Micro-Communities Connect Events Drive Learning and Professional Development for Credit Union Leaders


The June 7 Micro-Communities Workshop, held at NWCUA’s SeaTac, Washington, office last year saw high engagement.

Credit union micro-community leaders will advance their professional development at the 2019 Micro-Communities Connect Events. The gatherings will take a deep dive into leadership, education, advocacy, and the credit union philosophy 

“The Connect Events are a learning opportunity designed for chapter leaders, young professionals, Emerging Leaders alumniand Credit Union Development Educators,” said Northwest Credit Union Association Director of Cooperative Development, Carmen Vigil. “We’ll focus on professional development skills that will help them become more engaged in their credit union community and drive greater impact. 

The Connect Events will be presented as a series of two half-day learning sessions. The sessions are scheduled for June 6 and Sept. 24, and participants have the option to attend remotely via video or from an NWCUA office in Boise, SeaTac, or Tigard. Micro-Community leaders are encouraged to attend both events to obtain the greatest value and opportunities to connect with other credit union professionals. 
At the June 6 event, industry leaders will guide participants through micro-communities’ unique role within the Credit Union Movementhighlight ways to drive innovation at credit unions; outline steps to build engagement through social media; and more.
