Haven't heard anything further from the Administrator of Credit Unions; so will check back next week to see if any progress has been made on how to mitigate the invalid New Election Procedures. No easy fix, especially with an obstinate, error prone, but unapologetic Board. The whole situation goes from ripe to rotten pretty quickly if not addressed.
😎 The most humorous story I've heard about the New Election Procedures was about a conversation with a current member of "this Board'. When asked by an SECU member why the New Election Procedures were approved so abruptly, the Board member said "...we hired a consultant who told us we were exposed to the possibility of being taken over by a small group of members!" The member without thinking blurted out ".. too late on that, it looks like it has already happened!" The Board member didn't seem to get it... [Not surprised, are you?]
✅ Many members have expressed interest in running for a seat on the SECU Board. Some have filed an application with the Nominating Committee, some haven't. Both groups want to begin gathering member signatures. Here are the responses from "this Board":
Q1) "Ms. Funderburk,
Would you please send me, as quickly as possible, a copy of the Official Nominating Petition that is to be used for the upcoming SECU board elections? Thank you very much."
A2): "Thank you for your inquiry. As set out in the election procedures:If a member is notified by the Nominating Committee that they were not selected as a candidate, and the member wishes to self-nominate, the member may then email the Assistant Corporate Secretary at board.corporate.secretary@
The self-nominating packets will be available after the filing of nominations with the Corporate Secretary. Thank you, Amy Funderburk"
