About our board and how to run for election.
What does a Board Member do?
Board members are responsible for setting policies, approving budgets, and helping to direct strategic planning. They evaluate operations and maintain financial performance standards for the credit union. They are also responsible for appointing the credit union's President/CEO, who reports directly to the Board. Board positions are voluntary and unpaid; however expenses related to Board business are paid for by the credit union.
Who can be a board member?
Candidates must be members in good standing with the Credit Union for at least nnety (90) days; be at least 18 years of age; be willing to agree to a criminal background check and be bondable.
Candidates should possess the personal qualities that are needed to enable them to serve the Credit Union well. They should be honest, unselfish and act for the good of the Credit Union's members. They should be interested in the Credit Union and sufficiently generous to give their own time and skills to the affairs of the Credit Union. They must have the ability to understand and must be able to think for themselves.
Terms are for three years. Board members typically devote approximately 6 hours per month to credit union business, including attending monthly Board meetings at our headquarters in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Additional time may be spent gathering information and training. Courses of study are available to Board members to help them learn more about the operation of a financial institution.
You will be a representative voice for your fellow members, and have a direct say in the overall direction of the credit union. You gain knowledge and experience about the running of a financial institution, strategic planning, and about the credit union movement. Board members may also attend conferences and seminars on credit union topics in various locations throughout the country. It is a great way to become part of a unique organization that affects the financial lives of thousands of members.
