Every member is also an owner at the Virginia Credit Union – and that means you have an important opportunity to serve as a volunteer member of the Board of Directors. If you are interested in volunteering, we ask that you commit to participation in regular meetings and training opportunities.
Directors are elected to represent the membership for a four-year term. The Board of Directors employs and works with our president to develop VACU’s strategic direction. Directors have a fiduciary responsibility to members for the overall performance of our credit union. Directors who are recommended by the board are elected by the membership at the annual meeting. All VACU members are informed on the annual slate of nominees. To allow for advance notice to members about the nominees and proper vetting of candidates’ applications, no nominations are accepted at the annual membership meeting.
The board appoints a Nominating Committee to recommend qualified candidates for expiring terms of Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee members. The Nominating Committee’s review includes incumbents, other volunteers, and members at large who have submitted an application for a volunteer position. Volunteer roles are unpaid.
Inquiries about and applications for volunteer service can be made at any time. However, the application deadline is September 30 for applicants who wish to be considered for nomination to the Board of Directors at the following year's annual meeting. For inquiries and applications send an email to Viki Frankenburger, Executive Assistant, or call (804) 560-5673 or (800) 285-5051, ext. 5673.
