2020 Director Election

Summerland & District Credit Union's 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 during the 2020 Director Election. Board members whose terms expire in 2020 are Director Basil Cogill, Director Richard Finlay, and Director Bev Skinner. Director Cogill has announced that after 19 years of serving on the SDCU board he is retiring in May 2020.
