Board of Directors

Since 1956 the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee volunteers have played an important role to help East County Schools Federal Credit Union stay focused on its membership. In serving on a Board of Director/Supervisory Committee, member-volunteers exemplify the Credit Union’s people helping people philosophy.

ECSFCU Supervisory Committee Volunteer Application
ECSFCU Board of Directors Volunteer Application

Supervisory Committee: Supervisory Committee members are appointed each year by the Board of Directors. Interested member-owners should complete an application.

Supervisory Committee members primary responsibility is to provide oversight for all internal and external examinations to ensure resolution of any exceptions noted.

Board of Directors: Board of Directors are elected by our member-owners. Board of Directors will serve three year terms in a rotating annual format with two seats open for election in 2023 (plus the two 2022 appointed new members*), three seats open for election in 2024, and two seats open in 2025 and so forth. East County Schools FCU bylaws require a minimum of two member-owners to be nominated for each open seat on the Board. Nominations can also be made by petition from member-owners.

The deadline to submit Board of Director nominations and petitions is generally the first Friday in November. All nominations must include a signed volunteer application from the nominee stating that he or she will serve if elected. Ballots will be sent to all primary member-owners in January. Should there only be one nominee for each of the two seats, there will NOT be an election by ballot, and no nominations from the floor will be accepted at the Annual Meeting.

  • Complete and sign the Volunteer Application with your written statement of 100 words or less
  • Return the application to the Nominating Committee via mail (or drop off at the credit union) by the 
    November 11, 2022 deadline.

Annual Meeting and Elections

Annual meetings are open to all member-owners.
The 2022 ECSFCU Annual Meeting and election will be February 23, 2023 at 5:15pm in the El Cajon Branch

*We have grown! In May 2022 two new Board members were approinted to our Board of Directors. Our Credit Union has doubled its assets in the last six years and so we utilized our standing rules and created two more board positions; and to keep our institutional memory, moving forward all board positions three-year terms. The current board appointed the two members chosen from the submitted applications, to serve until February 2023 when they will be up for election by the membership to fulfill the remaining two years of their three-year term.

    When I became an ECSFCU member, I immediately refinanced my house and got better rates for two cars. East County School employees who are just starting out, this is the best place to be! ECSFCU can help you secure your financial life.
