Two Unitus Community Credit Union Leaders Elected to Board Chair Positions at Nonprofits
October 18, 2023
Two executive leaders from Unitus Community Credit Union, based in Portland, Oregon, are modeling the organization’s commitment to service by taking on board chair roles at two local nonprofits.
President and CEO Steven Stapp, and Senior Vice President and Chief Retail Officer Corlinda Wooden, are donating their time and expertise to WorldOregon and Sunshine Division, respectively.
Stapp began his service to WorldOregon in 2019, serving as a member of the board of trustees. WorldOregon helps bring awareness to the community on issues such as sustainability, politics, trade, and social injustices. Stapp was just elected to lead the executive committee, serving as chair of the board of trustees.
“I’m truly honored to take on the role of chair at WorldOregon,” said Stapp. “I deeply care about the organization and its impact. I believe when we engage in learning about other cultures, we gain perspective into solutions about our own challenges.”
Corlinda Wooden recently began serving as board chair for Sunshine Division. The organization provides food and clothing relief to Portland families and individuals in need. Wooden has served Sunshine Division since 2019 and believes in its mission of providing accessible services to our local community.
“Credit unions were founded on the principle of ‘people helping people’ and that is also at the heart of our work at Sunshine Division,” explained Wooden. “I am humbled to lead the board of directors and believe service is a calling; our organization would not exist without the commitment of its volunteers.”
Unitus Community Credit Union encourages employees to volunteer in the communities it serves. As part of the credit union’s commitment to community involvement, employees are offered unlimited company time off to participate in volunteer opportunities with community partners. In addition, each staff member receives four hours of volunteer time off to serve an organization of their choosing.
