What is the Nominations Committee?

Each year, the Board of Directors appoints a Nominations Committee, which reports directly to the membership at the AGM. The committee makes its best efforts to identify and encourage nominations from eligible members that are representative of the diversity of the credit union, and who possess the skills, knowledge and expertise required to serve on the Board of Directors. The Committee reviews the nominations to ensure the nominees are eligible candidates for the Board of Directors.
