CUNA receives first 2017 board nomination

CUNA has received the first nomination for open positions on CUNA’s board of directors.

Charles Elliott, president/CEO of the Mississippi Credit Union Association, Jackson, Miss., has been nominated for a Class D seat.

Two Class D positions are up for election. Effective in 2017, Class D (Leagues) elections will 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.

Two Class C positions are also up for election in 2017 and, similar to the League seats, Class C credit unions (credit unions having more than 106,000 natural-person members) will also be conducted at-large nationwide, rather than by district.
