  • BlueOx Board Member Retires After More Than 42 Years of Service

    BATTLE CREEK, MI (March 9, 2020) – Long-time BlueOx Credit Union Board Member, Jeffrey Stanton, is retiring from the volunteer Board of Directors at the end of his term in April. A BlueOx member since 1968, Jeff has served in various volunteer positions since 1978, including: Board Chairman (1986 to present), Executive Committee, Building and Equipment Committee, ALM/Budget Committee, Personnel Committee and Nominating Committee. He has participated in many board-related training sessions though the Michigan Credit Union League, CUNA and the Educational Credit Union Council.

    To put it in perspective, when Jeff came onboard in 1978, BlueOx Credit Union (then known as School Employees Credit Union) had three branches, 5,986 members and more than $10 million in assets. Currently, BlueOx has seven branches, 24,060 members and $188 million in assets.

    “Jeff’s long-standing support, industry and institutional knowledge have been invaluable to BlueOx Credit Union. He’s always steered our attention toward member value and Credit Union financial stability, and support to our staff,” said BlueOx Credit Union CEO, Fran Godfrey. “His dedication to us has been vital to our success.”

    Please join us for a reception in Jeff’s honor, following our 84th Annual Meeting on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at 3 p.m. at FireKeepers Casino Hotel, 11177 East Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek.
