Northwest CU Assoc. would join CUAO Wash league
PORTLAND, Ore. (9/10/10)--The Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) and the Washington Credit Union League met Wednesday to finalize plans to vote Nov. 1 to merge the two trade associations. The boards also passed a resolution to brand the new entity as the Northwest Credit Union Association. The proposal now moves to a joint membership action. Wednesday’s meeting culminated a series of town hall-style meetings conducted by Washington league Chair Debie Keesee and CUAO Chair Gene Pelham and board members, who reached out to colleagues about the value of combining the trade associations, the leagues said. The meetings were conducted in more than a dozen cities across Oregon and Washington, culminating in Olympia, Wash., on Wednesday. “These town halls have provided us with important information to help guide the final structure and framework of the new association that will be presented to the joint membership,” said Washington league President/CEO John Annaloro. Credit union leaders also can discuss the merger during a breakout session at the Washington league’s annual convention Sept. 16 and CUAO’s convention Oct. 6. “This is truly a merger of equals building on the strengths and traditions of each organization,” Pelham said. “We have eliminated the Columbia River as a barrier to make us stronger in our advocacy and support of all credit unions.”
