I am pleased to be a candidate for a second term on your CUNA HR/TD Council Executive Committee (EC). I have been an active member on the EC over the last three years participating on the development of the HR/TD Award and Selection Committee, and most recently as the HR/TD Conference Chairman. The HR/TD Council is an invaluable resource with a wealth of information and support for HR and Training professionals. I have benefitted greatly from this council and feel privileged to be part of the leadership team charged with facilitating the direction of the council. I am a member of our Senior Management Team here at Maine Savings FCU, and have had a role in developing the strategic direction for Human Resources and Training, as well as for the entire organization. I have an MBA and a Masters in Strategic Studies along with a strong background in leadership. I believe this combination of experience and education will enable me to continue to serve you effectively as a member of the Executive Committee.

For the past five years I have been a participant on the CUNA HR/TD conference committee, where we have promoted human resources and training as strategic partners in our business. As a member on the conference committee I’ve had great opportunities to explore many aspects of HR and training. Most importantly, I have learned so much from the credit union professionals associated with the CUNA Council and made lifelong friends. Our council is the best industry-specific resource available to credit union HR/TD professionals and I would be honored to serve as a member of the Executive Committee. If elected, I will use my leadership experience and passion for our profession to contribute to our important goals and mission.

Fellow HR/TD Council Members, I'd like the opportunity to represent YOU as a proactive member of the CUNA HR/TD Executive Council. I've had the pleasure of working in credit unions for the past 8 years and the last 3 years as a member of the HR/TD Council. I have close to 40 years in the HR environment in a variety of industries. During this past three years, I have actively worked on the HR/TD Conference Committee. This has given me the opportunity to speak with many of you as well as share your comments and innovative ideas with our Council Committee Members. Many times, I simply enjoy the fellowship and networking opportunities our fantastic Council provides. I appreciate your vote and look forward to seeing you at our next conference in Anaheim, speaking to someone you have recommended for membership or exchanging an email discussing a new proposed idea. Thank you for your support!

I would be honored and find it very rewarding to serve on the Executive Committee for CUNA’s HR/TD Council. I currently lead the Human Resource and Talent Management functions at Baxter Credit Union (BCU) and have been a council member for 17 years. This past year I was involved with the Membership Committee and I would welcome the opportunity to become more involved with my peers from other institutions to network, share and learn best practices.

I have my bachelor’s degree in Human Recourses, an MBA, and am a member of SHRM and World at Work. Thank you for the consideration.

I recently joined ECU as Director of Human Resources. I previously served on ECU’s Board of Directors since 2008 and was an active member of the HR and Compensation Committee. While I don’t have a traditional HR path within the credit union, I have more than 20 years of diverse Human Resources experience. I believe that I have a lot to offer the executive committee because of my experience in both Private and Public sectors in all facets of business including Retail, Distribution, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Packaging. I believe that my background and experience offer a “fresh set of eyes” coupled with a passion for HR and for the Credit Union industry.
