The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) is currently seeking candidates for its volunteer Board of Directors. Four seats have terms expiring at the end of 2022.
Three seats are eligible for applications—two incumbents will seek re-election—while the fourth seat will be appointed by CUNA. To be considered, applications must be received by 4 p.m. ET on Oct. 28.
The Foundation is the charitable arm of the U.S. credit union movement. Through innovative grants, experiential learning and education programs, industry events and resources, it serves as a catalyst to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.
“Over the last decade, the Foundation has rallied the credit union movement to focus on improving financial well-being for all,” said Executive Director Gigi Hyland. “We have established a system-wide understanding of both the need in our communities, and the opportunity for credit unions to grow and thrive by addressing it. Now the credit union movement must act.
“The Foundation’s role as a catalyst is to ignite that action. To support and explore opportunities for innovation, to inspire change at a local level that has national impact. The strategic counsel of our Board of Directors is critical to that work.”
The seats and qualifications for each are as follows:
