CU2.0 Podcast – Episode 6 – Trudy Soucoup, Board Member WSECU

It’s the CU 2.0 podcast! CU 2.0 is excited to bring you the sixth in a series of podcasts from Robert McGarvey. Welcome to the CU 2.0 Podcast, regular interviews with credit union leaders, thinkers, movers, shakers and more.

This week, Robert sat down with Trudy Soucoup, a member of the board of directors at Washington State Employees Credit Union, a top 100 institution with about $2.8 billion in assets. Trudy’s day job is as CEO of Homes First!, a nonprofit focused on low-income housing in Washington. The focus of this podcast: what’s it like to be a board member in 2018, a time of enormous flux for most credit unions.
