Election Procedures
In accordance with our Bylaws, additional nominations for the Board of Directors may be
made by petition. The Nominating Committee issued a call for candidates in September 2018.

Potential candidates were encouraged to put their names forward for consideration by the
nominating committee. The Nominating Committee recommended at least one member for each vacancy.

How to Nominate by Petition
CDC Federal Credit Union members have the ability to petition for nomination to the credit union’s Board of Directors. A petition must be submitted in accordance with the following: A petitioning nominee must prepare and submit the Application for CDC Federal Credit Union Board of Directors and the Petition Forms. The forms can be obtained from CDC Federal Credit Union by calling (404) 325-3270, ext. 5438 or (800) 245-9655 ext.5438 and are available at all CDC FCU branch locations.

The completed Application and Petition Forms must be received at the Main Office located at 2301 Parklake Drive, NE Atlanta, Georgia 30345 and filed with the Secretary of the Board of Directors by January 31, 2019. 

At least 1% (~ 195 members) of eligible voting members must sign the CDC Federal Credit Union Petition Form(s). Each petition signer must be a qualified member of CDC Federal Credit Union as defined by the credit union Bylaws (which means that the individual has met all the requirements of membership) and must be at least 16 years of age.

The Nominating Committee will review the petition nominee(s) application(s) and verify the nominee’s eligibility. If qualifying nominations are received by petition, the names of the nominee(s) will be added to the ballot. No nominee(s) will be added to the ballot unless they are nominated by the Nominating Committee or by approved Petition as stated above. Nominations from the floor will not be permitted.

Failure to follow these procedures will prevent the petition nominee(s) from being placed on the official ballot.

Ballot Voting Method
If only one (1) person is nominated for each vacancy and no qualified petitions were filed, the Chair will take a voice vote or declare each nominee elected by general consent or acclamation at the annual meeting.

If the number of nominees exceeds the number of vacant positions, the Secretary of the
Board will place all nominees before the membership by posting notices in the branches, on the credit union website, and via email communication. A third party provider will
electronically distribute ballots and tally the votes. The results will be announced at the
annual meeting of the membership, April 18, 2019.
