2019 NAFCU Board elections begin

NAFCUNAFCU's 2019 board election cycle is now open with four director positions available – one at-large position and one position each for the Eastern, Southern and Western Regions. Two incumbents are seeking re-election.

The NCUA's restructuring of its regional offices went into effect Jan. 1, and NAFCU's regional board positions now reflect those changes.

An email to NAFCU members today will include information on how to access the candidate application.

At-Large Director Jan Roche (State Department Federal Credit Union, Alexandria, Va.) and Eastern Region Director Brian Schools (Chartway Federal Credit Union, Virginia Beach, Va.) are running again for three-year terms.

The open board positions for the Southern and Western Regions are also for three-year terms.

There are two ways to be nominated to run for any of the four open NAFCU Board seats: complete and submit a candidate application to the Nominating Committee; or, by petition, obtaining at least five valid nominating ballots from NAFCU members.

Candidate applications are due to the committee March 11. Nominating ballots, which will go out April 3, must be returned by April 17. Official ballots for voting in both the at-large and regional elections will be sent April 24.
