​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 designation
  • Strategic planning experience
  • CHRP designation
  • Marketing experience
  • Business development experience

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. To that end, the Board has determined that its ideal composition includes a mix of genders and cultures and has set targets for each element.

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 December 2020. Three Board positions are open for the upcoming election for a three-year term. Two of our current Board members will be seeking re-election. The Nominating and Member Relations Committee will accept new director applications from Monday, December 7, 2020, until Friday, January 8, 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 March 1, 2021, along with voting instructions and a list of candidates and their biographies. All materials will be posted on this page; be sure to periodically check back for updates.
