The Board has nominated Laura Veenendaal and Peter Deys to fill two vacancies. Since the membership did not submit any additional nominations, there is no need for an election and the Board nominees will be declared elected by acclamation at our AGM in March 2021.
Laura is the part-owner of BlackStone Mechanical and the Managing Editor of Clarion Magazine. She has a Bachelor of Human Ecology Degree and is a homeschooling mother.
Laura and her husband have 4 children and attend St. Albert Canadian Reformed Church. Laura has served on various church committees, supported children’s education and recreational programs, and volunteered for the Crisis Pregnancy Centre in Winnipeg.
Laura appreciates how Christian Credit Union has encouraged her family to manage their money in a responsible and Godly way; from her childhood savings account, to advice and guidance with their mortgage as a young married couple, and more recently in the growth of their company.
Laura values her relationship with Christian Credit Union and believes our biblical approach to financial services is unique in the marketplace. She has completed a 3-year term on the Board and has agreed to serve for another 3-year term.
