Become a Volunteer Member of the Board of Directors
One of the key differences between banks and credit unions is the democratic structure and control of credit unions. Our Board of Directors is not a group of paid shareholders, but a group of volunteers who are elected by the membership to oversee the governance of the financial cooperative. When you become a board member, you are making a commitment to serve the organization and its membership in a way that maximizes the shared interest of all members and stakeholders.
Individuals wishing to nominate themselves must be a member of Community Choice Credit Union in good standing. The nomination process begins with completing the application.
