Call for Volunteers

EECU is now accepting applications for our annual election to the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee, and our Associate Volunteer program. Applicants for all positions must be members.

Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Candidates

Our annual election to the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee is May 2018. The deadline to submit a candidate application is February 15, 2018. The Nomination/Election Committee will review applications and interview potential candidates prior to placing names into nomination. Members who are not nominated may still seek election by submitting a petition containing the verified signatures of 100 credit union members. The petitions must be submitted by March 20, 2018.

Three seats will be up for election on the Board of Directors, and two seats will be available on the Supervisory Committee. Members of the Board of Directors are responsible for directing and controlling the affairs of the credit union, exercising sound governance and leadership, and working closely with management to develop sound policies. The Supervisory Committee is responsible for ensuring rules/regulations are followed and internal controls are in place to protect the credit union. The Supervisory Committee is also responsible for selecting the credit union’s external audit firm and overseeing the audit of the credit union’s books and records.

Associate Volunteer Candidates

The Board of Directors may appoint up to three candidates to become Associate Volunteers. Associate Volunteers provide the credit union with an ongoing resource to provide qualified future candidates for Board and Supervisory Committee elections. Associate Volunteers will complete educational training, attend meetings, participate in planning sessions, and fulfill other requirements of the position.

Appointment to the Associate Volunteer program will be voted on by the Board of Directors. Terms begin in April 2018.
