UKRFCU Board of Directors Nomination Package
November 21, 2016
Dear Credit Union Member:
Every year the members of Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union are called upon to elect individuals to serve on the Credit Union’s Board of Directors. These elections take place at the Credit Union’s Annual Meeting. Working as a Director affords a unique way to serve your credit union and its members. As a volunteer Director, you will be a vital part of major decision-making processes and will derive a great deal of satisfaction observing the results of your efforts.
Members interested in serving as a Director of the Credit Union are asked complete the attached Qualifications and Statement of Willingness to Serve and to provide a brief statement of why they want to be a credit union director. This statement should describe their current involvement with the credit union; what they hope to contribute if elected; and what they hope to accomplish as a Director. Use this statement to show how you would work with the other directors and management team to benefit the membership. This package also includes a description of the duties and responsibilities of credit union Board members. Please review these guidelines to determine that you will be able to meet the demands of this volunteer position.
The credit union’s by-laws provide two ways to become a candidate for the Board of Directors.
I. Candidates for the Board of Directors may be recruited by the Nominating Committee. If you would like to be considered for a Director position by the Nominating Committee please complete, sign and submit the Qualifications Statement and supporting materials to the Nominating Committee no later than December 19, 2016 to ensure that the Nominating Committee has adequate time to review your Qualification Statement and supporting materials.
II. Candidates can also be nominated by the membership. You can become a candidate by signing and submitting the Qualifications Statement and the enclosed supporting materials along with a petition signed by at least 95 current members of the Credit Union. Petitions, Qualification Statements and all supporting materials from members nominated by petition must be submitted at least forty (40) days prior to the date of the annual meeting. Since this year’s annual meeting is scheduled to take place on March 4, 2017, the materials must be received no later than 4:00 PM on January 23, 2017.
The Qualification Statement of candidates nominated by petition will be posted and will also be distributed at the annual meeting.
Please drop off your materials at any of our branch offices, or mail to:
