Jamie Dedmon has joined the Northwest Credit Union Association as its community manager, a role that will help grow, advance and provide a sense of community for the NWCUA’s 165 member credit unions.
As part of the Association’s communications team, Dedmon will be responsible for:
- Providing strategic direction and management of the Association’s Professional Networking Councils;
- Managing the overall Credit Union for Kids program;
- Managing the Credit Union Chapter outreach strategies;
- Developing and implementing a comprehensive outreach program focused on small credit unions;
- Developing and implementing an outreach program which may include Western CUNA Management School, CUDE, Young Credit Union Professionals and the World Council of Credit Union’s International Development program.
“The community mission of credit unions is right up there with their financial missions. Our Credit Unions for Kids legacy, our chapters and our professional networking councils are all largely member driven, and Jamie will be a helpful liaison to those communities,” says Lynn Heider, the NWCUA’s vice president for public relations and communications. “In addition, she will help us to better identify ways we can help our small credit unions to thrive. The position of community manager is new to the Association. In finding a credit union professional who has filled so many roles inside a credit union, we’re better positioned to serve our member credit unions.”
Dedmon has a bachelor’s degree in business administration/marketing management from Park University. While her professional career has been immersed in marketing, Dedmon started her credit union journey in 2005 working for STCU in Spokane. She’s held a variety of positions in community development, branch support and training. A true believer in giving back, Dedmon served four years as a board member for the Spokane Chapter of Credit Unions.
Dedmon says her move to the Association was the next logical step in her career. Passionate about the credit union movement, she says it’s an honor to be a catalyst in bringing a sense of community through her community manager role.
Dedmon and her husband, Mike, recently relocated to Seattle to be closer to family. Dedmon says that she and her husband are excited to be in the Seattle area and look forward to finding their place of belonging.
Dedmon will be based in NWCUA’s Washington office. She can be reached by email at email@example.com and by phone at 206.340.4814.
