Chuck Johnson, Chair, Supervisory Committee
Volunteerism: the use of volunteers, especially in community service.
First U.S. celebrates Chuck Johnson for his service to the members of First U.S., having served 37 years on the Supervisory Committee. The Committee is made up of volunteer officials, and Chuck presently serves as the long-time Chair of the Committee.
It was about 37 years ago when Chuck Johnson read the newsletter article. First U.S. was looking for volunteers to serve on the Credit Union’s Supervisory Committee. "I saw an opportunity to learn more about how credit unions worked, and a way to deepen my understanding of financial services," said Chuck.
The decision was easy. At that time, First U.S. served federal employees in Sacramento, and he knew many fellow Bureau of Reclamation employees were already serving on the First U.S. Board and Supervisory Committee. "It was a chance to serve the Credit Union membership with a group of co-workers," he continued.
"The Committee's role was to oversee the certified audit, which was not required at the time, but something that the volunteer Board and Supervisory Committee wanted. And after all these years, our best efforts to avoid problems in the first place and remaining visible to management and staff, have led to decades of financial soundness and growth without any issues of consequence."
"Chuck has been an active and vocal advocate for our membership in his role with the Supervisory Committee, and we're so grateful for his many years of service," said Carol Hauck, the Credit Union’s CEO. "It's through the experience and guidance of our Board and Supervisory Committee that we’ve flourished over our 83-year history," she continued.
