WASHINGTON and MADISON, Wis. (1/14/09)--Nominations are now being accepted for the 2009-2010 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) committees, which will be appointed by the CUNA Executive Committee after its upcoming Annual General Meeting. Nominations are due by Feb. 27. They can be submitted through the credit union’s CUNA Board representative or league president or online by using the link. Potential committee members should be knowledgeable, dedicated and familiar with the important issues the committee will address. Although there are exceptions, the Executive Committee’s general guideline on committee term limits is to replace members who have served on the same committee for more than three or four years. At its September 2006 meeting, the CUNA Board of Directors approved a recommendation from the Renewal Review Committee that would encourage the increased engagement of volunteers in CUNA’s governance, especially in the existing structure through committee assignments. The completed nomination information should be sent to Teresa Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Once all recommendations are recorded, they will be forwarded to the Executive Committee.
