CUNA’s Board has determined that a board candidate should possess certain qualities and characteristics. The CUNA Board also desires to be diverse and inclusive. The Board considers diversity to encompasses all the characteristics, experiences and cultural influences that make each person unique.
The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent plays a significant part in the strength of the CUNA Board. Candidates should consider these characteristics, experiences and influences when self-assessing their qualifications for a Board position.
CUNA’s Board considers these characteristics important in qualified and diverse candidates:
Candidates will have the opportunity to address how they meet these characteristics as they complete their candidate profile form.
Directors elected will take office upon the adjournment of CUNA's Annual General Meeting in Washington, D.C., Feb. 24, 2020, during CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference.
