Get Involved

Everyone has a voice at North Coast Credit Union. One of the best things about being a member of a credit union is that we all have a voice in how our credit union is managed. Our voices are heard at our Annual Meetings when each member attending has the opportunity to vote for Board Members and members of our Supervisory Committee. This year we have 4 open positions on our Board of Directors and 2 open positions on our Supervisory Committee. Even better, our Board of Directors and Supervisor Committee are made up of North Coast Members (eligible after 18 months).

For questions or to submit a nomination, contact Susan Lanahan at, (360) 685-4005 or mail your nomination to Susan Lanahan, North Coast Credit Union, 1100 Dupont Street, Bellingham WA 98225

Deadline for nominations is Friday March 17, 2023.
