Have you received your Coast Capital Board of Governor’s election ballot yet?

Your vote matters! Thanks to your efforts in the last election, we have made quite a difference to the governance of Coast Capital. With your help, we forced the removal of Bill Wellburn from the Board, as well as helped the CEO move on. While we have much more work to do, FICOM tells us that we should be proud of the changes that we have helped make happen at Coast Capital.

The voting package contains recommendations on how to vote.
We think Members are smarter than that. Read the descriptions of the candidates and make up your own mind. It is your credit union. Vote your way!

Want to know how we will vote?
We prefer to vote for the non-recommended candidates which we feel will help bring more diverse views and more member focus to Coast Capital’s Board. For your vote to count, remember that you MUST vote for the exact number of candidates as there are positions to fill: Three! Our first pick is Mark Latham. He is an excellent candidate and has been working with us for years to help restore member control to Coast Capital Savings Credit Union. He is a strong believer in democratic reforms and was instrumental in helping us write up our Special Resolutions last year. But please do not take our word for it, read the election material and make up your own minds. Members are smart. You do not need us to make a recommendation.

Mark Latham has worked with us to help Restore Member Control to Coast Capital. Here he is helping us deliver our Special Resolution Signed Petitions to Coast Capital Headquarters last year.

We know Mark Latham very well and he has worked with us for several years in our fight for restoring Member control in BC Credit Unions. He donated his time and money to help restore member control at Coast Capital. You can see Mark in the picture above when he helped us deliver our signed petitions to Coast Capital Head Quarters last year. He’s a nice guy.

If you feel that Coast Capital’s slogan “Have Your Say” should be more than just a slogan, then please Vote for Mark. He has been working to restore democracy in cooperative organizations for over 20 years.

If you have not received your ballot yet, please go pick one up at any branch. Read the material and make up our own minds. It is your Credit Union. Your vote matters!

We reached our goal of 300 signatures for our petitions! Thank you!
