Leadership positions filled at UECU

Three volunteer leadership positions were filled at United Educators Credit Union's (UECU) Annual Meeting of Membership in April.

Al Grandt of Woodbury and Owen Plauda of Vadnais Heights were reelected to the UECU Board of Directors and will serve three-year terms.

Grandt was re-elected as vice chairperson and Plauda as secretary to the board of directors. The board of directors sets the policies and direction of UECU.

Marie Jo Buettner of St. Paul was re-elected to the UECU supervisory committee.

This committee ensures the financial stability and soundness of the credit union through regular auditing of operational and accounting procedures. Buettner will also serve a three-year term.

All directors and supervisory committee members are volunteer members of the credit union. This structure sets credit unions apart from other financial institutions - they are run by members for members.

UECU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative celebrating 50 years of serving Minnesota Educators and their families. Because of its cooperative structure, the UECU is governed by a volunteer board of directors, elected from and by its membership.

Based in the Twin Cities, UECU operates offices in Woodbury, Eden Prairie and Columbia Heights, serving members statewide with a full line of financial services, including insured savings products, checking, consumer loans, youth and organization accounts and online banking.
