What is a Volunteer?
A volunteer is actively involved, within the context of the organization’s policy governance model, in the policy-making, strategic planning, and oversight responsibilities necessary for the success and well-being of the credit union and its members.
The credit union Board sets the policies of your CU. These policies need to (among others):
- Protect the assets that your fellow members have invested
- Provide the best service fiscally possible
- Insure that sound security is provided for your member’s assets and information
The best possible Board and Committees include persons with varied backgrounds, skills, and across all age groups. During January, the Nominating Committee will be seeking applications from members that would like to consider serving on the Board. Applications to help with the Supervisory Committee can be submitted at any time.
If you might be interested, ask any member of your credit union staff for an application, or ask to talk with a member of the current Board for more information.
