The VPL may be expected to attend community events (both religious and non-religious) and must be comfortable talking to a diverse range of individuals, including pastors and members of local churches.
As the VPL, you will report to the chief lending officer. The VPL directs and coordinates all consumer lending and collection activities within the credit union, ensuring compliance and development of the credit union’s lending and collection policy.
