NAFCU Board Elections

Karen Rosales (President/CEO, Arlington Community FCU, VA), Keith Sultemeier (President/CEO, Kinecta FCU, CA), Stephanie Sherrodd (President/CEO, Sandia Laboratory FCU, NM) and Lonnie Nicholson (President/CEO, EECU, TX), were the only candidates to submit an application or receive five write-in nominations for their races, therefore they have won their seats outright and no elections are needed.

Official ballots for the remaining seats will be emailed to the membership on May 11.
