Just over a year after leaving Frontier Nate was elected to the board of directors where has served for 12 years. During this time Nate has served in the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and Chairman. Nate says, “As the only Frontier board member that I know of to have first been an employee I was able to see personally how decisions in the board room affected the staff and members of Frontier. I believe in the credit union movement, in people helping people and I believe that Frontier Credit Union has many more great things ahead of us which makes me want to continue to be a part of this amazing organization.”
