To our Members:
The Management of Banner Federal Credit Union expresses its appreciation to the following members for offering to serve on the seven member Board of Directors. Two vacancies exist, and the winners of the election will be announced at the annual meeting on April 27, 2010. Good board members mean sound policies and oversight that benefit you. Please take the time to vote. Carl J. Cowgur
I would be honored to serve on the Credit Union board of directors, if I am elected, and will faithfully execute my duties to the best of my ability.
I have had the opportunity to serve on the Banner Federal Credit Union Board for the past 6 years. It has been an active time and I have learned a considerable amount about the credit union and its challenges and opportunities. I would like to continue to serve on the board using the experience and knowledge obtained from serving these last several years.
I am currently Bannerâ€™s senior director of capital and financial planning and have responsibility for the capital planning process and controls, administration of the operating budget, and the strategic financial planning. Prior to joining Banner I worked for Schaller Anderson, and have also worked as a staff accountant in the hospitality industry, an off-shoring operations consultant, and for Bank of America as a credit card fraud specialist. I have a Masterâ€™s degree from the Wirtschaftuniversitat (Vienna School of Economics), where I specialized in international finance, and a Bachelorâ€™s degree in Finance from Arizona State University. As a graduate student I was a research assistant for the banking professor and performed banking research for publications. My background in finance and operations and exposure to banking would hopefully make me an asset to the Banner Federal Credit Union board, and I am willing to work hard to help the credit union grow and enhance its products and customer service. Thank you for your consideration.
The Credit Union provides a great service to our employees. Serving on the board is a win-win situation for me. It allows me the opportunity to continue to grow and learn, while at the same time provides me a vehicle to give something back to the dedicated employees who give so much to Banner. I have been with Banner Health for 9 years, 7 of them as a CNO. I am currently the Chief Nursing Officer for Banner Gateway Medical Center. I am a Registered Nurse with my Masters of Nursing Science degree in Administration. I am also a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. I have over 33 years of experience as a healthcare professional, with a complement of clinical, teaching and administrative experience. My background gives me both the financial and operational perspectives that can add value to the Banner Federal Credit Union Board. Thank you for your consideration.
