Get Involved

There are several ways to get involved at North Coast Credit Union. As a member of North Coast you have a vote. Attend our Annual Meetings where we elect our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee, or even consider volunteering for a position. We also host other events throughout the year to celebrate and serve our members.

Member Appreciation BBQs

Each Summer we have Member Appreciation BBQs, both in Whatcom and Skagit counties. We enjoy providing a meal and getting to thank members for their continued support of North Coast.

Shred
Day

Every Earth Day we like to offer our members a free shred day.

This allows our members a secure way to shred sensitive documents. All shred is then recycled.

Annual
Meetings

Every April we hold an Annual Meeting. We report on our past year's progress and hold elections for the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee. 

Credit Union
Volunteers

A Credit Union is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors and a Supervisory Committee. These individuals serve as oversight on the running of the organization by monitoring the health of our organization and determining areas for growth and redirection.

Board of Directors

The Board of directors provides governance for the credit union; to set policy, plan strategic direction, ensure the safety and soundness, ensure that the mission is carried out, maintain open communications with members and management, select the CEO, and direct review of CEO's progress in achieving goals and objectives, and report to members as required by law.
