Consumers Credit Union recently introduced eight candidates to fill four positions on the Waukegan-based, member-owned credit union's board of directors.

The election is scheduled for March 13 at Keylime Cove Resort Gurnee, in conjunction with the credit union's 83rd annual meeting.

The nominees for the board of directors are Ann Campanella of Gurnee, Troy Louis of Lake Villa, Joseph Rajcevich of Waukegan, Michael Raysakis of Grayslake, Shawn Rouse of Lake Villa, Kimberly Sampey of Chicago, Frank Soyka of Green Oaks, and Matthew St. Cyr of Zion. Campanella, Louis, Rajcevich and Frank Soyka are incumbents

"One of the many rights members enjoy when belonging to a member-owned organization is having a voice in the credit union's governance," said Sean M. Rathjen, CCU president. "Members also have the right to vote for candidates for our volunteer board of directors. We're fortunate to have eight highly-qualified candidates wishing to serve on our Board and look forward to the Board election at our 83rd annual meeting this March."

All members in good standing at the credit union are eligible to vote in the election. Ballots will be counted and certified by CCU's CPA firm, Wipfli, Ullrich, Bertelson LLP. After certification, those elected will be notified to attend the Board's Organizational Meeting at 6 p.m. on March 21.

The agenda for the March meeting includes the election of Board Officers for the coming year and determining who will serve on the Board's various standing committees.

Approximately 300 Members and guests are expected to attend the 83rd annual meeting at Keylime Cove Resort, 1700 Nations Drive in Gurnee. Tickets are available for $15 on a first-come, first-serve basis at all credit union offices. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., with dinner served at 6:30 p.m., followed by a business meeting to inform Members of CCU's 2012 financial status and the election of Board Members. Annual Reports recapping the credit union's 2012 performance will also be distributed at the meeting.
