Ever given much thought as to what makes your credit union tick? Have you been interested in how your financial institution is performing compared to others in the industry?
Well, your opportunity to learn answers to these questions and more is the Metro Credit Union Annual Membership meeting. Held each year, this meeting provides members with the opportunity to learn more about their institution, and to also take an active role in helping guide the future by electing the volunteer leaders who shape procedures and policies. This year, the Metro Credit Union Annual Membership meeting is scheduled for Friday, February 26th at the Embassy Suites Hotel in LaVista, Nebraska.
The meeting is open to any and all Metro members and their guests. Tickets are $15.00 and will be available at all Metro branch offices beginning January 5, 2016. Each year elections are held to fill three expiring positions on Metro’s Board of Directors. In 2016, the terms of Directors: Vicky Lorchick, Marilyn McWilliams and John White are scheduled to expire. Each of these current Directors have expressed the desire to serve an additional three-year term if elected. As a result, the Nominating Committee has placed these three names in nomination.
According to Credit Union Bylaws, in the event that no other qualified candidates are identified, and the number of open positions is equal to the number of candidates, no actual ballot election will be held. Bylaws do not allow for nominations from the floor.
Current Metro Credit Union members in good standing who have an interest in running for a position on the Board of Directors may submit a petition signed by 1.00% of the membership to the Nominating Committee by Friday, January 15, 2016. Metro’s Board of Directors are unpaid volunteers elected from within the membership. They meet monthly, and are required to make themselves available for training throughout the year.
