OFCU Board Elections
Each year three board of directors are up for election. Unlike other financial institutions, the nine member board is elected by the membership. The Board has nominated two experienced incumbents with expiring terms, and one candidate to fill the open spot. The three incumbents with expired terms are:
Ed Ervin– has served on our board 30 years, since 1986 and currently serves as Chairman. He retired from the VA Medical Center where he served as Chief Fiscal Officer.
Gary McVey- has served on the board 26 years, since 1989 and is retired from the VA Medical Center where he worked as a Supervisory General Engineer.
Terry Farmer- has served on the board 14 years, since 2001 and works at the VA Medical Center as a Critical Care RN. Terry has decided to retire from the board and is not running for re-election. In his place the board has nominated Glen Monehan.
Glen Monehan retired from the VA Medical Center . The Board through thoughtful consideration has nominated Glen to take Terry's place on the ballot and have full confidence in his abilities.
Any member in good standing may submit their name for nomination by petition. The petition must be signed by at least 1% of the total membership (105 members) and accompanied by a written statement of qualifications, biographical data and a signed statement that he/she is willing to serve as a board member and that he/she understands the responsibility and liability associated with the position.
If you are interested in running for a board position, you may stop by the main facility on Katy Lane to receive a job description, rules, and regulations concerning duties and liabilities, as well as a questionnaire to complete. Deadline for nomination by petition is due February 24, 2017.
Should there be more candidates added, there will be a mail ballot election held in March 2017. The election results will be announced at the annual meeting.
