InRoads Board Member Retires After 41 Years of Service


After more than four decades as a volunteer with the credit union, Richard Louie, InRoads’ longest serving Board Member, announced his retirement from the board in November 2020. The entire executive team, all employees, and his fellow Board members have never known a time that Richard was not an important part of the credit union.

“I’m so honored to have worked alongside Richard for so many years,” said Board Chair, David Graham. “He will be greatly missed.”

Brooke Van Vleet, InRoads President and CEO, praised Richard for his service.

“Credit unions rely on dedicated volunteers like Mr. Louie to bring an informed perspective to the strategic direction of the organization. He is one of the great ones. We will miss him on the Board, his decades of service and impact on the credit union will be remembered.”

Robin Balza, InRoads Chief Lending Officer, echoed this sentiment.

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Louie since I started working for the credit union back in 1979,” said Balza. “His dedication to moving the credit union forward has always been integral to our overall success. He is a true member advocate.”

Following Louie’s retirement, the Board appointed Lindsay Luttrell to fill Louie’s seat. Luttrell has served on the InRoads Supervisory Committee since 2017 and is an educator with the St. Helens School District.
