"My husband and I moved to Alaska in ‘76. I went to work almost immediately for an insurance company. Several years later the doors were thrown open to join Alaska USA. We retired in ‘89 and took Alaska USA with us. We bought a 37.5-foot RV and lived the nomad life for 9 years. Yes, Alaska USA went with us. No matter where we were, I could talk to a caring, helpful person. What a help and joy it was to know that no matter what problems we had (RV blew a gasket, two flat tires), Alaska USA was there to help. We settled down here in Peoria in ‘99 and do you know, MY credit union is right here with me. Thank you for all these years of help."

The Alaska USA Federal Credit Union Nominating Committee is accepting letters of interest from members who wish to become candidates in 2016 for positions available on the Board of Directors. Credit union officials serve in an unpaid volunteer capacity and must be available to attend monthly meetings.
Positions available: Board of Directors – 2 three-year term positions
In accordance with the credit union's bylaws, it is the duty of the Nominating Committee to nominate at least one member for each vacancy on the Board of Directors. The Committee nominates members they consider qualified and who represent the membership and membership areas served. They attempt to have a cross-sectional representation of the membership, avoiding concentrations by any one membership area, organization, employer, rank, grade, or other common denominator.
Members who submit letters of interest should include their full name, account number, current address, phone number, qualifications, and any related experience.
Letters should be addressed to:
Nominating Committee Alaska USA Federal Credit Union P.O. Box 196613 Anchorage, Alaska 99519-6613
Letters of interest must be received no later than August 28, 2015. Names and qualifications of candidates nominated will be published in the October issue of the Journal, with information regarding the petition method of candidacy. Ballots will be mailed to members in April 2016, and the election results will be announced at the 2016 Annual Meeting.
