Three Open Board Positions at MMCCU
Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union has three open board positions. Members will vote on these positions at the Annual Meeting on July 26. (Learn more about the Annual Meeting here.) Board members are volunteers and come from the membership. They come from various professions and bring a passion to get involved and help steer the credit union. Board members oversee and govern the management of the credit union.
MMCCU’s longest tenured board member, John Dean, retired this year after serving the board for more than 40 years in various positions from chairman to treasurer.
“At a credit union, the board is strictly volunteer and is not compensated at all. At most banks, as a board member you get paid. In my 44 years on the board, I didn’t receive any amount of money,” said Dean, adding that it’s this emphasis on members that sets credit unions apart and it’s the variety of representation serving on the board that help it succeed.
“Board Members come from the membership and the membership comprises of both professionals and nonprofessionals,” he explained. “We had doctors on the board, lawyers on the board, we had people that were head of maintenance, people head of laundry services, IT… it was diverse just like the credit union membership is diverse.”
Open to all members of the credit union, the goal of the Annual Meeting is to elect three open positions for the Board of Directors and to present the credit union’s successes of 2020.
“One of the ways Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union demonstrates our uniqueness in the financial services world is by holding our Annual Meeting with our member-owners,” said Brooks Burt, Board Chairman.
