BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

The members of the Board of Directors are volunteers. Specifically, the Board of Directors is responsible for directing and controlling the affairs of the Credit Union. Though the Board members will not personally perform the task themselves, the board is ultimately responsible for making sure the Credit Union:

 

•     Is properly managed by a qualified CEO and competent staff;

•     Operates using sound business practices as mandated by NCUA;

•     Complies with all applicable federal laws and regulations;

•     Achieves the goals stated in the charter, the 5 year strategic plan and the business plan;

•     Fulfills its purpose of making low-cost loans and encouraging thrift;

•     Provides adequate financial reserves to cover possible losses;

•     Protects against unauthorized or illegal acts through safe operating procedures and purchase of fidelity bond coverage.

To carry out its role in meeting the above requirements, YOUR Board develops policies, approves programs, hires and evaluates the CEO and appoints various committees. The FAMU Federal Credit Union has seven (7) members on the Board of Directors, who serve staggered three (3) year terms.

The term of one (1) member will expire in March 2018. In accordance with NCUA Bylaws, the Chairman of the Board appointed a Nominating Committee to recommend qualified members to fill this vacancy. Hence, the Committee recommended the following individuals:
