Capitol Credit Union Directors serve the Credit Union in a volunteer capacity.
Elected positions are generally for a three-year term. The Board is responsible for setting policies, overseeing the maintenance of the financial viability, setting dividend and loan rates and charting the future direction of Capitol Credit Union. They meet on a monthly basis to review the prior month’s activities, vote on proposals presented by management, and are apprised of any issues needing their attention. In addition to regular monthly meetings, Board members attend planning sessions and regulatory review meetings.
The Board that you have selected works hard to maintain Capitol Credit Union as a financial institution that can not only meet your financial needs but can exceed them through the products, services and staff that make up your Credit Union.

Nominating Committee for the Board of Directors
Elections for the Capitol Credit Union Board of Directors are conducted at the Annual Meeting in March of each year. A Nominating Committee, appointed by the Board, solicits interested members and conducts interviews of Board candidates when positions become available. If there is a vacancy mid-term, the selected candidate is presented to the Board which votes on filling the position through the next annual meeting.
Message from the Nominating Committee
The Board of Directors appointed us to the Nominating Committee and tasked us with reviewing candidates who wish to fill vacant and expired positions on the Board. This said, the Nominating Committee unanimously recommends the following candidates to serve on the 2017 Capitol Credit Union Board of Directors:
- Position 4 – Karim Hirani
- Position 5 – Michael Jones
- Position 6 – Kevin Cooper
Please be aware that recent Credit Union By-Law changes no longer require nominations from the floor for vacant board positions. However, nominations for vacancies may also be made by petition signed by one (1%) percent of members with a minimum of twenty (20) and a maximum of five hundred (500). The date for receiving nominations by petition is February 28, 2017. A Director Application requesting a brief statement of qualifications and biographical data can be requested online or from any Capitol Credit Union branch. (it is important to note that elections will not be conducted by ballot when there is only one nominee for each position to be filled).
