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.

Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee Candidates

Our annual election to the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee is May 2015. The deadline to submit a candidate application is February 13, 2015. 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 17, 2015.

Three seats will be up for election on the Board of Directors, and three 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 credit union’s books and records.

Associate Volunteer Candidates

David and Derek Carr Partner with EECU

Fresno State’s own David and Derek Carr are endorsing EECU. The Carr brothers are community leaders, all-round great guys and awesome athletes. Both were outstanding Fresno State quarterbacks, leading the Bulldogs to many memorable victories and setting numerous school and conference records. Derek is starting his NFL career after the Oakland Raiders selected him in the second round of this year’s draft. David was the first pick of the 2002 NFL draft by the Houston Texans. His professional career spanned 11 seasons.

EECU is proud to be partnering with the Carr brothers!
