Applications to Serve on MnCUN Committees Due March 16
Are you looking for a professional development opportunity, or a way to get more involved in with the Network? Network Committees will be appointed after the MnCUN Annual Meeting and we are looking for interested members. There are several opportunities to get involved by serving on one of the following Board Committees:
Awards Committee - facilitates statewide and national awards programs and judges other states’ award program entries. On the national level, the committee coordinates Minnesota’s entries for CUNA’s Dora Maxwell and Louise Herring Awards and the Desjardins Award for Financial Education. On the state level, the committee recognizes individuals through the Professional and Volunteer of the Year Awards. Network Staff Liaison: Laura Whittet
Political Involvement Committee (PIC) - provides input and recommendations on legislative efforts at the state and federal level. Policy suggestions and regulatory roadblocks are brought to the attention of PIC to collectively formulate the Network’s positions on legislation. PIC is also responsible for political fundraising, and oversees the distribution of political contributions made to credit union-friendly candidates. Network Staff Liaison: Ryan Smith
Regulatory Review Committee - provides input and recommendations on proposed rules from various federal agencies that have the potential to impact credit unions. The committee meets regularly to review proposed rules that are out for comment and determines whether a response is necessary. Network Staff Liaison: Tim Tacheny
Committee members serve for one year – from their appointment through the following year’s Annual Meeting. Please express your interest by completing a short application form. Applications will be accepted through March 16. The Network Board Chair will appoint Committee members following the Annual Meeting in April.
