McLauchlin was promoted to Columbia Credit Union’s vice president of network services on Aug. 9, 2017. His responsibilities include managing the information technology department’s infrastructure, server administration and help desk activities.

Muro is a resident of Camas. She has a bachelor’s degree in human development from Washington State University. When she started working at Columbia Credit Union in 2013, she had almost 15 years of human resource experience.
