Rick AntonioRick Antonio
Palmer/Fishhook Resident
Employed at the Mat-Su Borough as a Civil Construction Project Manager.

Reasons for wanting to serve MVFCU:
I appreciate and support the role that MVFCU plays in the community as a member owned cooperative financial institution. As this hometown credit union has supported my family and me, we would like to give back by volunteering and contributing where needed. Concern for community is one of the basic principles of a co-op and I believe that our success is achieved by investing in our future generations. If chosen to serve, I would advocate for providing additional education opportunities to promote financial literacy and help maximize the opportunities that the services provide to members.

Palmer Resident
Employed at Fosselman & Associates CPA Firm

Reasons for wanting to serve MVFCU:
I opened my first bank account at 13 in MVFCU’s Willow branch and have remained a member ever since. I appreciate MVFCU’s efforts to be an active and positive presence in all the communities it serves. Over the last 4 years of being on the Supervisory Committee I have seen firsthand how member-centered MVFCU is in all that it does. I would like to serve on the Board of Directors to take a more active role in continuing MVFCU’s role in the community especially in educating young people about finances. I am interested in seeing the credit union leverage technology to enhance the member experience for convenience while keeping the personal touch of a small tight-knit community.

Co-owner of Foster and Company, LLC CPA firm

Reasons for wanting to serve MVFCU:
I have been a member of MVFCU for many years. As a Board Member for the past three years, I am impressed by the professionalism of the staff from the front line to the back office. It is exciting to watch the organization grow into new technologies. I would look forward to helping direct the credit union into our next successful growth cycle, especially in the areas of member communication and mobile technology.


Joseph T. Hawkins (Incumbent)Joseph T. Hawkins
Wasilla Resident
Owner of Bionic Chiropractic

Reasons for wanting to serve MVFCU:
“For service, not for profit.” This is what we stand for. I have seen considerable success in reaching out to the younger members of our community over the past years. MVFCU has, in unity and cooperation with other credit unions and the Mat-Su Health Foundation and the schools and many, many volunteers, supported the teaching of financial principles through “Financial Reality Fairs” and community outreach. These activities benefit our community on multiple levels. Volunteers have the opportunity to share the financial knowledge with the younger generation, and they benefit by learning from the vast diversity and energy of the youth, and draw our community closer together. I would like to see this program and others will continue to grow and make positive influences on our youth and community. I will continue to do all I can to make financial education and options available for those members who experience unexpected medical bills with the understanding that a solid financial institution leads to community stability and growth.
