Each year Metro holds an Annual Meeting open to all members of the Credit Union. The 2021 Annual Meeting is currently planned for Saturday, March 6th at 9:00 a.m. at the Marriott Regency Hotel in Omaha. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Annual Meeting will include only the business meeting and reports as required in the Credit Union’s bylaws. There will be no meal or door prizes, and seating will be limited to accommodate social distancing. There is no cost to attend but please call 402-551-3052 to reserve a seat.
Each year, three directors are elected to the Credit Union Board. In 2021, three incumbents, Treasurer Tim Lonergan, Director Bob Nelson, and Secretary Mick Connolly
have each expressed a desire to serve an additional term and have been nominated to Metro Credit Union do so by the Nominating Committee. In accordance with our bylaws, nominations from the floor are not permitted. When the number of candidates equal the number of open positions, no ballot election will be held.
Current Metro members in good standing who have an interest in running for the Board after the Nominating Committee has submitted a slate of candidates may do so by submitting a Petition signed by 1% of current members (approximately 430 as of writing), along with a statement of qualification and biographical information. This petition must be submitted to the Nominating Committee by January 22, 2021.
Metro Credit Union Directors serve as uncompensated volunteers elected from the membership to three year terms. Directors are required to attend meetings at least monthly and be available for possible Committee assignments, special meetings, and training throughout the year.
