NWCUA, Idaho Credit Union League Announce Multi-Year Annual Convention Collaboration

The Northwest Credit Union Association and the Idaho Credit Union League (ICUL) have announced a three-year partnership to hold simultaneous annual membership meetings while jointly hosting the MAXX Convention.

“The underlining theme of MAXX celebrates cooperative credit unions and their ability to realize the possibilities. We encourage the credit union leaders in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho to begin planning now to come together at MAXX 2017,” said Troy Stang, NWCUA President and CEO. “This partnership will bring some of the nation’s most innovative credit unions under one roof to accelerate and celebrate the value and impact they deliver to their 5.9 million members and the communities they serve.”

“Collaboration is the cornerstone of the credit union movement,” added Kathy Thomson, ICUL President and CEO. “This partnership ensures MAXX convention attendees can expect best-in-class content, powerful speakers, a preeminent Strategic Link Trade Show, networking, a celebration of traditions and experience opportunities for the future.”

In addition to high-level content on the main stages, the MAXX Conventions will showcase the best of the two leagues’ heritage events including the NWCUA’s annual dinner and auction benefitting Credit Unions for Kids, and the ICUL’s Annual Golf Tournament. NWCUA’s high-energy “MAXX-imize Your Advocacy” luncheon will spotlight the combined successes of credit unions in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

Making this rare collaboration more exciting is the fact that MAXX returns to Spokane, WA October 23-26, 2017. The city’s modern convention center and outstanding downtown hotels set the stage for the leagues to bring the highest-level professional development opportunities to credit union leaders and directors.

The locations for the 2018 and 2019 MAXX Conventions will be announced at a later date, Stang and Thomson said.

“On behalf of the NWCUA Board and staff we welcome our Gem State colleagues next year to “MAXXimize” the Credit Union Difference in the Northwest,” Stang said.
