Board of Directors


The Federation’s Board of Directors is elected by our member credit unions at our yearly business meeting, held during our multi-day Annual Conference. All directors are staff members or volunteer officials of their credit unions, ensuring that the Federation always remains accountable to the grassroots institutions that make up our membership. Click here for a list of Board Responsibilities.
