2018 Director Election

Summerland & District Credit Unions’ Board of Directors is made up of people who have been elected to the board from our membership, and who share an interest in setting policies that guide the direction of the credit union. The board represents the real owners of the credit union – the members – and is charged with the responsibility of overseeing the credit union’s affairs so that its financial position is maintained and protected.

Our members will vote to fill 3 three-year terms and 1 two-year term during the 2018 Director Election. Board members whose terms expire in 2018 are Director Connie Denesiuk, Director Dan Dinsmore, and Director Richard Finlay. As well, Director James Hopkins is retiring from the board in May, which will open a 2 year term. 

If you are interested in taking on a more active role with the credit union, we encourage you to submit your nomination papers for the 2018 Director Election prior to the submission deadline of February 14, 2018. You must be a member in good standing of the credit union and be 19 years of age or older. For a Candidate’s Handbook, please contact Sandy Laidman, Board Secretary, at 250-494-6052.
