On February 19th, representatives from credit unions all over the state will unite in Olympia to educate state legislatures on the strength and potential of credit unions. To ensure the "East Side" is well represented at this year's Credit Union Day at the Capitol, the Spokane Chapter is reimbursing the flight cost for one employee from each chapter credit union. We will also supply transportation for that individual from SeaTac airport to the capitol and back again. No overnight stay is required for this event.
The Spokane Chapter will "Hike the Hill"
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.
The Spokane Chapter provides scholarship grants to help strengthen our credit union community and contribute to the development of our local area credit union professionals. If your credit union is an affiliate of the Spokane Chapter of the Northwest Credit Union Association, we have scholarship funds available for staff, management and volunteers to assist in paying for educational programs that enhance individual performance and benefit your credit union.
The Spokane Chapter has a budget for credit union related programs as well as for CUNA Management School. Please note that scholarship money is offered throughout the year until the budgeted amount as been utilized.
