Election Process

Each year credit union members elect volunteers from among the membership to serve on the Board of Directors. This year five positions are open for terms of three years. If there are no more nominees than positions available, ballots will not be sent out, and there will be no nominations from the floor. The nominees will be declared elected by consent at the Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, May 13, 2023.
