What to Expect at the 2017 MAXX Convention


October 23-25, the Northwest credit union community will come together at the MAXX Annual Convention to chart the future of the Credit Union Movement.

This three-day event draws credit union leaders from across the region to enjoy innovative speakers, networking, opportunities to give back to the community, and a chance to celebrate credit union achievements. The sleek Spokane Convention Center will serve as this year’s venue. Located in the heart of downtown Spokane, WA, the convention center overlooks the Spokane River and the 100-acre Riverfront Park. The venue also offers close access to numerous restaurants, entertainment opportunities, and shopping.

Here’s a preview of some of the experiences you won’t want to miss at this year’s convention.
