Previous Committee Experience
- Member, Audit and Risk Committee
After spending the first 12 years of his professional career as a software developer and manager in Information Technology, Jamison transitioned to agriculture. He has been managing the family grain farm near Starbuck for the past 11 years.
Jamison is excited to support the Credit Union and its members, with an emphasis on two areas close to his heart: cooperative principles and community support. In particular, Jamison believes supporting smaller businesses throughout Manitoba makes towns more vibrant and offsets the urbanization effects that push prosperity into the cities.
He is also in favor of financing housing construction across Manitoba in a way that addresses severe shortages and a lack of density in communities. He recognizes that the Credit Union has the scale to make a difference by taking an active role in stimulating growth opportunities. This active role would benefit members in terms of returns on investments and financial products, in addition to concrete improvements in affordability and quality of life.
EducationJamison holds a Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) degree.
This spring, he expects to complete the Credit Union Director Achievement (CUDA) program designed and administered by the Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA).
