National Credit Union Foundation Seeks Nominations for 2 Board Seats

The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is seeking nominations for two board seats:
  • Credit Union Executive or Director – Each candidate must be and remain an executive officer or director of a credit union serving “natural persons.” The nominee elected to this seat will be asked to serve a term of three years.
  • At-Large – Each candidate must be and remain a representative of an organization outside of the credit union system, such as a cooperative, that has demonstrated a commitment to the purposes of NCUF. The nominee elected to this seat will be asked to serve a term of one, two, or three years. This term will be determined by the board at the time of the nominee’s election.
