Maurice GreshamMaurice Gresham
My wife Lucille and I have been members of DCCU since 1965. During my 36 year career at DuPont, I held numerous supervisory and technical positions, including a three-year assignment in Maydown, Northern Ireland. I have been privileged to serve as a Director at the Credit Union since 2004, currently serving as Vice Chair. In addition to serving as the Board Treasurer, I have chaired the Asset Liability Management Committee and served on the Building Task Force and Personnel Committees.

Our Credit Union must continue to change to be relevant in the future. Its strong financial position supports growth and the challenge is to grow responsibly. We must use a conservative growth approach in order to control expenses and maintain our strong financial position. As a member of the Board, I will work hard to maintain the services and standards that the members expect and deserve.

Dr. Drew Ellen GogianDr. Drew Ellen Gogian
As a native of Augusta County, I am committed to serving our community. I am a graduate of Robert E. Lee High School and went on to pursue my nursing education through Blue Ridge Community College, the University of Virginia, Old Dominion University, and Walden University. I have worked in our region as a registered nurse and nurse educator my entire career. Most recently, I was appointed Associate Professor and Director of the RN to BSN program at Mary Baldwin University in June, 2014.

As a new Director on the DuPont Community Credit union Board, I will work hard to advocate for the membership as the Credit Union continues to grow. I sincerely believe in the mission of DCCU and am dedicated to doing my part in
affecting real, lasting, and positive change in the lives of our members.

Nominations by Petition

There are two positions open. If a member desires to serve on the Board of Directors, but has not been nominated by the Governance Committee, he/she may be nominated by petition. Nominations by petition must be signed by at least 500 members. The petition forms and procedures are available by email to and must be submitted by Monday, October 31, 2016.

It is important to note that an election will not be conducted when the number of nominees equals the number of positions to be filled. However, if a member successfully completes the petition process and is added to the slate, the election period will start in January 2017.
