NWCUA’s 2020 Councils to Launch in March

Councils allow credit union professionals to gather with peers and address issues in various fields, from collections to risk management.

2/25/2020

The Northwest Credit Union Association’s 2020 Council Program will kick off next month, providing a forum for credit union professionals to connect, share experiences, and stay current on the latest industry trends.

The meetings, to be held at NWCUA offices and online over video conferencing, give professionals a chance to dive into their specialties with peers and experts. Lunch is provided for those attending in person.

NWCUA member credit unions can take advantage of a Power User Membership, which allows a credit union to send an unlimited number of staff to all council meetings. Credit union professionals may also purchase a membership to attend all council meetings in a specific discipline or register for individual meetings for a flat rate of $99.

The 2020 councils are not to be missed, so mark your calendars and register today.
