NWCUA Convention Kicks Off with Annual Business Meeting

True to its name, the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) 2011 Convention and Annual Business Meeting will waste no time getting down to business, as the Annual Business Meeting itself, in conjunction with keynote speaker Bill Cheney’s opening remarks, holds the distinction of being the first official item on the Convention agenda.

The Annual Business Meeting is one of the most significant ways through which the NWCUA is able to personally interact with its members. Scheduled for 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the meeting is your opportunity to hear about what’s been going on at the Association level during the past year—both in terms of opportunities and challenges—and will cover a number of important topics. In addition to announcing board leadership for the coming year, the meeting will include updates on the dues structure and the status of the service corporations and Foundations, in addition to other new business items. There is no charge to attend, but pre-registration is required.

The Annual Business Meeting will then be followed by Cheney’s opening keynote speech. With a quarter-century’s experience within the credit union movement, Cheney became the President and CEO of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) in July 2010. CUNA is the nation’s largest and most influential advocacy group for credit unions, representing most of nation’s nearly 7,800 credit unions.

After his address, Cheney will join NWCUA President Troy Stang in presenting the Advocacy Awards to credit unions and individuals going above and beyond in advocating on behalf of the credit union movement and lobbying government for beneficial regulations for credit union members.
