Call for Nominations for the NJCUL Board of Directors Going on Now; Deadline for Nominations is August 25

It is once again time to elect those who will represent credit unions from across the state as members of the New Jersey Credit Union League (NJCUL) Board of Directors. Pursuant to the NJCUL Board of Directors Nomination and Election Rules, we are issuing a call for nominations. All directors elected during this balloting will serve immediately following the annual meeting or election runoff closes. The Election Committee of the NJCUL Board will review and validate the nominations and ensure that the Nomination and Election Rules are followed by all candidates.

Information has been sent to each member credit union; anyone interested should review this information carefully and submit your nomination no later than 5:00 PM on August 25, 2017.

The Election Committee of the NJCUL Board will review and validate the nominations and ensure that the Nomination and Election Rules are followed by all candidates. 

The Board of Directors consists of nine members.  Three directors are chosen each year to fill a three-year term.  Thus this year there are three seats up for election.  There is one open seat in each of the three director categories (Tiers).  The Tier into which a credit union falls depends on its asset size. For 2017 the Tiers are as follows:

  • Tier A: Credit unions under $44,406,110 in assets
  • Tier B: Credit unions $44,406,110 and over in assets
  • Tier C: At-Large, credit unions of any asset size

In order to qualify to run for the position of Director a nominee must be a United States citizen and either a CEO, “senior management employee” (as defined in NCUA regulation 12 CFR 701.21), or a member of the board of directors of a credit union in Good Standing in the League.

Candidates must complete and submit the following documents:

  • Board of Directors Candidate Nomination form 
  • Board of Directors Candidate Profile form
  • The Conflict of Interest Questionnaire (pages 5 and 6) and the Acknowledgement (page 7) from the NJCUL Code of Ethics Policy and Conflict of Interest Directors Annual Certification.

Copies of these documents have been sent to each member credit union and are also available for download from the NJCUL web site at http://www.njcul.org.  If you are unable to log in as a member credit union or if you have difficulty finding the documents there, contact Marissa Anema (manema@njcul.org) at the NJCUL office for assistance.
