Board and Elections

2022 Board of Directors’ Election

In our fall newsletter, nominations were invited to fill three positions available on GVC’s Board of Directors, each for a three year term of office. The deadline for nominations was November 15th, 2021.

By the close of nominations we had received nominations from incumbents Shaun Olafson and Ken Sherwood, and new candidate Laurie Bachynski.

Since three nominations were received for three positions, the candidates have been elected by acclamation.

2022 Elected Directors
Subject to the Financial Institutions Act, elected directors shall take office at the close of the Annual General Meeting on May 11th, 2022.

We encourage members to consider participating in the governance of their credit union and respond to future opportunities.

As a credit union member-owner and eligible shareholder, you will enjoy an equal right (one member, one vote) to vote representatives to the Board and thus participate in decisions affecting the overall direction of your credit union.

Also, any member who is qualified and willing to serve as a director, is eligible for nomination. Being a director requires study, time and commitment to actively participate in making decisions relating to the credit union's current and future operations, goals and corporate strategies.

A call for nominations for the Board of Directors is generally announced in the Fall Member Newsletter with information on number of vacancies and terms of service. Voting for nominees is done by in-branch or mail balloting prior to the Annual General Meeting in the Spring of the following year.

The Board of Directors, elected by and accountable to our membership, governs GVC Credit Union. By focusing on the best interests of the credit union, they are committed to the achievement of our goals and objectives.
