As a credit union, we are a financial cooperative that is owned by its members, not stockholders. Because of this distinction, each member, regardless of the size of their account, has one vote in electing a volunteer Board of Directors. This assures that Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union remains democratically controlled so your best financial interest is not lost.
There are two (2) positions open for the 2015 MVFCU Board of Directors election. To cast your ballot, visit www.mvfcu.coop to log into MVFCUonline between April 1, 2015, and April 30, 2015, and click the eVote button above your account holder name! The whole process takes just a few minutes and saves the membership thousands of dollars in printing and mailing expenses!
If you prefer to obtain a paper ballot, visit any MVFCU office or request a paper ballot be mailed to you by calling (907) 745-4891 or (907) 694- 4891. Requests for mail ballots must be made by the close of business on April 20, 2015. All ballots must be received by the end of the day on April 30, 2015.
Election results will be announced at the 2015 Annual Membership Meeting on May 12, 2015. There will be no nominations from the floor at the membership meeting.

You don't have to get away to the great outdoors. The best outside spaces could be in your own back—or front—yard. If you do it right, your investment in landscaping and exterior hardscaping even can help you sell your house as well as yield a decent return on investment when the time comes.
Once upon a time it was enough to plop a picnic table in the grass. A flagstone patio and path were a nice touch. Later a neat poured concrete slab and walkway to the front door cut down on maintenance and created an easy place to keep the grill.
Those simple times are long gone.
Today's outdoor spaces are more varied, intricate, and personalized than their early predecessors. Now it's not unusual to see combinations of decks, patios, water features, and fire elements such as fire pits and fireplaces, says Rick Meinzer of Platinum Landscapes in Provo, Utah. "Fire adds warmth and extends the usefulness of the outdoor space," he says. "Some of the best hours to enjoy the environment are not in the heat of the day."

Several years back, credit unions around the world rallied to the call: Unite for Good: A Better Way. This begs the question, how can credit unions be a force for good? What values or principles make credit unions worthy of being considered a better way? Following are some ideas.
These business principles are not new, also not exclusive to credit unions. I came upon them in a list as I was reading the other morning. Actually, there was one more suggestion on the list that is foundational to the other five. It is something each of us must discover on our own. My hope for our credit union is to always strive for good, together seeking a better way.
