Volunteer


Mission City FCU seeks passionate, committed, and qualified volunteers for its board of directors and supervisory committee


Becoming a Volunteer
Volunteering to serve on your credit union’s Supervisory Committee or Board of Directors can be an extremely rewarding experience. You will represent your fellow credit union members as well as share your valuable knowledge to benefit our membership. Any member in good standing age 18 years of age or older may apply for a vacancy. The Mission City Federal Credit Union Nominating Committee reviews all nominees for a vacancy and selects the individual(s) who possess the skills and experience necessary for the open position.

Meetings & Term Duration
Each group of volunteers, Supervisory Committee, and Board of Directors meet separately either semi-monthly or monthly. There are times, however, when special meetings are necessary and can be called during the day or evening. The meetings are extremely important and must be given a high priority to attend and participate in discussions regarding the information you need to make decisions on behalf of our membership.

Both Supervisory Committee and Board of Directors positions are elected to a three (3) year term and may run for re-election.

Qualification
The credit union seeks input from members who come from a diverse range of experience and educational backgrounds to comprise its board of directors. As such, there are no minimum experience or educational requirements to apply for a volunteer position at Mission City Federal Credit Union.

As a volunteer for the Board of Directors or Supervisory Committee, you represent the Mission City FCU membership, so because of that, you are required to be a member at the time of your application.
