Potential candidates should be able to demonstrate and provide the ability to:

  • Deal with business, financial and social issues at a corporate level

Voting

Why Vote for your Board of Directors

One of the many benefits of credit union membership is your ability to vote for the Board of Directors. As a member-owned, member-led institution, our Board is comprised of your fellow members; members you choose through an annual voting process.

Why voting matters to you

The Board of Directors approves the direction your credit union takes.

They’re directly responsible for our strategic and business plan direction which acts as Lakeland Credit Union’s roadmap to achieving long-term success and a prosperous future.


The policies the Board of Directors approves impacts YOU.

Have your interests represented by the leaders you help elect when policies are approved, including guiding principles for annual member common share dividends.


The Board of Directors is member-elected.

Very few places you bank, or do any business with encourage you to vote for the people who steward the strength of the organization.

We've made it easy for you

Get to know the Board candidates on Director Candidates. Reviewing the candidates, getting to know the board objectives and casting your vote will take no more than 20 minutes.
