One of the biggest differences between credit unions and banks is that credit unions are owned and run by their members. Instead of stockholders, we have a board of directors and governing committees made up of volunteers who are members of our cooperative.
This year there are open positions on the Board and Supervisory Committee. Here are the nominee biographies.
