After reading the manual, take the quiz, and then download your certificate. This engaging resource is highly recommended for all new employees as well as for staff wanting a refresher course on the roots of the “People Helping People” philosophy.
Northwest Credit Union Chapters
NWCUA’s 20 individual chapters each represent credit unions located within designated geographical boundaries. The Association’s chapter program promotes unity among credit unions in a local area through communication, networking, training, and participation in community, state, and national projects that support the cooperative spirit of the credit union movement.
Credit Unions for Kids
The credit union movement’s national “charity of choice” was founded in the Northwest in 1986. Our credit unions continue to support this legacy cause through collaboration that is facilitated by six regional Ambassador Advisory Groups, driven by the credit unions. Each of the six regional Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefit directly from the credit unions’ fundraising efforts.
Small Credit Union Resources
Because small credit unions face unique challenges, the Northwest Credit Union Association has a section of our website specifically dedicated to helping credit unions with assets of $50 million and less, to thrive.
