Calling All Volunteers!

If you are a board member, volunteer or a credit union professional that works with the board, you will want to make plans to attend the Suburban Chapter Meeting and join the facilitated discussion about what boards must get right!


Strategy development

Oversight of the credit union strategic direction always has been a core responsibility of the board, but, for many credit unions, strategic discussions have become more urgent in the past few years as threats and opportunities have become increasingly dynamic.

Risk management

Risk management is an area where expectations on boards have changed dramatically, and boards’ approach has evolved to become more in-depth, broader in scope and influenced by real-life scenarios. In the past, boards tended to focus on financial risk. Today, risk is defined more broadly, encompassing not just financial matters, but also areas such as the environment, information technology and security, and credit union reputation.

Tools for an effective board

  • Board succession and recruiting directors with the skills and experience needed for the range of governance and strategic issues the board handles.
  • Manage the board’s time well. Boards are most effective when they are well prepared and structure directors’ limited time together to focus as much as possible on the most valuable board activities, including strategy, risk and succession planning.
  • Conduct a regular board effectiveness assessment. Regular board assessments provide boards with an opportunity to identify and remove obstacles to better performance and to highlight what works well.
