Meet the Board of Directors

Governing Through Experience

One of the features that makes TCU Financial Group different from other financial institutions is our local leadership. The credit union is governed by an elected group of individuals known as the Board of Directors. These are members, just like you, who generously give of their time and energy to steer the present and help unfold the future. Every year, we hold an election and every adult member has the right to cast a vote for the Board of Directors. Members can also run for a seat on the Board if certain criteria is met.

To learn more about being a board member, please review our Board of Directors Terms of Reference document. Each year in January we post a call for nominations.

Contact the Board

Members may write to the Board. Letters and emails addressed to the Board, or any of its Members, are reviewed by the Board Liaison to determine if a response from the Board is appropriate. While the Board oversees Management, it does not participate in the day-to-day operations of TCU Financial Group and is not normally in the best position to respond to these types of matters.

The Board has instructed the Board Liaison to review all correspondence and in consultation with the Board Chair, forward items they feel are appropriate for consideration by the Board.

All inquiries will receive a response from either the Board Liaison, Management or the Board Chair, where appropriate. A log is maintained of all correspondence sent to Board Members. Board Members may review the log at any time and request copies of any correspondence received.

Nicole Cox

Saskatoon
Board Member since: 2019

I have been a member of TCU for as long as I have had a bank account. As a family we have worked with TCU from both a personal and small business standpoint.

I am currently employed at the Saskatchewan Health Authority as Director of Quality, Safety, and Logistics for Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Simply put my job is about ensuring patients get the best service from the lab that we can possibly provide. It requires strategic thinking, regulatory compliance, and working with a team of fabulously talented individuals. I truly believe that the work we do makes a positive impact to patient health care, which is important to me.

I loved school and earned a BSc in Microbiology, MSc in Anatomy and Cell Biology, and an MBA from the University of Saskatchewan. Reading, seminars, and extracurricular courses continue to feed my drive to learn new things.

I would love the opportunity to learn more about TCU and the needs of other members. I want to contribute to our community and make a positive impact on our financial health as well.
