Call for Nominations: Board and Credit Committee

Are you looking for an impactful way to get involved with your community?

Are you passionate about cooperative governance or economic solidarity?

Do you have ideas to help Cooperative Federal become a better, stronger organization? 

If those questions describe you or someone you know - submit a nomination for our annual election!


Opportunities to Serve

Cooperative Federal is governed by the Board of Directors: a group of credit union members that serve on a voluntary basis to guide and sustain our organization, and to represent the interests of their fellow members. 

Members also volunteer for the Credit Committee: a group of thoughtful people that review and act on loan applications that fall outside of our regular loan guidelines.


Nominations Process

You can nominate yourself or someone else by completing this brief web form.

Questions? You can also send an email to the Nominations Committee, call Ron at (315) 473-0201, or contact us by fax or mail (Attn: Ron Ehrenreich). 

Coop Fed's Nominations Committee will review all submissions and reach out to the top candidates.

Nominees are elected by their fellow credit union members at the Annual Meeting, which takes place each year in March (stay tuned for details about this year's event!).


Selection Criteria

In order to be eligible to serve on the Board of Directors or Credit Committee, the nominee must be a member of Coop Fed in good standing. Training is provided, and no prior experience is required.

The Nominations Committee looks for individuals with good judgement, a record of community involvement, and a strong commitment to the mission of Cooperative Federal.

We also maintain high standards for Board diversity. People with low or moderate household income, people of color, New Americans, women, and young or emerging leaders are particularly encouraged to get involved.
