Cooperative CUSO CU*Answers recently announced that is accepting associate board member applications as part of a reorganized program. The Nominating Committee of the CUSO’s board of directors will be accepting applications through August 10 for one associate member spot. Associate board members participate as non-voting members in the boardroom, lending their voice and building a deep bench of board-ready candidates that can take on special assignments or fill vacancies between election cycles.
“Active owners drive the health of any cooperative,” said CU*Answers Board Member and Nominating Committee-Chair Scott McFarland. “Passionate owners ensure that the cooperative we build together is one we are proud to be a part of. Part of this is an active community of credit union CEOs who are interested in guiding CU*Answers forward through voluntary service on the board of directors.”
To qualify to serve as an associate board member, the applicant must be the CEO or equivalent of a CU*Answers stockholder credit union; must have been a client for at least one year; must abide by the Board Member Handbook; and be willing to travel and participate in meetings. Qualified individuals can apply by visiting the CU*Answers website.
