A Word from Leadership

LELAND "ROCKY" JOHNSON – Chair / Board of Directors
One of the important roles of the Board as a whole is to continue to protect the safety and soundness of the credit union that exists to provide its members with more opportunities for their financial success.

Thank you for taking this opportunity to learn about OnPoint Community Credit Union’s Board of Directors election process. Within this website you will find information on each nominee, including their qualifications and reasons for wanting to serve.

A Director’s Important Role

OnPoint Community Credit Union is a local, not-for-profit financial cooperative. It is owned by you and your fellow members. Our Board is made up of nine Directors who represent the entire membership. Each year, three of the nine positions are open for election. The Board, acting as fiduciary to all members, is responsible for oversight and determining the strategic direction of the Credit Union. A talented staff of expert professionals, headed by President/CEO Rob Stuart, runs OnPoint’s day-to-day operations consistent with policies and aimed at achieving the strategic objectives set by the Board.

OnPoint’s membership has grown to 465,000, and our assets are at $9 billion. One of the important roles of the Board as a whole is to continue to protect the safety and soundness of the credit union that exists to provide its members with more opportunities for their financial success. This means a Director has considerable responsibilities in helping steer OnPoint in a successful strategic direction.

Nominee Determination

Finding qualified, committed individuals to serve on OnPoint’s Board is more important than ever before. OnPoint’s Nominating Committee is made up of sitting Board Directors and OnPoint members at-large. This year’s committee was comprised of committee Chair Keith Thomajan, Amy Slagle, Felicia Tripp, Craig Brown, Jeanne Enders, and Payton Wayne. The Nominating Committee administered a thorough search for interested candidates and conducted careful reviews of submitted applications.

New Election Process

This year, the number of open positions is the same as the number of nominees. As voted on by the board, in 2022 we will implement a non-voting format whenever the number of nominees matches the number of open positions. This format will remain in place until the Board votes to make another change. The three nominees will be elected and officially announced at the 2022 Annual Meeting.

Annual Meeting

OnPoint’s annual meeting will be held on Thursday, March 17, 2022, at the OnPoint branch located at 2688 NW Vaughn St., Portland, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. There is one nominee for each open Director position, and accordingly there will be no vote and the nominees will be elected by acclamation. The nominees who will be elected are Melissa Damm, Katherine Durham and Daren Nakata.

I thank you, the membership, for your loyalty and trust. Your Board looks forward to continuing its commitment to providing the highest-level oversight functions it can—always in the best interest of OnPoint’s membership.
