Get the Latest Movement Updates at Amplify Convention

As consumers’ financial needs change in response to economic and technological trends, and as the legislative and regulatory landscape moves in its tectonic shifts, the credit union movement continues to adapt in order to best support credit unions in providing value to their members and communities.

This October 6-8 in Portland, Oregon, the latest movement news and insights will flow from the stage at the NWCUA’s Amplify Convention, and Northwest credit union leaders will have a front row seat. One topic that will be addressed is the evolution of the credit union system.

Kicking off Amplify that Tuesday afternoon, the first session will include CUNA President and CEO Jim Nussle, NCUA Board Member Rick Metsger, and Mark Meyer, CEO of Filene Research Institute. Each one brings long experience and a unique perspective on the credit union movement.

Nussle addresses Amplify attendees for the first time, having just completed his first year in the leadership role—a year in which policy advancement, collective action, and market share reached new heights, and during which the ways in which the movement organized, engaged, and executed as a system were under careful study. 

Then on Thursday morning credit union leaders will hear from NWCUA Board Chair Jack Fallis and NWCUA President and CEO Troy Stang, who also serves on the CUNA Board of Directors.

Last week the CUNA Board considered the System Structure and Governance Task Force report. The Board concluded that advocacy is central to the mission of the credit union movement, and that the dual-membership system supports the success of that mission.

Trade publication CUToday published several articles covering the CUNA Board’s consideration of the recommendations, including this news overview, a reflection from the Task Force head, and deeper dive into the Task Force’s findings.

Amplify Convention will provide one of the best venues possible for Northwest credit unions to get the latest on movement evolution. See the full agenda and register here.
