Did you know your credit union is overseen by fellow members? It is - by an all-volunteer elected Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee. Each member commits to volunteering his/her time to keep your credit union running smoothly and looks at WSECU through the same lens as you - from a member perspective.

The Benefit of a Financial Cooperative

Unlike bank customers who don't have the benefit of voting for who oversees their financial institution, credit union members do. Please exercise your right to vote in our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Elections. Voting takes place February 5-27 and you'll have access to candidate bios to help inform your decision.  

A Chance to Win and Support Your Favorite Non-profit

Watch your email - or mail if you don't have an email address on file with us - for information and how to vote. We'll also be having a special drawing that you'll be automatically entered into when you vote for the chance to win* $250.00 for you and $250.00 for a 501(c)(3) non-profit of your choice.  

Thanks in advance for supporting the elected volunteers who support you.  


*No purchase necessary. Must be 18 or older to enter. One entry per person if ballot received via USPS. Four entries per person if ballot is submitted online. WSECU employees and elected volunteers and their families are not eligible. Membership required for entry. Non-voters are also eligible to enter only by mailing their name, address and telephone number to: WSECU Marketing Department, PO Box WSECU, Olympia, WA 98507. Mail-in and online entries must arrive no later than Feb. 27, 2018. Drawing will take place at the offices of SBS and winners will be notified in March 2018. Each drawing has a cash value of $250.00 for the winner and $250.00 donation made by WSECU to a non-profit of the winner's choice. Non-profit must be registered as a 501(c)(3) with the WA SOS. By participating in the drawing, you agree to give WSECU exclusive use of your name, story and non-profit for newsletter, web and/or any media we deem necessary. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received. Winners may be responsible for applicable state or federal taxes.
