Our Board

2022 Board Transitions

Effective August 31, 2022

We would like to thank Bill Wilby for all of his service to gfcu over the last nine years. Bill has stepped down from his role as Board Chair/Director, and we sincerely wish him all the best!

As a result of this change, we are pleased to advise that Michael Strukoff has been elected to the Board Chair vacancy. Michael is a 39-year director at gfcu, holding the Chair role for many years.

Effective April 27, 2022

We want to welcome our newest Director Brandie Nunn. She joins the gfcu Board of Directors after being appointed by acclamation in February 2022.




Our Board

The GFCU Board is put in place each year by means of an election held with our entire membership. All members are entitled to their vote every year. The GFCU Board of Directors consists of nine members and helps to provide direction on strategic objectives and policy and is also concerned with evaluating the performance and progress of our Credit Union and its appointed executives. They also hire and provide input to our Chief Executive Officer.
