✅ Do you honestly believe that the 32 page Board Candidate Package * [see link below], which "This Board" released today will "empower member participation and increase Board of Director election transparency and security"? [A quote from the new/new election procedures just adopted]**
👍* Why not contact Ms. Amy Funderburk, Board Governance Lead , for your opportunity to fill out a 32-page form! - Board Corporate Secretary <Board.Corporate.Secretary@
* * Important Update Regarding State Employees' Credit Union Board Election Policies and Procedures – April 13, 2023 [Timing was entirely coincidental!]
These changes will:
- Expand voting options for SECU members. SECU is partnering with an independent credit union election facilitator [the membership of SECU really needs to watch out for this one!] to ensure members have access to convenient and secure voting options. If there are more candidates than vacancies to be filled, members can cast ballots in person at the annual meeting or vote online during an absentee voting period.
- Increase member visibility into Board candidates’ experience. All Board candidates will be asked to provide a brief statement of background as part of their candidate package. This statement will be posted to the SECU website and provided to all voting members to inform their understanding of candidates’ qualifications to serve on the Board.
- Improve self-nomination petition requirements to enhance election integrity. As in prior years, a Nominating Committee will be appointed by the Chair of the Board to screen nominees and recommend candidates. Candidates not selected by the Nominating Committee will be sent a self-nomination packet if they choose to continue their candidacy, and membership status of self-nomination petition signatories will be verified by an independent auditor to ensure participation by members only.
...as Alice would say: "Curiouser and curiouser"!
