American 1 Credit Union Annual Meeting

Date: August 18, 2022
Location: American 1 Home Office (718 E. Michigan Ave.)
Time: 5pm

How to Petition for Candidacy

Members who wish to become candidates for a position on the Board by petition will be provided with petition forms on which to collect signatures. These documents are downloadable here.

You will also need to provide the following information on an 8.5” x 11” sheet addressed to Martha Fuerstenau, President/CEO:

  • Your name
  • The length of your membership
  • Your occupation
  • Any qualifications for the Board position
  • Why you wish to serve
  • A phone number or address where you can be contacted

You will also need to complete an Application to the Board of Directors, which is downloadable here.

It will be your responsibility to make arrangements to submit the completed petitions and application to an Official of the Credit Union by May 31, 2022,  at 5pm EST (now closed). The Credit Union’s President/CEO will verify the information you provide and the signatures collected. Providing false information to accompany the petition will disqualify you as a candidate, regardless of the number of signatures collected.

You must collect 100 verified signatures of current American 1 Credit Union members in good standing in order to have your name placed on the ballot as a candidate. After the signatures are verified, your bio (along with other candidates and those who may run for re-election) will be posted in our Home Office by July 1, 2022.
