The Board of Directors, by resolution, has authorized that all elections shall be determined by plurality vote except when there is only one nominee for each position to be filled. In the event that there is more than one nomination for a position on March 1, 2020, all eligible members* will be mailed a ballot with instructions for voting. Voting will also take place prior to the Annual Membership Meeting. Only the eligible member may cast the ballot; and the ballot must not be tampered with, or it will become an invalid ballot.
Nominations shall not be made from the floor at the Annual Meeting unless insufficient nominations have been made by the Nominating Committee or by petition to provide for one nominee for each position to be filled or circumstances prevent the candidacy of the one nominee for a position to be filled. Only those positions without a nominee shall be subject to nominations from the floor.
In accordance with the Credit Union Bylaws, nominations for vacancies may also be made by petition signed by a least one percent of the membership, which now numbers 28,814 or 288 signatures. Such nominations shall also be accompanied by statement of qualifications and biographical data in the same format as candidate submitting a resume as indicated above. Such nominations shall be filed with the Secretary of the Credit Union by February 15, 2020. The Annual Membership Meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held on April 14, 2020.
* An eligible member is primary (membership share) account holder at least 18 years of age, meeting all qualifications for membership, including a $5 per value (minimum balance) on deposit in this account. Joint share account holders are not considered eligible members for voting.
