Ken Karn
Board of Directors
I have been a credit union member for over thirty years and in that time I have seen many exciting, positive changes take place within the organization. Through orderly planned growth, the right blend of people and technology, while continuing to be focused on the member we have become one of the premier financial institutions in the valley. I believe that my fellow board members and I have and will continue to keep your financial institution fiscally sound and focused on serving the financial needs of you the member. I appreciate the opportunity I've had to serve you as a board member for the past 18 years and look forward to serving you in the future.

I am employed at E&J Gallo Winery where I have worked in various leadership positions for thirty-eight years; my current assignment is that of a Senior Safety Specialist on the Corporate Safety & Health Services Team.

Dr. Gary Hall
Board of Directors

I appreciate the opportunity to serve as a director for Valley First Credit Union for another three-year term. I currently chair the Finance and Lending Committee and Treasurer of the Board of Directors. I have enjoyed my term working harmoniously with the other directors and staff to serve our credit union. By working together, we can keep Valley First Credit Union the number one service oriented financial institution in the valley.

I have been a member of the credit union for over 60 years. I have served eleven years on the Supervisory Committee and nine years as a volunteer director on the board. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and have maintained a private practice since 1976, and I am active in my professional associations with positions of leadership as well.

Rex Cline
Supervisory Committee

I have served on the Valley First Credit Union's Supervisory Committee for the past twelve years. I have been an active member of the credit union from the early 1980's. I've served as a volunteer on the lending services, marketing and human resource committees for the past eleven years.

I remain passionate in my quest to assist the credit union in maintaining a sound fiscal base, along with providing useful, effective programs and superior service to our members.

I would consider it an honor to continue serving the members of Valley First Credit Union on the Supervisory Committee.
