts, 906 hYPe was created with the goal to connect and engage with CU peers who have the same passion and goals through personal and professional development.

Our goal is to provide the platform and the resources to help our members reach their professional goals. We give you the opportunity to meet and network with other credit union professionals. We have speakers who focus on topics such as communication, resume building, and interview skills as well as credit union based speakers and events. Various volunteer and community involvement opportunities will be provided throughout the year to help you make a difference in your community.

Say yes to your professional future, join the hYPe!
