Samantha Beeler is the Northwest Credit Union Association’s VP, Advocacy, a role that allows her to work closely with elected officials in the Northwest, as well as credit unions to tell our story.

Beeler focuses primarily on our Federal legislative and political priorities. She also brings extensive grassroots advocacy experience to the Association after handling international outreach efforts for the aid organizations in more than a dozen countries around the globe. Most recently, she worked as a business development and marketing coordinator at BakerHostetler LLP in Washington, D.C. At the law firm, she worked primarily with the government contracts practice.

Samantha is passionate about leadership and listening and recently graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School’s Executive Education course on Moral Leadership. She previously attended Wheaton College in Illinois, where she studied Political Science and International Relations, with an emphasis in Mandarin.

Her role, she says, is to help spread that “People Helping People” message in Boise, Olympia, Salem and Washington, D.C.
