One of the most important differences between credit unions and other institutions is the Board of Directors, elected by the membership. All Directors are members that volunteer their time and expertise to serve. Members vote at the Annual Meeting each year to elect the Credit Union Board. Board members are expected to attend monthly meetings throughout the year. They are also expected to attend educational sessions. This year’s Annual Meeting is at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, 2022.
