Documenting credit unions’ economic impact helps move the advocacy needle in the right direction. ECONorthwest has performed an independent economic analysis of credit unions' impacts on the economies of Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
Each state's report was commissioned by GoWest Credit Union Association and measures the impacts and ripple effect of direct financial benefits that credit unions as not-for-profit cooperatives deliver to their members – often through such services as lower fees or better interest rates, jobs, income, and economic contributions. ECONorthwest’s analyses are tools legislators hold in high regard as they set budgets, determine policy, and consider legislation.
During the webinar, attendees will hear from Mike Wilkerson, Partner & Director of Analytics at ECONorthwest, on the latest analysis results, highlighting credit unions' impressive impact in the GoWest region.
