KCU values diversity and is actively seeking candidates with a broad range of experiences, perspectives and backgrounds. This board member position is an excellent way to leverage your leadership, strategic thinking, and dedication to community.

As a board member, you will be mentored to understand the credit union’s strategic vision, mission, and values.  You will be an active participant deciding the strategic direction of the organization, involved in governance, and provide executive level oversight.  This will require a deep knowledge of the credit union’s products and services as well as a thorough knowledge of the credit union’s financials, community impact, and overall performance.

A board member typically contributes a minimum of 150 hours a year in board related activities. The new board member must be committed in both time and attention to helping KCU be a beacon of financial wellness and community service.

The new board member should think independently, deliver progressive leadership, and understand the membership and communities served. The board seeks a member who supports an environment where forward-thinking is the norm and recognizes and appreciates other board members’ contributions.
