Board of Directors

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors
is made of members
who lend their managerial
and financial expertise to help guide the direction
and mission of the credit union. Most adult
members of Northwest Community may run
for election for a three-year term on the
board of directors. 

Meet our current Board Members or read
below how you can become a candidate.

About our board and how to run for election

What does a Board Member do?
Board members are responsible for setting policies, approving budgets, and helping to direct strategic planning. They evaluate operations and maintain financial performance standards for the credit union. They are also responsible for appointing the credit union's President/CEO, who reports directly to the Board. Board positions are voluntary and unpaid; however expenses related to Board business are paid for by the credit union.

Who can be a board member?
Candidates must be:

  • members in good standing with the credit union who are eligible to vote in credit union elections and at membership meetings;
  • willing to agree to a criminal background check and a credit check;
  • willing to agree to the credit union’s code of ethics policy;
  • bondable;
  • not be employed by the Credit Union or any subsidiary during the past one year
  • be 21 years of age or older

How long does each Board Member serve?
Terms are for three years. Board members typically devote a minimum of approximately 6 – 8 hours per month to credit union business, including attending monthly Board meetings at our headquarters in Eugene. Additional time may be spent gathering information and training. Courses of study are available to Board members to help them learn more about the operation of a financial institution.

What are the benefits of being a Board Member?
You’ll be a representative voice for your fellow members, and have a direct say in the overall direction of the credit union. You gain knowledge and experience about the running of a financial institution, strategic planning, and about the credit union movement. Board members may also attend conferences and seminars on credit union topics in various locations throughout the country. It is a great way to become part of a unique organization that affects the financial lives of thousands of members.

How can I apply to become a Board Member?

  • A résumé
  • A letter of interest
