WINN to Help Credit Unions ‘Win’ on Regulation

Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) members have an advocate in the house. Jaycee Winn has recently joined NWCUA as director of regulatory advocacy. Based in the Beaverton, Ore., office, Winn will help members keep abreast of federal and state regulatory initiatives, and design and implement advocacy efforts on behalf of The Association and its members. She brings a wealth of advocacy experience to her new position.

Jaycee worked for Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho and has spent most of her career in DC addressing issue-advocacy, as well as political and public affairs campaigns.

A native of LaGrande, Oregon, Jaycee says she was growing tired of the east coast grind and anxious to bring her skill set back to the Pacific Northwest.

“You really learn how to deal with multiple complex issues, whether you are a congressional staffer or working for a large public affairs firm,” said Winn. “I believe the experience has been invaluable in helping me serve our members by ensuring their voices are heard on the ever-changing regulatory environment.”

Winn is busy working through the volumes of new and proposed financial regulation, and is particularly engaged in the issue of interchange regulation. She works closely with Association Senior Vice President Stacy Augustine in the Federal Way office to develop advocacy opportunities targeted at both Washington, Oregon and federal rules and regulations.

“I am very excited to be working for such great people and a sound, member-focused organization,” Winn says. “I am particularly looking forward to meeting our credit union members throughout Oregon and Washington, and delivering a unified voice on issues important to the credit union community.”

Jaycee is a graduate of the College of Idaho with a degree in political science. She makes her home in Beaverton.
