Interra Credit Union January 2019 Newsletter
It’s Election Time: Call for Nominations
One of the differences between banks and credit unions is democratic structure and control. Officials are elected by fellow members to oversee the governance of our financial cooperative. These individuals make a commitment to serve in a way that maximizes the shared interest of all members.
Service to fellow members on the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Committee provide unique opportunities to help chart the course of Interra, now and in the years to come. With that in mind, are you interested in serving your community and your fellow credit union members? Perhaps you have skill sets or are qualified in a particular area, such as finance or strategic planning. Or maybe you are passionate about Interra Credit Union and its future.
This Call for Nominations is a request for enthusiastic members interested in helping to build the credit union. Experience in financial services or as a board member is not required. In 2019, three (3) seats on the Board of Directors and one (1) on the Supervisory Committee, all 3-year terms, are up for election.
To be eligible, the individual must:
- Be an Interra member in good standing, meeting qualification criteria.
- Submit the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Application/Agreement.
- Meet the requirements of the Board of Directors or Supervisory Committee job description.
If you are interested in running for a position, please call Interra at 574.534.2506, ext. 7262, to obtain an application and related information. The deadline for delivery of all required information is at the end of the business day on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
In accordance with the Board of Directors Governance Manual and the Bylaws of Interra Credit Union, the Nominating Committee will review applications and establish a slate for the 2019 ballot, holding the right to approve any and all names that will be placed on the ballot. The election will be conducted online from March 11-25.
The Annual Meeting is scheduled for March 25, beginning at 5:30 pm, at the Interra main office in Goshen. Additional information about the election and the Annual Meeting will be provided in future issues of Intouch and online.

To: Holders of Traditional IRA accounts
Withholding Notice (form 2317)
Payments from your IRA are subject to federal income tax withholding unless you elect no withholding.
You may change your withholding election at any time prior to receipt of a payment. To change your withholding election, complete the appropriate form provided by your credit union.
Withholding from IRA payments, when combined with other withholding, MAY relieve you from payment of estimated income taxes. However, your withholding election does not affect the amount of income tax you pay.
You may incur penalties under the estimated tax rules if your withholding and estimated tax payments are insufficient.
