The thing that sets a credit union apart from other financial institutions is that we are governed by our members, not our shareholders. That means each year we elect a Board of Directors from our membership. Today Wauna Credit Union is announcing it’s annual Call for Nominations for candidates for the 2018 elections for its member-elected, volunteer Board of Directors. Elected officials help to set the direction and policies for our member-owned, member-directed financial institution.

Qualifying candidates must be a current Wauna CU member, at least 18 years of age, their membership shall be in good standing, and any potential conflict of interest does not exist, such as a close personal relationship with a Wauna CU official or employee. Other conditions may apply. Qualifying candidates will be interviewed by the Credit Union Governance Committee, which is responsible to select the final slate of candidates for the 2018 election. Candidate applications are now available at any branch, by mail (call to request: 800-773-3236), and on our website. The deadline to submit a completed application is close of business Friday, November 10, 2017. The By-Laws do offer a petition option; petition deadline is February 8, 2018. There will be no nominations from the floor during the 51st Annual Meeting.
If you have questions, please contact the Board Governance Committee Chair, Chrissy Johnston, at 503-728-6124 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
