Additional Ballot Items for Review
Adopt 2015 Proposed Dues Schedule—Please note, for 2015, there is NO CHANGE in the CCUL or NCUL Dues formula. The factors are the same as in 2014. The CCUL Board of Directors and the NCUL Board of Directors voted to approve the 2015 Proposed Dues Schedule as presented and recommend adoption by the respective memberships.
In the past, the vote on the annual dues schedule took place by paper ballot at the League’s annual business meeting. In 2013, the practice of casting paper ballots changed to voting by electronic ballot in advance of the annual business meeting. This change allows all voting member credit unions the opportunity to cast a ballot, even if they are unable to attend the annual business meeting. Going forward, the dues vote will be conducted electronically in concert with the Board of Director and CCUL Audit Committee elections.
Adopt Amendments to CCUL and NCUL Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation—The memberships of each League will be asked to vote on Bylaw amendments and a revision to the Articles of Incorporation that would allow credit unions to choose to belong to more than one league and receive the full benefits of membership in multiple states—if certain criteria are met.
