Have you ever given some thought to sharing your knowledge, skills and time by serving as a volunteer at your credit union?
We are always looking for qualified members* to serve on the board of directors and supervisory committee. Perhaps finance, accounting or management is your area of expertise, or maybe it’s in planning, marketing or information technology. This list is by no means all inclusive; your strengths may be in another professional field altogether.
Please consider this a friendly invitation to get more involved with the not-for-profit financial institution you belong to, own and use. This is your chance to be a leader.
Volunteers play an important role in the success of the credit union. Board directors represent the entire membership and establish policies that guide the operation of the credit union. Supervisory committee members, on the other hand, operate independently of the board and staff to ensure that the credit union manages its assets and conducts operations in a safe and fiscally prudent manner. This includes making certain that all regulations, procedures and policies governing Arsenal are followed.
One of the many “rights” you have as a primary member (account holder) is to run for elected office, as well as vote during annual elections that are held in April. Credit unions represent democracy in action.
If you’re a little unsure about serving, fear not! We have “associate” positions available that enable you to get a feel for what it’s like to be on the board or supervisory committee by attending monthly meetings held in the evening and observing, learning, and participating in discussions that affect membership overall. Free self-study training courses are also provided.
We’ve made it very easy for you to apply for a volunteer position through an interactive form on our website (ArsenalCU.org). If you prefer to have a paper version be mailed to you or have any questions, please call Heather Reed at 314.919.1002.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
*Must be a primary member (i.e., you're listed first on your account; anyone else listed on your account with you is a joint member) in good standing and at least 18 years old. Besides a savings account, you will need to have at least one of the following relationships established with the credit union: checking, money market account, CD, IRA, business account, loan, online bill pay or direct deposit.
