It’s Time to Gear Up for NWCUA Virtual Fall Councils


As credit unions reflect on 2020 and look ahead to 2021, it’s clear the financial services landscape is evolving quickly, andopportunities to connect, share experiences, and learn from one another are more important than ever.

Next month, Northwest credit union professionals will convene virtually during NWCUA’s fall council meetings to address current and upcoming issues in various fields, from lending and collections to HR and risk management. The council meetings, which will take place via Zoom video conferencing, will be condensed to suit the virtual setting and jam-packed with the latest industry information. Participants are encouraged to come ready to share, network, and ask questions.
