With two additional names submitted this week, CUNA has received six nominations for its 2017 board elections.
Both nominations are for Class C (credit unions having more than 106,000 members). They are: Tony C. Budet, president/CEO of University FCU, Austin, Texas; and Maurice R. Smith, Local Government FCU, Raleigh, N.C.
Class C credit union elections will be conducted at-large nationwide, rather than by district.
Previous nominations include:
Effective in 2017, Class D (leagues) elections will also be conducted at-large nationwide, rather than by district. Nominees to be elected by leagues must be a league chief executive officer and be nominated in writing by that league, with the nomination seconded in writing by at least one other league.
The deadline for nominations and seconds is Dec. 9. In contested elections, voting will begin Dec. 14 and close Jan. 20. Nomination information can be found on the CUNA website.
Other positions open in the 2017 elections include:
Each credit union nominee must be an employee or a voting board member of the nominating credit union, with the nomination seconded in writing by at least two other credit unions from the same class and, for Class A and B, district.
No more than two of the voting CUNA directors shall be from members located in any one state and no more than one voting CUNA director shall be from any single credit union.
Directors elected will take office upon the adjournment of CUNA's Annual General Meeting in Washington, D.C., Feb. 27, during the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.
