President's Message-November 2015

By Bill Anderson, President/CEO

“Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk”.
-Doug Larsen, United Press

The first week of October, several of our staff and board member Patty Stell participated in the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) Amplify meeting in Portland. This annual meeting is the most attended event in the Pacific NW by credit unions, volunteers and industry partners. It is the platform for the cumulative efforts of our NW credit unions that features the best of our collaborative and cooperative efforts.

Here are some of the great things we learned in Portland:

Additionally, we had the opportunity to meet and network with our Regulators, Legislators, Officials and credit union industry peers to address issues and learn more about what is looming in the near future for credit unions.

Some of the topics we learned more about included:

We are very fortunate that we can connect and collaborate with our other credit union friends in the NW, it is an amazing industry of “People Helping People” that benefits all of our members! A great deal of helpful information in a very short period of time that will help us in our planning process as we look forward to 2016.
