The Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for all the operations and functions of the Credit Union. To carry out this responsibility it must:
  1. Clearly establish policy.
  2. Select competent management.
  3. Assure itself conclusively that management is performing properly.


A Director of the Credit Union is, by definition, one who directs. He/she is not directed by the Treasurer, or President/CEO, the chairman of any committee, or others.

Some of the detailed responsibilities of Directors are as follows:

  • Meet regularly.
  • Approve membership applications.
  • Establish and approve an annual budget.
  • Establish interest rates and approve expenditures.
  • Authorize necessary bond coverage, investments, and depositories for funds.
  • Declare dividends and establish reserves.
  • Fill vacancies on the Board and Committees between annual meetings.
  • Review and act on delinquent loans.
  • Maintain working relationship with Credit Union Management and Committees.
  • Receive and take appropriate action on the reports of the supervisory authorities and examining committee.
  • Review progress of Credit Union in serving member needs.
  • Plan for the long-term development and needs of the Credit Union.

Serving on our Board of Directors is a great way to get involved and make a difference. Each prospective Board of Directors candidate must meet the following minimum criteria before his or her name can be placed on the ballot:

  • Be at least 21 years of age.
  • Be bondable.

  • After the March 2nd deadline, any natural member, in good standing, desiring to be nominated by petition for election shall submit his/her candidacy, in writing; must meet the same criteria as those candidates identified through the Call for Nominations; and must submit a petition supporting his/her candidacy signed by not less than 1% of the members with a minimum of 20 and maximum of 500 natural voting members no later than April 21, 2024.
