Clackamas adds four new board officers
Clackamas Federal Credit Union (Clackamas), has added four new board officers to its board of directors: Keith Galitz, chairman; Gordon Huiras, vice-chairman; David Wimmer, secretary; and Geoff Horton, treasurer. Clackamas is a not-for-profit, financial cooperative open to membership for people who live, work, worship or attend school in Clackamas County.
A major distinction of credit unions is that the directors serving on the board are volunteers, said Andrew Vahrenkamp, chief financial officer of Clackamas. Not only are we thankful for the continual commitment and service that our directors provide, but their leadership and expertise is beyond compare.
