Become a Representative on CFCCU’s Board of Directors.

One of the unique things about a credit union is that it is democratically organized and controlled. That is, the Board of Directors, which sets the policies governing the day-to-day operation of the Credit Union, are all volunteers, elected by the membership to represent their interests. Elections are conducted at the Credit Union’s Annual Meeting.

Any member in good standing over the age of 16 can run for a position on the Board of Directors. Candidates should have knowledge of or a willingness to learn about credit unions and their business processes, as well as a desire to serve the credit union movement. Candidates are expected to prepare for and attend monthly Board Meetings. Also, Board members are expected to serve as appointed on various internal working committees, which also will meet as needed.

Directors normally serve a 3-year term upon election and receive no compensation for their service. If you are interested in serving as a director or finding out more about opportunities to offer volunteer service to the Credit Union, please contact Helen for more information at 319.266.7531.
