Donna Hauprich

My career has been in Information Technology (DoD contracts) as a test analyst evolving to Quality Assurance management.  Post DoD contracts work, I have been employed as a Licensed Massage Therapist to help people live a balanced life. 

Having served on Signal’s Board for 30 years I’ve held executive positions as Board Secretary and Board Vice-Chairman.  I have served on all supporting committees to the board as well as chaired the Volunteer Education, Asset & Liability, Nominating, Member Services and Information Technology/Security committees.  Prior to nomination to the Board I served on and chaired the Supervisory Committee.

I am seeking re-election to the Board as a strong advocate of Signal Financial and in general credit unions. As a director my aim is to work to effectively supervise and administer the rules, regulations, and policies of Signal Financial for the good of the membership. I am proud to serve our membership and to be a part of a team that has inspired growth through hard work, planning, and dedication.

Debbie Cullen

As a retiree from Verizon, I held managerial positions in the areas of finance, regulatory and legal. I have served on Signal’s Board since 1988 various board executive positions as Chairman, Treasurer and currently as Secretary. Having this vast knowledge and expertise from my career with Verizon, my long tenure with Signal and holding numerous positions on the Board, supports my qualifications for re-nomination.

I am seeking re-election to the Board so that I may continue to serve members as a director with the background required to provide oversight on Signal’s financial stability; as well as working to ensure that members have an excellent experience and relationship with Signal. I will continue to support improvement and advancement of our services that we provide, as well as, listen to members in ways to improve their experience.
