NWCUA Set to Welcome ACUC to Pacific Northwest

On June 25, credit union leaders from around the country will arrive in Seattle for America’s Credit Union Conference, where the top minds in the credit union movement will participate in the future-focused conference.

To kick things off, NWCUA is hosting a pre-conference workshop for Directors. The two day event will focus on the critical items any credit union director should know, from the economy and the state of the industry to increased regulatory burden, onboarding and competitive forces shaping the system. NWCUA President and CEO Troy Stang is set to welcome attendees to the meeting.

The conference, itself, is designed for credit union leaders—including credit union presidents and executives, board members, CUNA Council members, supervisory committee members, mid-level managers and staff members.

Teachers Give Back Event Also Planned

Teachers from around the Seattle-area will combine their passion for instruction with credit unions’ passion for financial edudation during America’s Credit Union Conference, with ACUC Teachers Give Back Seattle.

Teachers know it’s important to teach financial basics, but they don’t have the curriculum. Credit unions will provide K-12 teachers with financial education resources to take back to their classrooms. This high energy, fast paced workshop is another way America’s most trusted financial institutions—credit unions—are partnering with teachers.

Credit Unions for Kids Skybridge at Seattle Children’s Hospital to be Dedicated

Also previewed in an earlier Anthem was the inspiring collective work of the Credit Unions for Kids team—celebrating the 30th year of the charity that started here in the Northwest. Seattle-area credit unions have commited another $1 million to Seattle Children’s Hospital, and that commitment will be symbolized by a skybridge named in Credit Unions for Kids’ honor on June 29, at 2:00 p.m.

High medical bills are a leading cause of bankruptcy. Seattle’s credit unions commit to contribute $1 million over the next five years toward “uncompensated care”—the bills families can’t afford and insurance won’t cover.

Credit Unions for Kids is the credit union movement’s national charity of choice. So far, credit unions have contributed over $150 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
