For the 2020 Board of Directors election process, there are four vacancies and members will elect candidates out of a slate of six to fill all four positions (four three-year terms). As per East Coast Credit Union Bylaws (Section 6.13): Where the nominees are to be elected for various terms with one ballot, the nominee(s) receiving the highest number of votes shall be declared elected for the longest term(s).

Election results will be announced at our Annual General Meeting on April 14, 2020. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our AGM will only be accessible virtually by way of a livestream option that will be available on our website on April 14 at 7:00 pm. We are committed to providing our members and staff with a healthy and safe environment and are taking appropriate precautions to help prevent further spread of the virus.

Why should I vote? How can I vote for four candidates when I only know one or two individuals that are offering? Why does the Board matter? Please view our Director Elections Q&A for more information on why your vote counts, how to get to know and evaluate the candidates, and why the Board matters to you and your community.

Are you Eligible to Vote?

Every member who is 19 years of age and over and in good standing* is entitled to one vote.

*Share balance of not less than $5. The Credit Union Act 71(1) and 71(2) does not allow owners to vote more than once per question or to vote by proxy.
