Northern Colorado Credit Union Board of Director’s thanks Walt Marx for his 17 years of service and wish him well on his next venture. The Board is working on a leadership transition plan with Mitchell, Stankovic and Associates and is now ready to recruit for an experienced leader to build on the organization’s history and drive growth in the future.
Northern Colorado Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative existing solely to provide members with affordable financial services and products to achieve their financial goals. Originally chartered in 1935 as the College Credit Union of Greeley, Co., the credit union has expanded its field of membership to include all of Weld County, Colorado obtaining a community charter as part of its state charter. As membership has grown, additional financial products and services have been added to better serve our members.
The credit union is seeking a CEO/President who will be responsible for the leadership and direction of all credit union activities in accordance with policies and will conduct business development activities as a way to promote growth and participate in community and business affairs. The CEO/President must have strong interpersonal and presentation skills in order to effectively represent the credit union on both local and national levels.
The ideal candidate will have:
"We want our leagues and association to deliver quality products, services and solutions, and be hungry for growth and quality improvement. However, as an industry, we should tread very carefully on anything that may appear as if we are not working together cooperatively," Stankovic warned. "Our power with the regulators is through our collective membership strength and numbers. If we begin to promote a more fragmented approach, we lose this momentum. Credit unions, the leagues and CUNA need to work together."

Brianne Hurford gave a brief introduction to the World Council of Credit Unions. She updated the group on the progress of the Global Women’s Leadership Network. Currently, there are 1050 members, 27 Sister Societies in 11 countries, 37 scholarships, 5 Empowerment Grants, and $1M+ raised since inception in 2009. She highlighted the impact of our 2014 Empowerment Grant projects and encouraged the group to get involved in our 2015 projects via email, Skype, telephone or in-person.
Sue Longson gave a short presentation on Civics 101, inclusive of a School House Rock video entitled “I’m just a Bill.”
The key take-away was to encourage folks to get involved and not to be anxious about chatting with our State and Federal legislators as no one knows our story better than we do! The League will assist in arranging meetings and provide a script, if necessary. When meeting with our legislators, it is essential to ALWAYS have an ask, and NEVER mention our PAC or a campaign. In Nevada, we interview candidates for political races to introduce ourselves and credit unions, this cements relationships from the beginning, which leads to support of our cause from both sides. Get involved: it’s fun and will have a lasting impact on our movement!!
Brandi Stankovic talked with the group about the future of the Nevada Sister Society. The group decided that in 2016, to focus on financial literacy; and will continue to partner with the league and chapter for several events as well.
