What is a Credit Union?
The Credit Union is a non-profit, self-help organization that is run by the directors and committee members to help the economic well being of members. The profits go back to the members in the form of dividends and services. Since upkeep costs are low, the Credit Union can also offer low interest rates on loans.
As a member, you are an owner of the Credit Union and are important to its future. You have the right to ask questions, propose new services, offer criticisms, take part in discussions at any time during and especially at any monthly meeting. Make arrangements by contacting the office or a board member.
The officers are chosen by the Board of Directors to serve one year terms. The officers are: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
A Credit Committee of three members is also elected by the members at the annual election. This committee has the final authority to approve and disapprove loans to members. Board policy gives guidelines to the Credit Committee.
A Supervisory Committee, who are appointed by the board, are responsible for auditing the Credit Union records. This committee should be informed of any problems or questions concerning accounts.
