The VUL Governance Committee is seeking enthusiastic, skilled and committed candidates to fill three (3) director positions (2-year term) on the VUL Board of Directors.
Role of a Director
The elected Board of Directors provides strategic leadership to the VUL. While the Board is only required to meet four times per year, there are usually six (6) meetings and the Annual General Meeting. In addition to full board meetings and AGM, board members also meet/work for committees such as Finance, Strategic Planning, Human Resources, Hall of Fame, and Governance, with varying time commitments from year to year. More details are available in the VUL Bylaws.
