What if board members of US credit unions would not be unpaid volunteers, but the pay would depend on how large proportion of members vote in board elections.
Most board elections are uncontested, with low voter participation.
It would incentivise an engaging contest. Votes for candidates who did not get elected would still mean more pay for those elected.
To be paid more, one would be encouraged to encourage members to hold one accountable.
Will donate 500$ to 1st CU that wants to do it.
@LeoSammallahti this is definitely worth a shot!
