Spokane Chapter Almost Sweeps Chapter Awards at NWCUA's Amplify Gala


As your elected board for the Spokane Chapter we were very honored to accept the Chapter Awards for Education, Advocacy, Philosophy in Action, and overall Best Practice at this year's NWCUA Amplify Convention. Every year, credit union chapters across the states of Oregon and Washington submit their entries for the Chapter Awards focusing on Leadership, Education, Advocacy, Philanthropy, and overall Best Practice. Your Spokane Chapter was proud to accept four of the five awards given at the Amplify Gala held on October 9th. Our awards submissions included valued events such as Hike the Hill, in which we sent 9 credit union employees to represent our chapter and area credit unions, the Spokane Chapter Golf Tournament where we raised over $30,000, including a $10,000 Miracle Match for CU for Kids and CULAF, and our free of charge BSA and Robbery training, offered every year to our members. "Wow! This chapter is a wonderful example for other chapters throughout the region", cited one Chapter Awards judge. We are very grateful for our member credit union and vendor participation in these events. As representatives of the Spokane area credit unions, we take our commitment to the four Chapter Pillars of Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Philanthropy to heart and were very pleased to receive recognition for our efforts in accepting these awards on behalf of our Chapter Members. Thank you for your continued support of the Spokane Chapter. We look forward to a very active and successful 2015.
