Candidates & Nomination Process
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 which will be held at Meriwether Place, 1070 Columbia Blvd in St. Helens, at 6:00 pm on April 26. Their statement of qualifications and biographical data are listed below.
Sherry Campbell (1-year term)
I recently joined the board last August after previously serving on the Supervisory Committee. I have been a member for over 20 years, accessing many of the lending programs made available to me as a 45-year resident of Columbia County. For the last nine years, my professional career has been dedicated solely to the growth and financial stability of credit unions nationwide. My experience working with budgets and specifically, proactively managing the cost of employee medical benefits, provides valuable insight to the board. I am excited for the future growth of InRoads and honored to serve my community.
Lea Chitwood (3-year term)
As a local business owner and resident who believes it is important to give back to my community, I began my volunteer service on the Supervisory Committee many years ago, and my most recent board service began in 2019. The credit union embodies many qualities I seek in business and professional organizations. I am passionate about helping and I love the many ways InRoads Credit Union assists businesses and individuals for their financial future in Columbia County and beyond. I welcome the opportunity to continue to serve you and the credit union.
Lance Howard (3-year term)
I joined the InRoads Board of Directors in June of 2021, after serving several years on the Supervisory Committee. In my professional career as a Cyber Security Director, I bring a unique background of understanding the need to deliver outcomes, while balancing the need to protect sensitive information. This perspective on the board steps into the commitment we have for protecting our members’ information. I am excited to continue to serve our community as we bring enhanced capabilities to our members.
