During the last fifteen years we have seen slow steady growth for your credit Union.  We were able to have slow growth even during the current tough economy. We have added several member friendly services during my tenure.  I recently retired after 36 years as a State employee where I was an Information Technology Specialist with Iowa Workforce Development.  I would like to continue to serve on your board and thank you for your support in advance.
