NCUF Seeks Nominations for 2 Board Seats Open to Credit Unions

Opportunities for Credit Union Executives and Directors

Volunteer for our Board buttonThe National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is seeking nominations for two board seats designated for executive officers or directors of “natural person” credit Unions. NCUF is the credit union movement’s primary national charitable organization.

Applications must be received by November 23, 2007.

“Serving on the NCUF Board is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of consumers across America,” reflected NCUF Chairwoman Mary Cunningham, president and CEO of USA Federal Credit Union in San Diego, California. “We have found our place as thought leaders, innovators, and contributors to the ongoing cause of people helping people.”

After a decade as a voting member, Cunningham is not running for re-election. Her voting seat on the NCUF Board is one of the two seats open for nominations. Cunningham will continue to volunteer as a non-voting member from the Immediate Past Chair position.

To suggest a potential nominee for the NCUF Board, contact the chairman of NCUF’s Governance and Nominations Committee:

Chuck Purvis, Senior Vice President and Strategic Business Officer
Coastal Federal Credit Union
Raleigh, NC
(919) 420-8182

The committee will review all nominations and recommend a slate of candidates to the NCUF Board, which will vote in December.

Board members will then elect their officers at an organizational meeting in early 2008, the first of three face-to-face meetings planned for next year.
