Call for Nominations for Moya Financial Board of Directors
Every year, Moya Financial holds its Board of Directors’ election for available positions.
Moya Financial is always interested in new directors joining the Board. Any Moya Financial member who is interested and meets the criteria can inquire and apply to be a part of a dynamic team responsible for shaping the organization’s strategic direction and for ensuring appropriate processes and controls to manage and monitor applicable risks.
Joining the Board of Directors is a great way to make a difference in your community. Each director should have a deep commitment to our credit union as a cooperative financial banking organization striving to deliver innovative and competitive financial services to help our members achieve their financial goals.
Moya is looking primarily for individuals with one or more of the following:
- CGA, CMA, CA, CPA, or CFA designation
- Strategic planning experience
- CHRP designation
- Marketing, compliance/regulatory/risk, or project management experience
- Business development experience
- Senior Management experience at a medium or large size firm (e.g. CEO, CFO, COO)
The Board recognizes the benefits of having a diverse composition. It has identified diversity as an essential element in attracting high-calibre directors, maintaining a high-functioning Board, and building a competitive advantage.
Directors will have a significant amount of preparatory reading and analysis to complete before Board or committee meetings that require advanced financial insight and experience in corporate governance and prudential risk management. The workload is approximately 8–10 hours per week. Directors must constructively and actively contribute to all directors’ discussions in a collaborative and collegial atmosphere.
The election process will begin in early December 2021. Three Board positions are open for the upcoming election for a three-year term. The Nominating and Member Relations Committee will accept new director applications from Monday, December 1, 2021, until 12:00pm EST on Friday, December 31st, 2021.
Every member with a minimum of $50 in membership shares will be allotted one ballot for voting purposes. Ballots will be issued by mail before the start of the election period on February 28, 2022, along with voting instructions and a list of candidates and their biographies. All materials will be posted on MoyaFinancial.ca.
