Nominations Open for National Credit Union Foundation Board

The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is currently seeking nominations to fill three open positions on its board of directors. Open seats include one system affiliate seat and two credit union executive seats, including the position currently held by former BECU President and CEO Gary Oakland.

Volunteers serve up to three three-year terms on the NCUF board as long as they are re-nominated by the NCUF Nominations Committee and re-elected by the NCUF board.

Two incumbents are serving in board seats open for nominations. Mark Twisdale, senior vice president of human resources at State Employees’ Credit Union in Raleigh, N.C., is completing his second three-year term on the NCUF Board in the credit union executive or director seat. Stan Hollen, president and CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, is completing his first three-year term on the NCUF Board in the system affiliate seat. Both have expressed interest in serving another term.

The second credit union executive or director seat is currently held by Oakland, who retired recently and is leaving the NCUF board. The new board member elected to fill his open seat would complete Oakland’s current term, which is scheduled to run through Dec. 31, 2013.

The National Credit Union Foundation board of directors is made up of dedicated credit union professionals and volunteers representing cross-sections of America’s credit union movement. According to the Foundation’s website, “their vision inspires us to explore new innovative programs that keep the Foundation on the leading edge of credit union development.”

The 13 voting seats on the NCUF board include representatives of national person credit unions, national organizations serving credit unions, corporate credit unions, state credit union foundations, state leagues and an at-large position.

To qualify for the credit union executive or director position, nominees must be executive officers or directors of a credit union. To qualify for the system affiliate position, nominees must be directors or executive officers of a nationwide organization whose main focus is to support credit unions or some element of the credit union movement. Credit unions must also comprise a significant portion of the given organization’s ownership or membership.

Qualified candidates interested in applying for the NCUF board seats can click “Volunteer for our Board” from the NCUF homepage to access the declaration of candidacy document.

Applications must be received by Oct. 31.

The NCUF board will elect its table officers at its organizational meeting in January 14-15, 2013, in Anaheim, Calif. The next meeting will take place in May in Tampa, Fla., with the fall meeting and planning session scheduled for September in Washington, D.C.
