Welcome Owners!

We believe a lively democratic process is essential for a healthy Cooperative.  And since we’re a Cooperative just like your credit union is, CU*Answers is walking the talk with our owners.

On this site you can meet the candidates vying to fill a spot on the CU*Answers Board of Directors.  This year’s election will take place at the Stockholders Meeting on June 27, 2018 but you can cast your vote early by participating in e-voting (learn more).

Check out this year’s candidates.  Read their story about how they plan to contribute on the Board and represent you as an owner.  While you are here, read up on the election rules and find out more about how you can put your hat in the ring next year to serve on the Board!

Results of the 2015 Bylaws Changes Vote

The 2015 election included a proposal to adjust the organization’s bylaws, including changes to streamline electronic notification and voting procedures, new language to comply with NCUA Rule 712.3 (“The CUSO Rule”), and a change to broaden the pool of candidates eligible for the CU*Answers Board.

After tallying the votes during the Annual Stockholders Meeting on June 17, 2015, the first two proposed changes (electronic voting procedures and the CUSO rule) were passed.  However, although voter turnout was excellent, the third change (broadening the rules for candidate eligibility) was not approved by the necessary margin (two-thirds of all shareholders eligible to vote).
