Associate Director Application

Associate Director Application

One of the ways credit unions differ from other financial institutions is by their governance through a volunteer Board of Directors. Credit union boards are comprised of volunteers who are members of the credit union themselves. Serving without pay, the directors provide strategic direction that prioritizes the financial well-being of the credit union members before profit.
