Call for Nominations: Board and Credit Committee

Are you looking for an impactful way to grow as a professional, an activist, and a community leader? Are you passionate about social justice and economic solidarity? Do you have ideas to help Cooperative Federal become a 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. The board is charged with governance and strategic leadership. 

Members also volunteer for the Credit Committee: a group of members that oversee lending activity at Cooperative Federal and review loan applications that fall outside of our regular guidelines, determining whether policy exceptions are warranted. 

Nominations Process

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

Submissions for the 2021 Election are due by Wednesday, June 30!

Coop Fed's Nominations Committee will review all submissions, interview qualified nominees, and then announce a slate of candidates to the membership. 

Nominees are elected by their fellow credit union members at the Annual Meeting.

Questions? Please send an email to the Nominations Committee. 

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 and a strong commitment to the mission of Cooperative Federal: rebuilding our local economy in ways that foster justice, serving people and communities that are underserved by mainstream financial institutions, and responsibly managing our members' assets. Our work is centered around values of inclusion, equity, and anti-racism. 

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.
