John Shoffner – 2024 Board Candidacy Statement

It has been an honor and a privilege to have been elected to serve the members and stakeholders through board service. I was first elected in 2009 and continue to be inspired and energized by GMFCU management, fellow board members and momentum in making the credit union the best it can be in service to the needs of all members. I take my fiduciary responsibilities that board service entails seriously and ask for your support and vote to continue my service.

Previous committee assignments have included supervisory, nominating and ALM. I bring a diverse business background with experience in financial and credit analysis, strategic planning, accounting, forecasting, budgeting, business development, client services and a focus on financial technology. My career has included public sector service and work in the private sector in finance, commercial banking and business consulting.

As a board member, I want to see us continue to grow in a sustainable manner while focusing on strategy, risk appetite, good governance and maintaining our financially sound position. I also feel that as the needs of our members evolve, the credit union needs to be nimble and willing to embrace change to be responsive and relevant while respecting the principles and values that have made us strong.
