Rucker for the past 29 years and has been a member of the credit union for the same number of years. He is a graduate of the Alabama Aviation College in Avionics and Aviation Maintenance. He also holds an Associates Degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology from Wallace Community College.
While the Nominating Committee has completed their job by nominating at least one qualified person to fill each open position on the Board, every member has the right to run for any of the open positions on the Board by petition. In order to comply with election rules set by the Board of Directors each member wishing to run for office by petition must notify the Secretary (Brian Free) of the Credit Union or the CEO (Frank Garrett) of the Credit union of their desire. Two business days after the notification they may pick up a Board approved petition from the Credit Union. No other form of petition will be allowed. At a minimum, the Board approved petition will consist of 10 pages with the Candidates name across the top of each page of the petition and with the Credit Unions seal over the name on each page. The petition will also have a place for each member’s signature and printed name. Only Credit Union members 19 years and older may sign, and each member’s signature only counts one time on any one person’s petition. Each petition must be signed by at least 1% of the members of the IAM Community Federal Credit Union. Each petition must be presented to the Secretary or turned in to CEO Frank Garrett no later than 3:00 PM on the 30th of December, 2015. Each Petition must be accompanied by a brief statement of qualifications and biographical data in a form approved by the Board of Directors. Each Petition must be accompanied by a signed certificate from the nominee stating that they are agreeable to nomination and will serve if elected.
Thank you for your continued Support!
