Your Credit Union. Your Vote.
At OAS FCU we make sure to give all of our members a chance to vote in our elections. If you’re interested in additional participation and leadership opportunities, you can also volunteer with us (scroll down for more info).
Board of Directors and Credit Committee Elections
Our elections are accessible and inclusive. At OAS FCU we believe in the democratic process; we also believe in the importance of technology to make everything we offer more convenient and available to our membership.
For this reason, OAS FCU uses eVoting, an electronic system that allows members to elect the volunteers for the Board of Directors and the Credit Committee in the yearly elections. The change from paper to electronic voting was implemented over 12 years ago, to celebrate the credit unions’ democratic right and to expand participation to a membership that lives all over the globe. We were one of the earliest credit unions in the United States to offer this solution.
Making yourself heard
Credit Unions like ours are unique financial institutions. Each member acquires a $5 share, which entitles them to vote in the annual election of the Board of Directors and Credit Committee. Unlike banks, we work on the one member, one share, and one vote system.
Participating in the elections gives you, our member, a voice on the direction the credit union will have in the future. You have the opportunity to choose the candidates that best represent and share your ideals, and who you think have the leadership and vision to make sure that the institution remains focused on serving your needs in every decision.
