NWCUA Council Program Expands Opportunities for CU Professionals to Learn, Share, Network


Have you ever admired another credit union’s work and wished they’d share their secret sauce? Ever wondered about best practices as you roll out new technology? What about simply having the opportunity to network with your Northwest counterparts? It’s all easily possible without traveling far or spending many days away from the credit union.

The NWCUA Council program is your regional opportunity to connect with peers on important industry topics.  You can attend a one-day event near your office and connect with colleagues throughout the Northwest thanks to video conferencing. Our 2018 council meetings are growing in number of locations and attendees!  Thanks to the generosity and partnership of credit unions throughout the region, you can now attend a council at any of the following locations:

  • Spokane, WA – Horizon Credit Union
  • Eugene, OR – Northwest Community CU
  • Medford, OR – Rogue Credit Union
  • Lewiston, ID – P1FCU
  • Pocatello, ID – Idaho Central CU
  • SeaTac, WA – NWCUA SeaTac Office
  • Tigard, OR – NWCUA Tigard Office
  • Boise, ID – NWCUA Boise Office

We have several meetings coming up this spring that you won’t want to miss.

The Lenders Council meets April 17.  Here’s what’s on tap:

How exactly is technology evolving the financial services industry? What is artificial intelligence and how is it impacting the lending process? We will discuss these topics in depth as we hear from two companies that are revolutionizing consumer lending and member experience. In the afternoon, we will be joined by Hal Scoggins, Shareholder at Farleigh Wada Witt, who will discuss lending hot topics and answer your questions. We will also have time for a roundtable discussion where we will hear from local credit unions on their tips and tricks for developing successful mortgage and indirect lending programs. Bring your questions!

The Marketing, Business Development, and Community Outreach Council collaborates April 24.

Troy Stang, NWCUA President & CEO ignites the #CUObsessed fire and shares how you can get involved. Next, we will talk all things business development and hear from a CU in Spokane on how to develop and sustain relationships with employer groups and the local community. After lunch, Lynn Heider will share a training on interacting with media. You can turn a negative question into a positive answer. You won’t want to miss this vital opportunity to learn how to position your CU in the best possible light.
