This year’s annual meeting will be held on June 15, 2022 at 5:00 at the Main Office of Pioneer Federal Credit Union in Mountain Home, Idaho. At the meeting we will report the state of the credit union and plans for the future.  We will also announce the results of the election for the Board of Directors.

All elections shall be determined by plurality vote and shall be by ballot boxes or mail ballot except where there is only one nominee for each position to be filled. The special ballot boxes will be located in each of our branch offices beginning on June 5, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. and closing on June 9, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. 

Absentee ballots may be obtained by submitting a written request to:

This year we will be voting for three Board of Director positions.  There will be no nominations from the floor at the annual meeting.  The Nominating Committee will accept nominations by petition.  Petitions for nominees must be received by 5:00 p.m. on May 6, 2022 and contain signatures from one percent (1%) or 500 members (max) of the membership.  As of October 31, 2021 the membership count was 55,806.
