Your Community Credit Union is currently accepting applications for volunteers on our Supervisory Committee. This is a busy position that requires thoroughness and attention to detail.
The Supervisory Committee is responsible for ensuring that the Credit Union’s Board of Directors and management establish practices and procedures to properly safeguard members’ assets. In addition, the Committee is responsible for the annual financial statement audit from a licensed, independent auditor.
In accordance with the Federal Credit Union Act, the Supervisory Committee is comprised of volunteer members and functions independently of Credit Union management. As an independent body, the Supervisory Committee also investigates members’ complaints not resolved to their satisfaction by management.
While different things motivate different people, some of the following reasons are cited as benefits of being a volunteer:
- Meaningful opportunity to contribute—helping others
- Opportunity to contribute to members’ financial welfare
- Increase planning, policy and management experience
- Staff-volunteer social events
- Learning experience
If you are a member in good standing and are interested in applying for the Supervisory Committee, you are invited to submit your application to the attention of Jo Ellen Shafer.
