Save the Date for NWCUA’s Annual Legal Symposium


Your Association is here to equip you with the tools your credit union needs to navigate the complex regulatory landscape. For our upcoming Legal Symposium, we’ve assembled a team of experts to answer your questions and share the most relevant, up-to-date legal and regulatory information. This symposium also will fulfill continuing legal education requirements for Idaho, Oregon, and Washington attorneys.

Tailored toward credit union professionals at the executive level — including attorneys, CEOs, and regulatory and compliance pros — the event will cover legal tips to help you better negotiate vendor contracts, the latest developments in laws related to consumer lending, and much more.

Topics will include:

  • Regulatory developments from Frank Kressman, Associate General Counsel for the NCUA
  • CFPB and federal enforcement actions
  • A panel focused on regulatory issues, featuring Linda Jekel, Director, Washington Division of Credit Unions; Mary Hughes, Acting Director, Idaho Department of Finance; and Janet Powell, CU Program Manager, Division of Financial Regulation
  • Legal considerations related to cannabis banking
  • Cybersecurity
  • Negotiating vendor terms

The full-day session will take place on Dec. 6, 2017, in three locations across the Northwest. Speakers will present in SeaTac, WA, with videoconferencing in Tigard, OR, and Boise, ID.
