The GoWest Board is working strategically to modernize the Board to a more manageable size post-merger integration. A number of seats were sunset by the Board on Dec. 31, 2022 and two more seats are targeted to sunset by the end of 2023.  This includes the seats that Todd Erickson, President, and CEO, CapEd Credit Union; and Greg Mills, President and CEO, Aventa Credit Union; who are both intending to serve out their current terms – therefore you will not see either of these seats addressed in this election cycle.

There are two seats up for election this year.  The incumbents are eligible and interested in re-election.  They include:

  • Ray Lancaster, President and CEO, Pyramid Federal Credit Union
  • Stephanie Teubner, President and CEO, Blue Federal Credit Union

The GoWest Board of Directors is comprised of At-Large Directors elected from Regular Member credit unions. The GoWest at-large governance model allows the most qualified candidates to seek election to the Board. For eligibility, job description, and qualifications click here.
