In accordance with Article V of the Credit Union’s bylaws, as amended, and approved by the National Credit Union Administration, the following procedure will be followed for the Nomination and Election of the Board of Directors.

NOMINATIONS will be made by the Nominating Committee. Additional nominations may be made by petition, the requirements for which are as follows:

  1. The forms for the petition, certification and statements shall be provided by the Credit Union.
  2. Petition shall be signed by not less than 508 members of this Credit Union who are eligible to vote (members 16 years of age or older).
  3. The nominee shall be not less than 16 years of age as of February 26, 2020.
  4. Only one nominee shall be contained on each petition.
  5. The nominating petition, together with a statement of qualifications, biographical data and certification of intent to serve if elected to office, shall be filed with the Nominating Committee
    on or before January 17, 2020.

The election will be by ballot boxes. Balloting as necessary will be conducted from February 14, 2020 through February 21, 2020 at the Credit Union offices.

There will be no balloting and no nominations from the floor at the Business Meeting if there is only one nominee per office. Balloting where necessary will have been completed prior to the Business Meeting. Nominations from the floor will be called and elections held at the Annual Meeting only in the event that sufficient nominations have not been made by the Nominating Committee or by the petition for each of the offices to be filled.
