Your Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 59th Annual Meeting of ALPS Federal Credit Union. This year, the meeting will be held on Saturday, February 9 from 11 am to 1 pm at the Sitka Westmark Banquet Room.

There is one board position to be filled at this annual meeting. The nominating committee has nominated the following member for re-election to the board of directors with a three-year term ending in 2022:

Michelle Cleaver (existing director)
Happy New Year ALPS FCU Members!  I have been serving as your Director since early in 2018 and was most recently elected Vice-Chairperson. I was born in Juneau, Alaska in 1962 and moved to Sitka in 1986. Sitka has been home ever since. My work experience has included video production, education, commercial fishing, construction, and retail sales. For fun, I support roller derby, take walks up Harbor Mountain, and spend time exploring Southeast Alaska by boat. My husband John and I are avid travelers and love to see what the world has to offer. I look forward to continuing to serve on your Board of Directors.

The bylaws of ALPS FCU provide that there may be nominations by petition. Nomination by petition forms may be picked up at the credit union at 401 Halibut Point Road, Sitka, Alaska or 312 North Nordic Drive, Petersburg, Alaska, or requested via email at membersvc@alpsfcu.org. Petition forms must be turned in to the credit union by January 31, 2019.  Petitions must be signed by at least one percent of the membership in order to qualify the nomination. Additional requirements for nomination by petition are included with each nomination form. When there is only one candidate nominated for each open position, the bylaws state that there will not be an election by ballot. ALPS FCU bylaws state that additional nominations are by petition only. Nominations from the floor are not permitted.

Please join us for the annual meeting of members on February 9th. A brunch buffet and beverages will be provided, and door prizes will be drawn for those able to attend. Most importantly, your Board of Directors, Supervisory Committee, and the CEO will provide annual reports to the membership so that you are informed of credit union accomplishments over the past year and our outlook for the coming year. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Respectfully Submitted,
Courtney Ainslie
