Board Application Process
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 Financial Plus Credit Union in good standing. The nomination process begins with completing the application. Applications will be reviewed by our nominating committee, composed of current board members. The election will take place at our annual meeting unless we have more than 3 nominees for the 3 open positions, then an absentee election will take place in advance of the annual meeting.
Members who would like to run for a board position may do so by submitting a completed Board Candidate Packet no later than October 21, 2022.
If you have questions regarding the application process or duties of a board member, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
