Board Elections

Kawartha’s Board of Directors 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. Our Governance Committee identifies needed skills for the upcoming year and requests that the Nominating Committee focus on, identify and recommend nominees that will fulfill the skills desired. The Nominating Committee also verifies that each nominee has a good understanding of the nine competencies required of 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.
