Removal of Most Covid-19 Restrictions

On June 30, 2021 Governors Brown (OR) and Insley (WA) lifted all restrictions regarding COVID-19 precautions that have been in effect since last year. OSHA has still not announced any changes, however, with the guidance from the states, we too are lifting the precautions.

This means:

  • Masks are no longer required in-branch. Anyone is welcome to continue to wear a mask should they feel more comfortable doing so.
  • We are not asking members to prove they’ve been vaccinated in order to enter the branch   
  • Vaccinated staff members have provided the necessary proof to WCU Human Resources 
  • Employees may unmask if they are 2 weeks past their final dose or are fully vaccinated otherwise
  • Employees who do not provide proof of vaccination two weeks past their final does MUST continue to wear a mask at work
  • Employees who are fully vaccinated, verified, and allowed to remove their mask may still choose to wear one

For those wishing to take increased precautions. We recommend all members use our U-Banking online and app banking, which is available 24/7, and our Video Teller Units to conduct your financial transactions and keep yourself safe. If you have questions regarding your accounts, please send us a secure message within U-Banking, or call the Virtual Branch at 800-773-3236 (Monday-Thursday 9 am – 5:30 pm, and Friday 9 am – 6 pm).

December Statement Insert – Annual Election

Annual Meeting and Board Nominee Notice

Our 54th Annual Meeting (you’re invited!) will be held on March 16th at 6pm Erlene Darby Learning Center 49249 Hwy 30 Westport, OR

The Board of Directors has approved three nominees for three positions on the Board of Directors from applications submitted by members. Their names and biographical information are included below.

Chrissy Johnston, Incumbent, Scappoose I am excited for the opportunity to continue serving on the Wauna Credit Union Board of Directors. I was born and raised in Scappoose, where I still live today. I’m a mother to three school aged children and a small business owner. Prior to owning my own businesses, I worked for a major bank for 12 years and worked my way up from a teller position to management. After the birth of my son, I left the bank to work for a credit union specializing in training new employees, which gave me a clear understanding of the difference between banks and credit unions. I am passionate about the credit union movement and the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.” I feel that my background and experience allow me to serve on the Wauna Credit Union Board of Directors, with a well-rounded approach and I would be honored to continue to represent the membership.

Jennifer Teeter, Incumbent, Astoria I have served on the Wauna Board of Directors for seven years and have been elected Finance Officer for six of those years. Wauna has grown substantially, in part due to the successful collaboration between members of the board. I would like to continue to be a part of Wauna’s future successes. I am an Audit Manager for Isler CPA, working from my home in Astoria, auditing local governments and non-profits. Before moving to Astoria/Warrenton in March 2013 I worked out of Isler’s office in Eugene. I look forward to continuing to serve you as a member of your board of directors.

Dr. Michael R Hoag, Scappoose I attended Scappoose schools, graduating in 1969. I attended Oregon College of Education (Western Oregon University now) and University of Oregon School of Dentistry ( OHSU ), graduating in 1976. I practiced general dentistry in Scappoose from 1976 until 1988. I then joined OHSU School of Dentistry in 1990 and retired from OHSU in 2010. While at OHSU, I worked in the Department of Restorative Dentistry as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Removable Prosthetics. I also worked in the Department of Behavioral Sciences as an instructor for Preventative Dentistry and as an instructor for Dental Hygiene in Dental Anatomy. For the Scappoose School District, I was an assistant girls basketball coach from 1978-1981 and 2000-2002, Varsity Girls Basketball Coach from 1982-1997. Varsity Softball Coach from 1996-2006. I also held various assistant coach positions in football, baseball and softball during my time there. I am currently an assistant softball coach. I have held leadership positions in the Scappoose Booster Club. I held a board position for Oregon Dental Service (Mada Health) from 1977-1980. I held the president position in the Scappoose Alumni Association from 2000-2010 and presided over two All School Reunions (2005, 2010). I volunteered as a softball coach, baseball coach, umpire and officer for Scappoose Little League for many years. I held a board position for six years in the Portland Softball Umpire’s Association. I officiated in two State 6A Softball Championship games (2011 and 2018) and was honored with the State of Oregon Softball Umpire of the Year in 2018. I was an ASA National Championship Umpire in 2012 for the 23U National Tournament. I have served on the Wauna Credit Union Supervisory Committee since 2016 and have been the chair for the past three years. I continue to be active in my community through working with our youth and alumni associations. I am currently assisting the Scappoose 100 year celebration committee in planning the City of Scappoose’s Centennial Celebration to be held in the summer of 2021. It is very important to give back to the community that has provided a great life for myself and my family. I have been married to Patti Heller for over 25 years and we have four children and eleven grandchildren. I am proud to be part of the Wauna Family and look forward to being part of the Board of Directors.An election will not be conducted by ballot, and there will be no nominations from the floor at the annual meeting when the number of nominees equals the number of positions to be filled, which is currently the situation. Any member who desires to run for the Board may do so now only by a nomination by petition signed by 270 credit union members in good standing 18 years of age or older. An application may be requested by calling 1-800-773-3236, Ext 3124. Completed applications may be mailed to ATTN: Governance Committee P.O.
