Community Events

Grab your pen and notepad. Your popcorn and virtual reality glasses. Our event is about to begin.

Getting involved is what we're all about

We sponsor and support all sorts of events for our community.

Our day job keeps us busy in the office. But the Excite Credit Union staff likes to step out at every opportunity and help make things happen in the communities we serve. The following is a list of upcoming events we're participating in or contributing to...these days mostly virtual:

California Events

Run Local Events

Excite Credit Union has partnered and is sponsoring the Bay Area Run Local events. Run Local is a series of fun-focused and locally themed running events. Run Local is about local people really loving where they live and what they do. It’s about being proud of your town and proud of the unique culture within it.  Run Local events that highlight those special local elements. We shut down Main Street, create a big party, turn down the intimidation factor, and invite all the neighbors.

Opportunity Housing Event

Partner Event | MARCH 22, 5:00 PM, ONLINE EVENT

Catalyze SV Presents: Duplexes, Triplexes & Quadplexes, Oh My!

Local government officials from across the U.S. discuss how they’re changing zoning to make it easier to build homes like duplexes.

In recent years, cities across the country have begun passing reforms to zoning, changing policies that have been in place for decades.

San Jose, where 94% of residential land is zoned exclusively for single-family homes, is now considering a similar change through a concept called Opportunity Housing. The results could have a big impact – the New York Times cites research that if 10% of San Jose’s 5,000 square foot lots added a second unit, our community would have 15,000 new places for people to live.

Catalyze SV & Excite Credit Union invite you to join us for a dynamic panel bringing together government officials from across the U.S. who have evaluated & passed similar zoning changes.

For March 22, we've secured the President of the Minneapolis City Council, the Acting Planning Director of Sacramento, and more.
