Each member in good standing is encouraged to submit a proxy vote to be cast in the member’s behalf to elect another member to serve on the credit union’s Board of Directors.
Candidates were nominated based on individual qualifications, past association with the Credit Union and personal concern for representing interests of fellow Credit Union Shareowners. All Directors, with the exception of the President/CEO, volunteer their time while serving on the Board.
