The National Credit Union Foundation is currently seeking candidates for its volunteer Board of Directors. Six board seats are either vacant or have terms expiring at the end of 2021. Two of those are appointed seats by CUNA and the State Credit Union Foundation Network (SCUF), respectively.
The remaining four seats are eligible to receive declarations of candidacy. Applications must be received by 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, Oct. 28.
The Foundation serves as the charitable arm of the U.S. credit union movement, working to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.
“This is an exciting time to join our board,” said Executive Director Gigi Hyland. “The political, health and environmental events of the last few years have laid bare the persistent financial inequities of our country, and the Foundation is laser-focused on helping credit unions address these issues.”
“We rely upon our directors to provide strategic counsel to the Foundation and to advocate in support of its mission and work. Our board’s input and guidance are integral to our system’s collective ability to build stronger financial well-being for all.”
The seats and qualifications for each available seat are as follows:
