“Our OAS Federal Credit Union needs bold, capable leaders with the vision to take our credit union to the next level. We have just crossed the 245 million mark in assets in FY19. This is a huge milestone that we have only our members to thank for. As our credit union continues to grow at a rapid pace, it is key that we stay focused on what matters most: YOU-the member.”
As a current board member, I have helped the OASFCU successfully achieve its modernization journey to help build a strong foundation. Transformation is the next phase and I will focus on: Process Automation, Data Analytics, and Identity and Privacy.
I’d love to continue to serve on the Board of Directors to build on the efforts we have achieved thus far and bring digital innovations that will provide an enriched banking experience to all our members.
