Board and Elections

2021 Board of Directors Call for Nominations

Every year, East Coast Credit Union holds its Board of Directors Election for available director positions. Members are invited to run as a candidate in the election, and to vote for candidates who will represent the membership as a Board member.

For the 2021 Board of Directors Call for Nominations, we received four candidate applications to fill five positions on the Board. The candidates were approved by the Nominations Committee on March 11th. A fifth candidate was nominated at the Annual General Meeting on June 29th. All five candidates were elected by acclamation.

Our Annual General Meeting was held virtually on June 29, 2021, along with a Special Meeting component to present a Special Resolution to the membership regarding our amalgamation. For more information, please visit our Corporate Meetings page.

Congratulations to the five successful candidates who will serve on our Board of Directors:
