Board of Directors Election Process
The Nominating Committee
In accordance with the Credit Union bylaws (Section 3.06), the Chairman of the Board of Directors shall “appoint a nominating committee of not less than three credit union members in good standing.” The required appointments are Vicki Ritcherson, Bob Clemmons, and Kenneth Ballard.
Nominations by the Nominating Committee
Also as directed by Credit Union bylaws (Section 3.06), “It shall be the duty of the nominating committee to nominate at least one member for each board vacancy, including any unexpired term, for which elections are to be held.” Therefore, the committee nominates the following members, each for three-year terms: Patsy Wilson, Darrel Crump, and Lesa Reed.
Nominations by Petition Procedure
In addition to candidates nominated by the Nominating Committee, members may be nominated by petition. The petition must nominate a member and include a written description of their qualifications and biographical data and must be signed by 2% of members in good standing (or 490 members). There will be no nominations from the floor and the election will not be conducted by ballot when there is only one nominee for each position to be filled.
The Board Secretary must receive any signed petition prior to 5:00pm on Friday, February 21, 2020 at 8401 Quaker Ave., Lubbock, Texas 79424. On the petition is an Agreement to Serve, that must be signed, certifying the petitioner is willing to serve for the term nominated.
