Meeting Members’ Needs Where Members Live


New Fort Collins Service Center

Research shows people value being able to choose how they want to bank. For the big moments in life, like buying a home or settling a loved one’s estate, many still prefer talking
to a real person, in person.

It’s why we now have 40 service centers — from Pueblo and Canon City all the way up to Fort Collins. And why we’ll keep growing. Member service through expansion is important. But so, too, is bringing the benefit of owner-membership to new communities. Now, more than ever, our neighbors and homegrown businesses need a financial institution that’s for people, not profits.

Nominations are open for the election of Ent Credit Union’s Board of Directors for the year 2021. There will be three (3) three-year term positions open on the Board of Directors.

The Board Nominations and Election Committee nominates the following candidates to be Directors on the Board for a three-year term: Ronald P. Martinez, CFA, Pam Nicholson and Chris Vadala.

Additional nominations for the Board of Directors may be made by petition, signed by a minimum of 500 Ent Credit Union members. A separate petition must be completed and submitted for each nomination.

Each nominee must submit with the petition a statement of qualifications, biographical data and a certificate signed by the nominee stating he/she is agreeable to nomination and will serve if elected to office. Petition forms and policies are available from Kathy Haskett, Manager Executive Administration and Board Relations, at Ent Credit Union headquarters, 7250 Campus
Drive, Colorado Springs, Colorado, 80920. Petitions, biographical data and certifications for each nominee by petition must be returned to Kathy no later than Monday, November 16, 2020.

If more than one person is nominated for each board position, an election will be held. If an election is required, information and procedures will be provided to members with December 2020 statements (sent out in January 2021). If there is only one nominee for each board position, no election will be conducted. There will be no nominations from the floor at the annual meeting. Newly elected Ent Credit Union Board of Directors will be announced at the annual meeting.
