Credit unions are member-owned and governed by a board of volunteer directors who are elected democratically by (and from) the membership. Volunteers play a huge role in our industry and take on a lot of responsibility when they take a seat on their credit union's board of directors. Setting policies and the direction of a financial institution in this day and age is not a task to be taken lightly. We hope the information in this section of the website will help.
Here we'll try to address the basics, cover issues important to directors, and recognize their achievements. In the future, we also plan to feature interviews with individual board members and staff they work with.
We want this site to be an important resource for you. Please, check out these pages and tell us what we need to add -- go to our Comments & Suggestions page and leave a comment.
