I am seeking re-election to the Board of Directors because I would like to continue the success our credit union has achieved. As a Board member for sixteen years, including the past three as Treasurer, I want to contribute my knowledge and experience to help Greater Nevada remain competitive in the Nevada communities we serve by offering competitive low loan rates and fair dividend returns. I believe with my experience I can help Greater Nevada continue its commitment to maintaining financial soundness and outstanding service to its members.

ROB JOINER (incumbent)

Member: 29 Years

It has been a pleasure to serve the owner-members of GNCU over the past several years. As with most financial institutions, we have experienced challenges to maintaining our fiscal health and high standards of service to members. We have met these challenges with dedicated management, staff and a resolute Board of Directors. The result has been safe and sound maintenance of our members' assets without government assistance. Our fiscal policies and strategic planning have provided for increased products and services and an overall stronger institution. I respectfully request your vote to continue representing the owner-members of GNCU.

On March 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., Greater Nevada will hold its Annual Meeting at the Eagle Station branch in Carson City. All members are welcome to attend and meet the Board of Directors, as well as members of the credit union's management team and staff. We hope you'll join us at the 65th Annual Meeting!
