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.

No more than two of the Board may be credit union directors from Class A, B or C from any one state and no more than one voting CUNA Director shall be from any single credit union.  There are currently two CUNA directors from California; therefore, no candidates from California are eligible to be nominated and elected for the District 6, Class A position or the Class C position.  There are also currently two CUNA directors from Texas; therefore, no candidates from Texas are eligible to be nominated and elected for the District 5, Class B position or the Class C position.

Directors elected will take office upon the adjournment of CUNA's Annual General Meeting in Washington, D.C., March 11, during the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.
