The Nominating Committee will review all nominations received, interview all eligible candidates and submit a recommendation on candidate endorsement to the Board of Directors for approval. Members will have the option to vote online or by mail. Candidates will have the opportunity to respond by email to member questions during the election period.
Candidate information will be published online and in the voting package during the voting period, January 27, 2021 to February 26, 2021.
The deadline for submitting member resolutions ended at 3pm, November 2, 2020. All resolutions submitted prior to that time will be considered by the Board of ACU.
Under The Credit Unions and Caisses Populaires Act, the Board of ACU may refuse to allow a resolution to be included in the election package under certain circumstances. In such a case, ACU will notify the member within 10 days of receiving the resolution that it has been refused, and will include the reasons for the refusal.
ACU will provide notice to the membership of resolutions that have been submitted through the election packages delivered to members in January 2021. If the member submitting the resolution requests it, ACU will also include a statement by the member of not more than 200 words in support of the resolution, with the name and address of the proposing member. Assiniboine Credit Union’s Board may also provide a statement of its position for or against the resolution.
For further information or to speak with a member of the Nominating Committee, please call Jocelyn Peifer Ross at 204.258.3424.
Voting on a Resolution
In 2021, a properly submitted resolution will be voted on by mail ballot before the Annual Meeting.
Resolutions that are not part of the election package (and therefore, members have not received notice) will be ruled out of order if raised at the Annual Meeting. However, a member may propose from the floor at the Annual Meeting that “The Board of Directors consider …” a certain course of action and ask that the Board of Directors report back at the next Annual Meeting. A formal vote on any such proposal, however, will not be permitted.
As a member of Assiniboine Credit Union, you have a vote and a say in how your business is run, how your profits are invested, and who represents you on our Board of Directors. Our annual meeting is a forum to exercise your democratic right as a voting member.
In 2021, the voting period runs from January 27 to February 26 at 3pm.
