2021 Director Elections


Director Election results will be announced at the AGM on March 10, 2021.

AGM | Review Candidates | Candidate Endorsement

Our member-elected Board of Directors works to ensure that we’re a forward-looking, responsible and successful credit union, driven by what matters most: our members and our communities.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance of Connect First Credit Union, as well as establishing policy and direction in accordance with associated Bylaws and the Alberta Credit Union Act.

Every Board member has a fiduciary responsibility to act honestly and in good faith in the best interests of Connect First Credit Union and to exercise the due care, diligence, and skill that a prudent person would exercise in similar circumstances.

One of the many privileges of your credit union membership is that you have a say in how we’re governed through democratic elections for our Board of Directors (who are all member-owners too!)

Director Election results will be announced at the AGM on March 10, 2021.

Annually Connect First Credit Union reviews its composite skills and experience set on the Board to determine its future needs and to ensure ongoing effective governance. This year, candidates were required to demonstrate an understanding of board governance and bring professional skills, expertise or background in one or more of the following competencies:

  • Credit & Risk Oversight
  • Financial Literacy
  • Human Resources
  • Technology Governance

As you review the candidate profiles, all six (6) candidates have been endorsed and are therefore being recommended to the membership by the Nominations Committee. All candidates participate in a rigorous interview and assessment process, supported by an external consultant, to determine the most qualified relative to the published skills and experience the Board is looking for in 2021.

In the 2021 election, there are four (4) positions available on the Connect First Credit Union Board, all with three-year terms. Get to know the candidates in our 2021 Board of Directors Elections.
