2021 Board of Directors’ Election

In our October 2020 member newsletter, nominations were solicited to fill three directors’ terms of office, commencing in May 2021. The deadline for filing nomination papers was November 16, 2020.

We are pleased to announce that we received nominations from incumbents Herb Gill, Elaine Schretlen and Richard Thomas.

As we received three nominations for three positions, these nominees have been elected by acclamation.

The terms of office of the three directors will take effect at the close of our 2021 Annual General Meeting.

We encourage members to consider participating in the governance of their credit union and respond to future opportunities.

As a credit union member-owner and eligible shareholder, you will enjoy an equal right (one member, one vote) to vote representatives to the Board and thus participate in decisions affecting the overall direction of your credit union.

Also, any member who is qualified and willing to serve as a director, is eligible for nomination. Being a director requires study, time and commitment to actively participate in making decisions relating to the credit union's current and future operations, goals and corporate strategies.

A call for nominations for the Board of Directors is generally announced in the Fall Member Newsletter with information on number of vacancies and terms of service. Voting for nominees is done by in-branch or mail balloting prior to the Annual General Meeting in the Spring of the following year.

The Board of Directors, elected by and accountable to our membership, governs GVC Credit Union. By focusing on the best interests of the credit union, they are committed to the achievement of our goals and objectives.
