Learn from Industry Experts and Share Best Practices


Join us at one of our upcoming council meetings to learn from and network with credit union colleagues throughout the region. In addition to educational presentations, each session will include plenty of time for roundtable discussion and networking.

Attendees can join these meetings in one of seven locations throughout the Northwest.

HR & Trainers’ Council: Dec. 7

Bring your questions, advice, and challenges to this session, which will feature the following presentations:

  • Aspiring Leaders Program: Through their Aspiring Leaders Program, the team at Rivermark Community Credit Union set out to help employees develop and utilize leadership skills within their current roles at the credit union. Participants in the program practiced communication, strategic planning, team collaboration, presentation, and project management. The program provided the building blocks to help employees expand their leadership presence in present roles and prepare for future management positions. During this presentation from Training Manager Cheryl McCarthy, Senior HR Manager Teri Zahn, and VP of Human Resources Jackie Henderson, you’ll hear more about Rivermark’s program and the results the team has seen.
  • Advocacy: Samantha Beeler, NWCUA’s AVP, Advocacy, will illustrate the importance of credit union advocacy, and what you should know as a leader at your credit union. This presentation will involve hands-on advocacy training to help you strengthen the CU Movement and your credit union. Beeler will also share information about the resources available to assist you in developing advocacy training for your organization.
