Welcome Associate Board Members, Darryl and Andy!

two board members

Darryl and Andy have joined the Great Basin Federal Credit Union Volunteer Board of Directors as Associate Board Members.

Darryl Van DornDarryl Van Dorn has extensive history with Credit Union products and services, with 29 years as a member of Schools First Federal Credit Union (formerly Orange County Teachers FCU). Darryl graduated from California Polytechnic State University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics. He has lived in Reno for 14 years and currently works for Sierra Nevada Corporation as a Program Manager for Corporate Initiatives. He has extensive history working in a compliance role for U.S. Government business activity supporting the Defense Contract Administration Agency (DCMA), Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR).

He is active in his community, currently acting as Committee Chairman for a local Boy Scouts of America troop, leading the high adventure outdoor activities for the troop, and supporting local youth sports organizations. Other community service experience includes his time as a Peace Corps Volunteer for the U.S. Department of State (fun fact: he learned French and other local languages!).

He is excited for an opportunity to serve a community based organization, and benefit from the personal growth opportunity afforded by this experience. 


Andy EcheitaAndy Echeita is a first generation Basque, native Nevadan, born in Reno and a lifelong resident of Sparks. He attended Sparks schools, graduated from Sparks High School, and attended University of Nevada Reno. He is married (Laurie) for 34 years and has two children; Jess who is 21 and attending UNR and Truckee Meadows Community College; Michonne who is 18, just graduated from Bishop Manogue Catholic High School and preparing for college at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. He has worked for the City of Sparks for over 33 years. He is a Capital Projects Coordinator and his job involves construction coordination for capital projects and development projects. He has managed many projects in his career including the redevelopment of downtown, the water fountain, and some phases of the marina park. In his off time he enjoys the outdoors, whether it’s skiing, fishing, hunting, camping or riding desert roads on his Razor UTV.

In his tenure with the City of Sparks, he was fortunate to be involved with the Sparks City Employees FCU. He volunteered for over 20 years. He started on the Credit Committee, chaired the Credit Committee, served on the Board of Directors, and was the Chairman of the Board. He worked with Great Basin FCU in the merger with Sparks City Employees FCU as Chairman of the Board, which was very educational (yet stressful at times). Working with Great Basin FCU staff made the transition very smooth. Today the members from Sparks FCU have more exciting benefits that would not be possible with Sparks Employees FCU. He took some years off after this merger and believes now is a time he would like to get involved once again.
