Election & Annual Meeting of the Credit Union

The 68th Annual Meeting of the Credit Union will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2015, at 3:00 p.m., at the Capital Hilton, 1001 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036. On that date the terms of three members of the Board of Directors will expire. In accordance with the Bylaws, members are elected to the Board of Directors by ballot. The results will be announced at the Annual Meeting.

Candidates are selected by the Nominating Committee or by petition. The Nominating Committee names at least one candidate for each position available. The deadline for Nomination by Committee has now passed. The list of candidates selected by the Nominating Committee can be found here. Additional prospective candidates should seek nomination by petition; the process for doing so can be found at the end of the list of candidates. The deadline for nomination by petition is Monday, February 2, 2015.


The BFSFCU Board of Directors is seeking to fill three available director positions and the Nominating Committee has selected eleven candidates. In late February, the Credit Union will be distributing and making available online election ballots to our members. Since voting is a very important decision for our members, the Credit Union will be hosting an event to offer all our members and key stakeholder groups an opportunity to personally meet and greet the candidates prior to the deadline for submitting ballots.

All credit union members are invited to attend the following town hall style meeting:

Date: February 10, 2015
Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: IMF HQ2, Conference Hall 1, Room 1A-820

The candidates will provide a brief introduction of their qualifications and a presentation of what each of them feels are the major opportunities and challenges facing our credit union and how they as Directors would best serve in their supervisory capacity. Their presentation will be followed by a Q & A session.

The Board of Directors are all non-salaried volunteers who are responsible for the overall direction and stability of BFSFCU, as well as establishing policy and guiding credit union management.

As a member of BFSFCU, you are an owner; it is your right to exercise your vote to choose the Board candidates that will best represent you, as well as the entirety of our membership. The voting period will take place from late February through the third week in March both online and through paper ballots and the results will be announced at the Annual Meeting on April 2nd.

We look forward to seeing you on February 10th!

Chief Operating Officer
