Make Your Mark

If you're a champion of the credit union cause, an experienced Director with a variety of excellent skills and an all-round, community-minded individual that's looking for a way to make a difference in your credit union, then you may well be just the kind of candidate we're looking for!

 

Voting

 

Vote for your 2020 Board of Directors - February 2020

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. 

Election results will be announced at our Annual General Meeting on March 4, 2020 at The Centennial Centre in Bonnyville.
