Ensuring accessibility and inclusion
For several years now, OAS FCU has been using eVoting, an electronic system that allows members to elect the official volunteers for the Board of Directors and the Credit Committee.
We have made the switch from paper to electronic voting so as to stay true to our philosophy. We realized that by serving a membership that lives all over the globe, we had to find a way to reach those who could not come to vote in person on the day of the Annual Meeting. That’s why we were one of the first credit unions in the United States to offer eVoting.
This year, the Board of Directors has named the following individuals to the Nominating Committee:
Chair: Margaret Palmer
Member: Teresa Bustamante
Member: Adam Siegel
Member: Karla Bañuelos
Member: María Elena Cruz
Associate Volunteer: Gaby Hernandez
Associate Volunteer: Alejandro Aristizabal
Nomination by Petition
