MADISON, Wis. (10/4/11)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is seeking nominations for three board seats: an open credit union executive or director seat, a system affiliate seat and its at-large seat. Applications are due Oct. 28. Volunteers serve up to three three-year terms on the NCUF board so long as they are re-nominated by the NCUF Governance and Nominations Committee and re-elected by the NCUF board. Qualifications for the positions include:
* Credit union executive or director seat: Candidate must be an executive officer or director of a credit union. * System affiliate seat: Candidate must be and remain a director or executive officer of an organization that is national in scope, has as its primary purpose the support of credit unions or some element of the credit union movement; has a significant portion of ownership or membership from the credit union system; and has demonstrated a commitment to the purposes of this corporation. NCUF cited CUNA Mutual Group as an example. * At-large seat: Candidate must be and remain a representative of an organization outside the credit union system, such as a cooperative, that has demonstrated a commitment to the purposes of the corporation. The individual elected to this seat is appointed for a one to three-year term determined by the NCUF board and shall not be eligible to serve on the foundation's Executive Committee.
Two incumbents in the system affiliate and at-large seats are up for election: Christopher Roe, senior vice president, corporate and legislative affairs, CUNA Mutual Group, Madison, Wis., who is completing his first term; and John Gregoire, president, The ProCon Group, Madison, who is completing his second term. The third position will be vacated by Allan Kemp McMorris, president/CEO of Oakland County CU, Waterford, Mich., who is fulfilling his last term on the board. To apply, use the link. The NCUF board will vote on the committee's recommendations in December. In January, NCUF's board will elect table officers at its organizational meeting, the first of three face-to-face meetings planned for 2012. The meetings are:
* Organizational meeting, Jan. 24, Phoenix; * Spring/Summer meeting, May 17; and * Fall board meeting, September 2012 in Washington, D.C.
The board has 13 voting seats, which include representatives from credit unions, national organizations serving credit unions, corporates, state credit union foundations, state leagues and the at-large position.
