Help us celebrate International Credit Union Week October 13-16, 2020
Each year we come together to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) to raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year's global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world, but credit unions stayed true to their cooperative principles and stepped up during this time of economic uncertainty. Hope is a global resource that everyone has a right to feel and experience. This year's ICU Day theme “Inspiring hope for a global community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education and support.
To help celebrate, please stop by one of our branches to receive a sweet gift that we've prepared for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

2020 Annual Meeting and Election Update
2020 ANNUAL MEETING - Thursday, December 10
Due to local Covid-19 social distancing mandates, our 2020 annual meeting was postponed. The 2020 annual meeting has been rescheduled to 7pm on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at the Benson branch and we hope that you will join us then for an informative evening.
2021 Annual Election Nominations
Our 2021 election will be carried out by mail ballot (should there be additional qualified candidates) and will fill two 3-year term positions on the Board of Directors. If necessary, ballots will be mailed to members in January and the election results will be announced at the 2021 Annual Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 24, 2021.
The Nominating Committee has nominated the following candidates for the offices indicated:
Two Board of Director Positions (3-year terms)
Richard Buzby - After working for 50 years in Alaska's aviation field, Dick is retired. He is one of the original 14 members that started the credit union in 1967 and has served as a volunteer committee or Board member for many of his years with us.
Rebecca Hanson - Now retired, Rebecca had been employed in the accounting field for 38 years. She has been a member of Northern skies for 42 years, and has served on the Board of Directors since 2003.
Other members interested in becoming candidates can qualify by the petition method. Official petition forms must be used and will be available on October 17, 2021, by calling the credit union at (907) 561-1407. The signatures and account numbers of at least 1% of members are required in order to qualify as a candidate by the petition method. Petitions must be returned to the credit union by 6 p.m. on November 13, 2020. If no additional candidates qualify by petition, the slate of candidates will remain as proposed by the Nominating Committee. If there is only one candidate for each position, the election will not be conducted by mail ballot and, as long as there is at least one candidate for each position, there will be no floor nominations.
