The following information is provided as a general overview of league governance. It is not intended to be a complete and exhaustive coverage of bylaws or the requirements and process for becoming involved in the governance of the league.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is elected by the members of the California Credit Union League. The Board consists of nine directors, four representing asset groups and five elected from throughout the state. Directors are elected by electronic ballot to serve staggered three-year terms. Nominations are accepted in the early summer for late-summer elections. Nomination information is sent to each credit union CEO and is also available on the League’s governance website.
The Board of Directors elects board officers from among its members. The chairman and vice-chairman, along with the immediate past chairman and one additional director elected by the Board, serve as an Executive Committee responsible mainly for CEO compensation.
The Board of Directors meets quarterly and serves as the main governing body of the League. It is responsible for the general management of the affairs of the League.
The Chairman appoints committee members to serve on a variety of committees and/or task forces. Committee members are appointed for a one-year term. Members of the League are encouraged to indicate their interest in serving on a committee by completing a Committee Interest Questionnaire. (Click for questionnaire)
