Special CUNA Board election to be held for Mays seat
MADISON, Wis. And WASHINGTON (4/4/12)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will conduct a special CUNA Board election for a seat representing District 5, Class C, CUNA announced Tuesday.

The seat was vacated when Harriet May, former CUNA Board chairman and former CEO of GECU, El Paso, Texas, announced her retirement, which was effective on Saturday.  The term for that position will expire at the adjournment of CUNA's Annual General Meeting in 2014.

A notice was sent Tuesday to eligible credit unions in District 5, Class C, who can nominate a candidate for the special election. District 5 is comprised of leagues in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

Nominations are due April 27.  The election will be conducted by written ballot from April 30 to May 25. The term of office will begin immediately after the successful candidate is determined.

To be eligible, a candidate must be an employee or voting board member of the nominating credit union. The nomination must be in writing and be seconded in writing by two other credit unions of the same size group from the district.

Nomination packets were sent to eligible credit unions.  Nomination forms can be faxed to 608-231-4874, e-mailed to thanson@cuna.coop,or mailed to 5710 Mineral Point Road, Madison, WI 53705).
