Meet the Candidates
Amey Jutten has enjoyed serving on PCFCU’s Supervisory Committee since its start 19 years ago and was appointed to the Board of Directors in 2014. She worked several years in banking in Colorado before moving to Nebraska and brought that experience and knowledge with her to better serve the credit union.
She is involved in many church ministries teaching children’s church and Sunday school and serving on the Worship Music Team. Amey is also involved with MOPS and volunteers at school wherever she is needed along with attending her children’s many activities.
Her greatest love is serving her family. Her and husband John are the parents to four children and grandparents to one. She is a work at home mom helping with the cattle and the bookkeeping.
Amey says “I have learned a great deal about the ever changing credit union world and I have enjoyed every bit of it. I would love to continue to serve this amazing community and to help our credit union grow.”
Bud Damon says “A little bit about me. I was a Coloradoian until I escaped to Palisade a little over three years ago.
To start with, I am a leather crafter. I started tooling leather in 4-H when I was about nine years old and have continued to enjoy creating things out of leather. I worked for Tandy Leather in high school and college, and then became a deputy sheriff for Jefferson Co. Colorado. Then on to Aurora Police Dept. in Colorado where I served on the Board for the Denver and Aurora Police Federal Credit Union.
I then taught woodshop to high school and jr. high students for several years and then taught Criminal Justice to high school and college students. Now retired in Paradise and bought a house. I kidnapped Elle at the beginning of Covid and brought her up here. She hasn’t left! I bought another house and Elle bought a dog (Sam). Now neither of them have left. J I love being in Palisade and look forward to serving you as a new member of the Credit Union. Thank you for the opportunity.”

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE 18th Annual Report
The Supervisory Committee is responsible for ensuring that credit union policies, procedures and internal controls are adequately designed to protect members’ assets against fraud and conflict of interest. This is a federal requirement, and we report our compliance to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
We are also responsible for handling all member complaints, conducting random audits as needed, and keeping our board of directors informed of our activities.
Periodically, you may receive notices with your statement asking you to verify information on your account. If there are ever any discrepancies noted, or you have concerns, please contact the Supervisory Committee so we can research the discrepancy and follow up.
In addition to the audit we perform, your credit union also receives an examination by the NCUA, the insurer and regulator. This examination also enhances the safety and soundness of the credit union.
The Supervisory Committee will continue to monitor and assist the Credit Union throughout the year to ensure that the PCFCU remains strong and efficient.
