Board of Directors

Chairman's Report

Our credit union was founded 78 years ago, and yet today we remain focused on the same mission – serving our members. In 2013, we gladly welcomed USU Credit Union to the Goldenwest Credit Union family. We want all of our members to know they can count on their credit union to take care of them and help them achieve their financial goals.

Once again, we set ourselves apart from other financial institutions with quality member service, calculated growth strategies, and innovative programs. Our members earned high returns for the tenth consecutive year with the bonus dividend program. We were elated as Goldenwest hit a historic milestone during the fourth quarter when assets exceeded $1 billion for the first time in credit union history.

I’m pleased to report that during a year of remarkable growth, Goldenwest remained financially sound and strong. Our commitment to quality and the values established by our credit union founding fathers is set securely on a firm foundation.

Our credit union is governed by a member-elected Board of Directors with competent experience in strategic planning, leadership, financial oversight, technology, innovation, advocacy and member service. Board members are considered trustees for the credit union and serve without pay.

Upon merging with USU Credit Union, Goldenwest added two seats to the Board of Directors. Steve Carroll and Brandon Hendrickson were trustees for the USU Charter Credit Union Board, and now serve on the Goldenwest Board. In August, the Board of Directors appointed life-long Goldenwest member Dan Musgrave to fill a position on the Board vacated by Tony Reynolds. Previous to his appointment, Dan served on the Supervisory Committee.

I wish to thank the Board of Directors for their vision and proactive approach in building our credit union for future generations. Our members are the true beneficiaries of their service.

We appreciate the dedicated management team and employees who have contributed to our unwavering mission of exceptional member service throughout this busy and productive year. Together, we look forward to the continued success of our credit union.

With appreciation,

Bill Hart
