As cooperative financial institutions, every credit union is owned equally by its membership. This membership also elects the credit union’s Board of Directors, which is comprised of representatives from its membership.


As elected advocates representing the membership, the Board of Directors is responsible for setting the vision and direction of Elevations Credit Union to expertly serve its members and provide high-quality financial services. Their duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Serving on committees and attending regular meetings as a Board to establish policy and business strategy 

  • Providing direction, feedback and counsel to the Chief Executive Officer, who is hired by and reports to the Board of Directors 

  • Reviewing financial, operational and regulatory performance 

  • Overseeing Elevations Credit Union’s progress toward its strategic goals and objectives

As Elevations Credit Union has grown and become more complex, there is an ever-growing level of responsibility and commitment of time and effort needed from the Directors, including a need for a higher commitment to training and education. The Board meets regularly in addition to participating in ongoing educational opportunities. The time commitment required of all Board Members is a minimum of 24 hours per month, with Board Officers generally expending significantly more than the minimum.

All applicants to the Board of Directors are subject to appropriate background screening and bondability requirements.
