HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. – Due to the recent resignation of NJCUL board member Raymond Del Nero, the NJCUL Board of Directors will be accepting submissions from candidates interested in filling the vacant position on the board. According to League bylaws, “the person selected to fill the vacancy shall be required to run for election in the next election following their appointment, for the balance of the remaining term, if any.” Mr. Del Nero’s term is to expire at the end of 2014, meaning this appointment would expire at that time, in either scenario.
As a part of its charter, the Governance Committee of the NJCUL Board of Directors shall review and determine candidate eligibility according to the NJCUL bylaws and Nomination/Election rules. Interested candidates are to complete the Special Call for Nominations Form and submit to Governance Committee Chair, Leo Ardine, no later than Thursday, October 31, 2013 as outlined on the form. The NJCUL Board of Directors will then consider the qualified candidates and fill the vacancy no later than Tuesday, November 15, 2013.
Because Del Nero was a Tier C “At-Large” director, the Governance Committee will accept submissions from qualified candidates of any asset-sized credit union. For questions regarding the process, please contact Leo Ardine at NJCULdirector@utcu.org or 732-530-8100 ext. 3001. For any other questions, please contact Greg Michlig at email@example.com or 609-448-2426 ext. 106 or Louis Vetere at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-576-2012.
