Councils provide a forum for peer groups to connect, share experiences, and learn from each other. Members enjoy networking opportunities, admission to all Council-specific meetings, and access to a Council-specific listserv.

2019 Council Program Updates

The 2019 Council program will bring some exciting updates.

We are thrilled to add a new discipline to our Council lineup. The Risk Management Council will provide an opportunity for professionals in various risk-related roles to discuss trends and share their challenges and successes with peers. This council focuses on physical, information, and cyber security, as well as business continuity and disaster recovery. By connecting peers in these areas, this council will foster communication and support that is beneficial for the credit union movement in terms of identifying and reducing the many areas of risk that credit unions face daily.

While Council meetings will continue to be held in NWCUA offices with lunch provided and an opportunity to network with peers, meeting attendees will also be able to call-in directly from their desks, or convene with a group of their co-workers or peers in a conference room at their credit union. We are excited about this enhancement which will expand access to the meetings to credit unions of all sizes and geographic locations. In-person Council meetings will no longer be organized in Eugene, Lewiston, Medford, Pocatello, or Spokane.

The meetings will take place via the Zoom videoconferencing platform. To participate in the meetings, attendees will need access to a computer or video conferencing system with working speakers. To learn more about Zoom and how to join the meetings, watch this 1-minute video or reach out to Carmen Vigil at cvigil@nwcua.org.
