NWCUA Convention Website Goes Live, Registration Now Open

The online home for the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) 2012 Convention and Annual Business Meeting is now live, offering the first chance to register for Convention and learn more about this year’s speakers, sessions and schedules.

“We are very excited about this year’s Convention and about the opportunities it will bring for the credit unions in our region,” said Nancy Pullen, the NWCUA’s senior director of training and development. “Having the site live means that we are finally able to fully share everything that will make this year’s Convention unique.”

Scheduled for Oct. 2-4 in Vancouver, Wash., the 2012 Convention’s theme is “Innovation. Action. Growth.” Building on the unique market landscape that has unfolded for the credit union movement recently and the tremendous opportunities for sustained growth, the theme reflects the belief of many that the entire credit union system has reached a strategic inflection point.

The 2012 Convention will include three keynote speakers: Neil Goldman, senior partner of Goldman Consulting & Strategy, Inc.; Arnold Kuijpers, director of corporate affairs for Rabobank Nederland; and Jeff Russell, who serves as senior advisor for The Members Group, president and CEO of TMG Financial Services, and chief strategy officer for Affiliates Management Company. More details on all three speakers and their sessions can now be found online.

Registration information is also now available for the first time, as are details about the myriad events planned for the week and an opportunity to support Credit Unions for Kids. Scholarships are available through the Northwest Credit Union Foundation.

The Convention home page features a polar clock literally counting down the seconds to Convention’s opening moments. The full site went live yesterday, and more details will be continuously added in the coming weeks.
