Regrettably, the NWCUCA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 conference in Bellevue, WA due to the ongoing threat posed by COVID19. While we had hoped for the best, the progression of the pandemic continues to unfold and it became clear in this unprecedented situation that this decision was the obvious and sensible one.

Every year we look forward to connecting with each of you and this year was no different. We were so excited to put on another GREAT conference but the association’s first priority is the health, safety and well-being of our Credit Union participants and Business Partner exhibitors.

We will be issuing refunds for conference fees and sponsorships the same way they were paid (PayPal or check). However, membership fees will not be reimbursed. Please allow time for all refunds to be processed.

The association will be exploring options for educational events throughout the coming year to keep us all connected and informed.

NWCUCA wishes health, safety and prosperity to all our business partners and fellow credit unions as we make our way through this challenging time.

Here is what people have said about past conferences:

The resources and networking the Association and the Conference provide are priceless.”

“I met a huge network of collectors and vendors, in which I might not have had the opportunity to meet if it was not for the conference.“

“I went to my first conference in 2010 and now can’t imagine having to miss one.”

“One of the great things about conference is bringing all of our credit Unions from all over together to network together. Those relationships you form with the other collectors and our vendors are worth so much more than the cost of attending conference.”

“This year’s conference was better than ever, and there was record attendance to meet and greet new faces!”

NWCUCA’s annual conference is always a huge success. It is designed to deliver education and resources to help you optimize your efforts.  This is your conference and your best education opportunity of the year.  Do not hesitate; plan now to attend in 2020!
