NWCUF Board Nominating Committee Formed for 2016

A Nominating Committee has been charged to build upon the current Northwest Credit Union Foundation Board of Directors by adding additional diverse and well-qualified candidates. The committee will consider geography, asset size, state and federal charter as characteristics when considering nominees.  

The NWCUF governance model enables the best qualified candidates to seek appointment to your Foundation Board. This modern and progressive model also encourages more credit union leaders to get involved in the nomination process.

Board Members play an integral role promoting the key areas of focus for your Foundation: asset building, economic empowerment, and cooperative development.

Scott Prior, President/CEO of Connection Credit Union (Silverdale, WA) and NWCUF Board Member, has accepted his appointment as Chair of the Nominating Committee.  

The following individuals have also accepted their appointment to serve on the Nominating Committee:

  • Dan Hein, President & CEO of Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air Employees Federal Credit Union
  • Debie Keesee, CEO of Spokane Media Federal Credit Union
  • Chuck Garner, President & CEO of Oregonians Credit Union
  • Mark Turnham, CEO of Northwest Priority Credit Union
