We asked Meg R. on our marketing team to tell us what she loves about working with First West Credit Union. For her, it’s about the flexibility to work remotely from the innovation centre―a state-of-the-art facility in downtown Kelowna with technology that keeps her connected with colleagues. #TeamFirstWest

Today our teams wore purple for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. It’s a topic we take seriously, and we’re proud to do our part to protect our members and raise awareness for this important issue. #WEAAD #worldelderabuseawarenessday #creditunion #cooperative

Our Shred It and Forget It event this past Saturday was a huge success: we shredded 7740 lbs of paper documents, collected 200 lbs of food for the #Penticton Salvation Army Food Bank and raised $2,194 for #FeedTheValley. Thank you to everyone who came out, and to our fantastic event partners - Appleton Waste Services, the Downtown Penticton Association, Okanagan Paper Shredding and Starbucks downtown Penticton!

This Earth Day, we're celebrating how we've saved 205 trees in the past year through digital transformation. By switching from paper to electronic documentation, we were able to reduce our paper consumption by more than 4 million pages! #EarthDay #EarthDay2018 #EarthDayEveryDay

For #NationalVolunteerWeek we’re celebrating our team members who go above and beyond the call of duty and volunteer their time and talents to brighten their communities. Meet Financial Advisor Michael Gordon, who spends his downtime with the team at Kelowna SPCA, giving love and care to abandoned animals. “I’ve been volunteering with the Kelowna SPCA since April 2017 as a dog walker/companion, as well as helping with maintenance and yard work. Before that I volunteered with the Surrey SPCA as a lead volunteer for dog walkers and was also a coordinator for their annual Paws for a Cause Dog Walk-a-Thon. My own dog is an adoption from the Surrey SPCA; nine years ago he had been found abandoned outside a mall complex and spent two months at the SPCA where I fell in love and ended up welcoming him into my home. Through him I’ve experienced first-hand the love and care animals coming from the SPCA give and deserve to receive. My pup is a 13-year-old Lab-Retriever with hip dysplasia, arthritis and he’s had two knee surgeries for ACL tears but he keeps on trucking and still gets excited for walks, hikes and swims! I’m so thankful to the SPCA for taking him in, caring for him while in their care and then allowing me to bring him home.” “The Kelowna SPCA does such important work to protect and take care of animals who can’t fend for themselves, to educate the public and help animals to find their “furever” homes. All of their employees and the other volunteers are so amazing; it can be very emotional work but they work tirelessly with the animals in their care to nurse them back to health, train them and prepare them for a successful adoption. I can’t say enough good things about the Kelowna SPCA!”

Diana Stirling, Valley First member and owner of LocoLanding Adventure Park in Penticton and The Peach Ice Cream Shop shares her most exciting personal goal and why it's so important to remove doubt from your life. #IWD2018

If you could eliminate a workplace hurdle for all women, what would it be?

To eliminate doubt. I’ve never been mindful of whether I’m the only woman around the boardroom table, or involved in a project, or asked for my opinion. I see people – not men & women. I see our collective strengths, value, expertise, leadership. And I’ve never doubted that someone shouldn’t be there because of their gender. If you’re not conscious of it, it’s not an issue. Doubt kills more dreams than fear. And fear kills growth.
What personal goal excites you the most right now?

Right now, my goal is to make positivity louder. Whether it’s in my home, at the businesses, or within our community. Positivity goes hand in hand with Optimism – which I truly believe is the secret sauce behind all successful entrepreneurs.
