Two seats available on National Credit Union Foundation board

A credit union executive officer or director is being asked by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) to run for one of two open board seats. The commitment to the NCUF is a three-year term on the NCUF board as long as the board member is re-nominated by the NCUF Governance & Nominations Committee and re-elected by the NCUF board. There are currently two incumbents in the seats up for election and both have expressed interest in serving another term.


To apply for either of the two seats, click “ Volunteer for our Board” for the declaration of candidacy document. Applications are due by October 29, 2010. The NCUF’s Governance & Nominations Committee will review all candidates and recommend nominees to the NCUF Board, who will then vote on the nominees in December.


“It’s gratifying to serve on the NCUF board and help empower consumers to achieve financial independence through credit unions,” said NCUF board Chairman Allan Kemp McMorris, president & CEO of Oakland County Credit Union. “The Foundation’s strategic programs and grants help credit unions provide widespread financial education, create greater access to affordable financial services, and empower more consumers to save, build assets, and own homes.”

There are three face-to-face meetings planned for 2011:

  • Organizational Meeting: in January (location TBD)
  • Spring/Summer Meeting: May or June in Madison, Wis.
  • Fall Board Meeting: September in Alexandria, Va.

The 13 voting seats on the NCUF board include representatives of natural person credit unions, national organizations serving credit unions, corporate credit unions, state credit union foundations, state leagues and an at-large position.
