A Written Message from the Candidate

Dear Owners and Peers,

Helping lead our cooperative the last six years in a board capacity has been nothing short of rewarding. I am humbled each day to represent my peers at our core processor as an ear and voice for our credit unions and our members for the betterment of our CUSO. Thank you for affording me the opportunity to serve you and our CUSO. I am looking forward to your vote once again to keep my seat on the CU Answers Board of Directors.

I came into this board role with little knowledge and understanding of our core provider, other than being a user of the system. When I originally ran six years ago, I was just hoping to start understanding our cooperative better, gain familiarity with my peers, and hope that I would be elected someday down the line. As luck would have it, I ran unopposed. From there, the fire hose drinking began, but I quickly acclimated and found my voice.

I have been given many opportunities to have a bigger voice and lead in my board seat. I currently hold the board secretary position. I am co-chair of our HR Committee and am a member of the Investment Committee. Hopefully with your vote again, I will go even further in my leadership on the board and see a chair or vice chair role.

Over the course of the last two terms of serving I have been a part of the greatest changes in the CUSO over the last 50 years. I was an integral part of the CEO changeover. I have been instrumental in helping plan strategically, which has yielded our greatest dividends to members. I have gained invaluable knowledge of the inner workings of our core but also built amazing relationships with many of you, my peers.

I am grateful for this opportunity and would be appreciative if you once again would put your faith in me representing you on the board. Please cast your vote for me to serve my third term on the CU Answers Board of Directors. Thank you for your consideration and vote!
Thank You!
