Northwest CU Professionals Connect With CUNA Committee Call to Service

22 credit union professionals from Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have been appointed to serve on various CUNA Committees in 2017, connecting with the Committee process to influence the Credit Union Movement nationally in 2017 and Beyond.

Committees are critical to the governance of CUNA’s work, and include a wide-range of credit union operations and topics. NWCUA President and CEO Troy Stang celebrated the new Northwest Committee members, and praised the appointees for raising their hands to serve.

“The CUNA/League system is strongest when everyone works together,” Stang said. “The unique views of Northwest credit unions are critical to the national conversation, and the NWCUA is proud of that representation.”

In addition to the Northwest credit union professionals named to Committees, NWCUA Chief Operating Officer and NWCUF Executive Director Denise Gabel was named to the CUNA Creating Awareness Advisory Group.
