"It’s about helping people’s lives be better." - Louise McCarren Herring


The credit union industry is chock-full of avenues for personal and professional growth. As long as the endgame is to improve the lives of your members, we highly recommend you take advantage of any or all of the following opportunities. Please reach out for advice, tips, tricks, or just straight-up support!


Next Top Credit Union Exec. Competition

NTCUE is a fantastic opportunity for emerging credit union leaders and one whirlwind of a competition.

Each year, applicants are encouraged to produce a one-to-two-minute YouTube video. The video content should include information about their role at their credit union, any relevant professional accomplishments and a pitch about a current project or program that they are working on at their credit union.

Take a shot and you might just become the Next Top Credit Union Executive. 


NWCUA Awards Program & YP Leads

The Northwest Credit Union Association is proud to recognize those professionals, volunteers, and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the Credit union Movement.

Nominate yourself or someone else just as awesome and deserving. There are many awards to choose from, so don't be afraid to put yourself, another, or your credit union out there. 

Additionally, your Association has joined forces with YCUP Oregon & Washington, YCUP Greater Seattle Area, and Climb Idaho to launch a region-wide leadership community of young credit union professionals at upcoming MAXX events.
