A surprised Nick Fugal accepting the Young Credit Union Leader award at MAXX last year.

Just five years into his Credit Union Movement Career, Nick Fugal received the Northwest Credit Union Association’s (NWCUA) 2017 Young Credit Union Leader of the Year Award.

Fugal is Chief Financial Officer of Nampa, Idaho-based Clarity Credit Union. He was honored for rapid career development, as well as for his leading role in starting Climb Idaho, a game-changing organization that galvanizes Idaho’s young credit union professionals in advocacy, leadership, and community impact.

“The Movement that’s behind all this is really exciting to me. It’s been a really great year.” said Frugal. “There are a lot of young professionals in the Northwest who are worthy, who have done a lot of work,” he noted, encouraging nominations for 2018.
