Voting is one feature that makes Seattle Credit Union different from a lot of other financial institutions. Here, our members actually own the credit union and vote on the leadership that represents them.
Being an owner means that, instead of being beholden to stockholders in some other city, state, or country, our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee are chosen by you. Directors and Supervisory Committee members must be actual members of the credit union.
We want our Board to represent the diversity and strength of our members and our community. Vote now and take pride in being part of a local institution where your voice and your vote really matter.
How to Vote
During the week of February 12th, you should receive a letter in the mail with your ballot, voting credentials and instructions about how to cast your vote, either by mail or online. You may have also receive an email with the instructions and login information to vote online, if we have a valid email address on file.
We have retained the services of Survey & Ballot Systems to administer the election. The emails you receive will come from them. Be sure to whitelist this address, firstname.lastname@example.org, to ensure you get those emails.
What Are the Board’s Responsibilities?
One-hundred percent democratically elected by the membership, the Board meets each month to review and evaluate all aspects of the credit union including:
- Setting the vision for the credit union
- Building a strategic plan
- Approving the annual operating budget
- Overseeing the credit union’s financial soundness and service levels
Additional responsibilities include serving on special Seattle Credit Union Committees, such as the Corporate Citizenship Committee, the Finance and Budget Committee, and the Technology Committee. Board members also represent the credit union at community events.
