Subject: Vote now for the SECU Board



Early absentee voting for members of the State Employees Credit Union Board of Directors has been in progress for three weeks and closes at midnight on October 3, except for members attending the SECU Annual Meeting. 

SEANC members belonging to the credit union, their families, and friends (more than 2.6 million citizens of North Carolina are members) are urged to vote for the Member-Nominated Candidates: Michael Clements, Barbara Perkins, and SEANC Past President Chuck Stone.



  1. The SEANC Board of Governors adopted a resolution in February asking SECU and the current Board of Directors to rescind risk-based lending. Risk-based lending increases interest rates charged to many state employees, retirees, and other SECU members who have average or lower credit scores and will cost them thousands of dollars extra for auto, personal, and, ultimately, mortgage loans. It is a major change in treating all members the same for loans and interest.
  2. Legislation and other policy changes could open SECU membership to the general public and/or mergers with other financial institutions.
  3. Loss of focus on SECU members, such as discontinuation of Loan Review Committees and tax preparation.



Michael Clements lives in Winston-Salem and served as a public health leader in several counties across North Carolina. He has served on numerous boards, key leader in several community nonprofits, and was elected by his peers as president of N.C. Healthcare Association. He is a graduate of Shaw University and received a master's degree from UNC-Chapel Hill.

Barbara Perkins lives in Raleigh and worked as a teacher, in several state agencies, and in private business. She is an expert in accounting, operational and technology systems. She graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and is an adjunct professor at NC State.

Chuck Stone lives in Goldsboro and had a distinguished career in state government with mental health administration at O'berry and Cherry hospitals. He also served as the operations director for the State Employees Association of North Carolina (SEANC) and sits on its board. He has broad experience at all levels of state government, expert on health and employee benefits.
