Jennifer Wagner is the EVP & Chief Advocacy Officer for the Northwest Credit Union Association. She leads the Association’s federal governmental affairs priorities, working closely with the Northwest congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. as well as in our region. Wagner oversees the Association’s grassroots advocacy programs and initiatives to raise political action funds to support candidates who promote credit union movement legislation. She leads the operational side of all advocacy programs including the grassroots and political advocacy efforts.

After earning a BA from Oregon State University, Wagner spent 10 years in the legislative arena, working for local congressional representatives Darlene Hooley and Kurt Schrader, both in Washington D.C. and in their Oregon offices.

Wagner sits on AACUL’s Political Involvement and Grassroots Committee, which is charged with providing direction and feedback in the development, implementation, and championing of political and grassroots programs for the credit union system.
