The 2022 – 2023 Nominating Committee chairman is Darlene Burns, and her Committee Members are Tom Harding and George Bauer.
Three Seats up for Election and Filled by: Terri Tulowiecki, Incumbent; Jennifer Stowell, Incumbent; and Nick Fabrizio, Incumbent.
The election of officials by mail ballot requires that the Board and staff carefully plan and schedule the election procedures to maximize use of regularly scheduled mailings to members within the time frames permitted for each action in the election process.
It is important that the mail ballot process operate smoothly and that we schedule so as to take advantage of the maximum times allowed for each action. Accordingly, the proposed Schedule for 2023 Election of Officials by Mail Ballot was based on scheduling backward from the 2023 Annual Meeting date (March 13th) to conform to both the bylaw requirements and the mailings of quarterly statements.
The Supporting Actions for Mail Ballot Election lists the supporting actions to be taken by the Board/staff.
At its regular meeting on May 18, 2022, I will recommend that the Board move approval of:
If item 3. is approved and there are no nominations by petition or unannounced resignations from incumbent Directors and the Nominating Committee nominates only one nominee per vacancy, the Credit Union may eliminate the mailing of ballots and the associated expenses of the election. For this procedure to be effective, incumbents, who expect to resign prior to March 13, 2023, should indicate their intent prior to August 1, 2022 so the Nominating Committee may nominate a replacement.
