Dear Member,

As a member of Coast Central Credit Union, you are an owner.  As such, you are entitled to vote for those who will represent you on the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee.  Your Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee consists of 12 volunteers who each serve a three-year term.  The Board sets the credit union’s policies, guides its strategic planning, and works closely with credit union Management to help ensure that Coast Central Credit Union continues to be one of the top credit unions in the country.  The Supervisory Committee ensures that the Board of Directors and Management meet required financial reporting objectives and safeguard members’ assets.  This year, there are five positions open for election.

We thank you for your membership and encourage you to use your right to vote.


Brendan McKenny
Chair, Board Nominating Committee
Board Member since 2009

Key Info

Coast Central’s Board of Directors has elections every year, as each year, Board members and Supervisory Committee members come up for reelection. Information regarding how to submit applications to run for a position is communicated in the summer and fall Coastline Quarterly newsletters each year which goes to all members with statements, either via paper or email, depending on the member’s selection.

This marks only the 2nd time in 10 years for the need for ballots to be mailed to the membership, as there are five individuals running for four Board positions and one individual running for one Supervisory Committee position. Prior to last year, there were always an equal number of incumbents running for positions open.

2024 ballots were mailed to members of record as of 12/8/23 in early January from an independent Wisconsin vendor.  For joint memberships, ballots were sent to the attention of the primary member. Fully completed ballots must be received using the provided envelope no later than Wednesday, January 31, 2024.  Ballots received after this date will be void.
