Members who serve on the Board of Directors of InRoads Credit Union are unpaid volunteers. Their service on the Board requires attendance at monthly and special Board meetings which involves a significant amount of time spent in preparation for those meetings. Board members also attend scheduled training sessions and off-site educational/strategic planning functions throughout the year.
This year, the nominating committee has nominated the three candidates below, who are running unopposed for re-election. No nominations by petition were received nor applications to the nominating committee. Therefore, as provided in our bylaws, there will be no nominations from the floor and no voting at the credit union’s annual meeting. Each of the three candidates will start their new term on the board after the annual meeting in the St. Helens Public Library Auditorium, 375 S 18th St., at 6:15 pm on April 28. Their statement of qualifications and biographical data are listed below.
I’m a small business owner, long-term member (39 years), and a civic-minded community advocate who believes in the Credit Union philosophy of people helping people. I like serving the community and helping steer the credit union to better serve the members. I’m up for re-election to a third term and believe my 30-years of experience running a small business has helped the credit union offer better financial products and services to like-minded small business owners throughout the region.
In 1979 I was honored to begin my service on the board. I have owned and operated a successful construction company for over 25 years which continues to serve the local area. I have served on the InRoads board through both good and bad economic times and have proudly watched our credit union grow from one small branch to providing a vast array of financial services to all of Columbia County. This diverse experience and background has allowed me to help move InRoads forward as we continue to find ways to serve the local community in this ever changing economy.
I joined the board in June 2018, after previously serving on the Supervisory Committee from 2016 to 2018. I began my involvement with the credit union as an employee many years ago and am proud to say the credit union has been an important partner to my business as we have grown over the years. I believe my background as a small business owner, along with my past knowledge of the financial services industry, provides valuable input to the board. I am excited for the future of the credit union and would be honored to continue to serve you.
