Northwest Credit Unions Gather in Spokane for MAXX 2019


Today kicks off MAXX 2019 in Spokane – the largest credit union gathering of its kind in the Northwest! Follow NWCUA social media channels and #MAXX2019 for the latest updates!

The day has arrived – the first day of the Northwest Credit Union Association’s annual convention, MAXX 2019! It’s the largest credit union event of its kind in the Northwest!

Nearly 500 credit union professionals are gathered in Spokane this week, where they’ll hear from state-of-the-art speakers on critical topics such as telling the credit union story, credit union advocacy, cybersecurity, emerging technology, and so much more.

In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with more than 130 business partners at the Strategic Link Trade Show. They’ll also learn about the latest in tech during “CU Pitch” at the Trade Show Welcome Reception. It’s going to be a fast-paced, exciting event, with five emerging technology companies pitching their credit union solutions to a panel of judges – credit unions’ own Shark Tank.

Tomorrow night, credit unions will help raise big funds for Credit Unions for Kids, and on Thursday night, they’ll celebrate their peers’ achievements at the MAXX Awards Gala.

“We are so pleased to welcome the Northwest credit union family to MAXX 2019,” said Troy Stang, Northwest Credit Union Association President and CEO. “We deeply appreciate everyone who’s made the trip to Spokane, including the approximately 1,000 credit union professionals, business partners, sponsors, and other credit union enthusiasts who support the Credit Union Movement. It’s going to be a week to remember.”

NWCUA and those in attendance will be sharing real-time experiences, thoughts, photos, and videos on social media this week, so remember to follow #MAXX2019.

Look for the latest conference news on NWCUA’s homepage and for updates on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

In addition, the Oct. 22 Anthem edition will feature a wide variety of MAXX coverage. We’ll share how much was raised at the Credit Unions for Kids Auction and who took home the trophies during our Awards Gala, so be sure to check it out!
