2019 Board of Directors Election

Our Board governs our strategic direction and ensures that Kawartha is managed effectively. Special committees of the Board fulfill certain duties, and one of these is the Nominating Committee. It is the Nominating Committee’s responsibility to recruit candidates (or nominees) to ensure that Kawartha has qualified governance of our Credit Union. The Nominating Committee verifies that each nominee has a good understanding of the nine competencies required to be a Director, including: audit & compliance oversight, Board & CEO performance, credit union operations, financial literacy, governance & ethics, leadership, regulatory environment, risk management oversight, and strategic planning.

Each year we ask our membership to elect candidates to our Board of Directors. As a member and owner of Kawartha Credit Union, you have a say and a voting privilege. In our 2019 election we have four positions on our Board of Directors, each for three-year terms.
