Board of Directors Nomination Deadline has Passed
The deadline for candidates to be nominated for the credit union's 2018 board elections by the Board Nominating Committee has now passed. The slate of 2018 candidates nominated by the Nominating Committee will be posted soon.
However, though the 2018 nominations from the nominating committee have closed, you may also place yourself on the 2018 ballot by collecting the signatures of 1% of the credit union's members (inquire for exact number). Eligible member signatures on the nomination petition must be from Providence FCU members who are at least 18 years of age and who are primary owners of a membership share with Providence FCU. The necessary petition forms can be picked up at Providence FCU’s Milwaukie location or downloaded here. Completed petitions with the requisite signatures must be returned by 4PM on Friday, February 9, 2018. All nominees (including those nominated by the Nominating Committee and those nominated by petition) will be listed on the ballot distributed at the annual meeting in April and the results announced at the end of the meeting.
To Volunteer or Be Considered for Future Nominations
If you would like to be considered for next year's elections or other volunteer opportunities, we would still like to hear from you. While it is infrequent, there are occasions where an opening on the Board of Directors occurs between annual elections and the nominating committee will review possible candidates on file for appointment until the next annual election. Also, there are a variety of volunteer committees that contribute to the success and leadership of Providence FCU (including our Supervisory Committee and periodic community focus groups).
If you are interested in using your skills to support your credit union as a volunteer, simply download the 2018 Volunteer Packet, then complete the application and mail it with your resume back to the Board Nominating Committee. Prospective nominees must be a member of Providence Federal Credit Union, at least 18 years old, and return the completed volunteer application to the Nominating Committee. The nominating committee will collect applications for next year's (2019) board nominations until early December 2018.
If you have any questions about this process or the forms, you may email the Nominating Committee, or you can write us at:
