CUWLA was founded with the intent to create an impactive support system to address challenges that are unique to women CEOs of smaller credit unions.
Once it was determined to move forward, the group was well on their way when life for everyone changed in 2020. That didn’t stop this determined group and in February 2021 at the virtual GAC, launched to public.
Since the inception of this network, CUWLA has established for its members, monthly “Meet and Greet” opportunities and quarterly “Power Hour” events. Our website hosts a community forum that invites an exchange of ideas, best practices and policies, to name a few. Over the past two years, CUWLA has established itself as an effective support system with access to a wealth of experienced credit union leaders working toward a common goal; the need which is evident in its growing membership and through the continued support of various trade associations and business partners.
We are excited to be able to offer such an effective support system to women CEOs of smaller credit unions and are encouraged by the support we continue to receive from our members. We are equally enthusiastic about CUWLA’s future as we continue to increase the areas of support offered to this critically important segment from within the credit union movement and to be able to offer membership to others who can benefit from the support, knowledge, and experience of their peers.
