Join us April 6 for our 2022 Annual Business Meeting
The 2022 annual business meeting will be at 6 p.m., April 6. Learn about the credit union’s 2021 achievements from the Chairman of the Board and the President/CEO, and elections of directors to open positions on the Board of Directors. Check back here for details.
The following credit union members have been nominated this year to run for election to three open positions on the Oregon State Credit Union Board of Directors. This slate of nominees offers a range of abilities and experiences that will help your credit union grow and prosper in the years ahead.
Details of the voting procedures: Members were provided an opportunity to add candidates to the ballot via a petition process. Because no petitions were submitted, there is one candidate for each vacancy and the election will not be conducted by ballot. As there is one candidate per vacancy, nominations will not be allowed from the floor at the Annual Business Meeting. The Chair of the Board may declare each nominee elected by acclamation at the meeting. If for any reason a vote is required, no member shall be entitled to vote by proxy, but a member other than a natural person may vote through an agent designated in writing for that purpose. A trustee or other person acting in a representative capacity shall not, as such, be entitled to vote. Irrespective of the number of shares held, no member shall have more than one vote.
