Nominations for 2012 NWCUA Committees Due at Week’s End

Committees of the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) play an important role in Association governance, direction and policy formation. Member involvement on NWCUA committees helps ensure future success and advancement of the regional movement.

During recent town hall meetings and at last month’s Annual Convention and Business Meeting, the NWCUA reported on the work accomplished by the 17 committees and task forces in 2011—the inaugural year of the newly-merged Association. The work ahead continues, however, and further participation is encouraged.

The appointment of committees is the newly-seated Association chair’s first order of business following the Annual Business Meeting. The 2012 committee and sub-committee structure can be found here. On behalf of the chairman and the entire board of directors, the NWCUA encourages all of its members to consider serving in 2012.

Potential participants are asked to submit their interest using this online nomination form. It is important to note that recommendations for the 2012 NWCUA committees must be submitted even if the person being nominated has already served on a committee in the past. All committee recommendations or self-nominations must be submitted by Friday, Oct. 28, 2011 for consideration.

Chairman Bill Anderson will be working closely with board leadership and the executive office to finalize 2012 committee appointments and extend the invitation to the selected individuals in November. At that time, calendars and respective 2012 committee meeting dates can be vetted out among those newly-seated to committees for the year ahead. The full roster of 2012 committee appointments will be announced to the membership before year’s end. Finally, it is important to note that the current 2011 committee members continue to serve in their respective committees until the end of the calendar year.

Questions or concerns about the process should be directed to the NWCUA.

Reminder: Fall Governmental Affairs Forum Just Around the Corner
Governmental Affairs Forums have become a strategic staple and tactical opportunity. As an attendee, each member is also a participant, helping foster strategic discussions around the latest legislative and regulatory issues. Participation offers members a direct line to regulators and helps the Association understand issues relevant to individual credit unions while in turn allowing the NWCUA to better communicate threats, opportunities and concerns that may affect member credit unions.

Joining the NWCUA for its upcoming Governmental Affairs Forum on Nov. 2 will be Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services Manager Janet Powell, as well as and Washington Department of Financial Institutions Director of Credit Unions Linda Jekel and Program Manager Mike Delimont.

Providing an opportunity for open dialogue with regulators and a chance to get the latest updates on state and federal legislative issues, these events are a unique forum for everyone interested in governmental affairs.
