The voting period for the two special Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Board of Director elections has closed and the official results are in (with voting taking place April 26 – May 13). The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues want to congratulate Nader Moghaddam and Jose Lara!

Moghaddam, CEO of Financial Partners CU, has been elected to fill the position of a resigning board director in District 6/Class B. This position is elected at-large nationwide and will expire at the adjournment of CUNA’s Annual General Meeting in 2023. District 6 is comprised of California, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, American Samoa, Guam, Johnston Atoll, Midway Atoll, Northern Mariana Islands, Palmyra Atoll and Wake Atoll. Class B credit unions are those serving 38,000 – 141,000 members. The voter response rate was 71 percent.

In conjunction, the Leagues would like to thank Geri LaChance, CEO of SESLOC FCU, for participating as a candidate in this “contested” CUNA Board District 6/Class B seat.

Additionally, Lara, COO of SchoolsFirst FCU, has been elected to fill the position of a resigning board director in District 6/Class C. The position is elected at-large nationwide and will expire at the adjournment of CUNA’s Annual General Meeting in 2024. Class C credit unions are those serving at least 141,000 members or more. The voter response rate was 60 percent.

"We applaud Nader and Jose for taking on the important responsibilities within their new roles as directors on the CUNA Board," said Diana Dykstra, president and CEO of the Leagues. "Their experience will serve them well. They are accomplished leaders who will serve our interests, and we look forward to their leadership."
