We all know that WSECU is a great credit union, providing excellent service to its members and safeguarding their financial assets and information. Your credit union is based on democratic principles, which sets us apart from banks. To fulfill this obligation, we elect our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee based on our individual membership in the credit union. Your vote in our annual elections keeps our credit union strong and secure.

If you have voted in our elections in the past, thank you! Keep on voting. If you haven’t voted before, please consider doing so this year. It’s quick, easy and online. If you use Online Banking, you can vote at the same time you are managing your account.

Additionally, this year WSECU is offering an incentive to members for voting. After casting your vote, you will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win* a $250 VISA® gift card, and a $250 donation to the 501(c)3 non-profit charity of your choice. Better yet, there won’t be just one winner; 10 members will be selected at random from among all voters. You’ll find all the details in our news article.

Voting ends February 28 – please vote and have a say in choosing the volunteers who will oversee your credit union in the coming year.

Thank you,

Your Supervisory Committee
