How To Get Appointed to a NAFCU Committee

NAFCU and member credit unions benefit from the active involvement of its industry professionals. Here's your opportunity to get involved!

NAFCU committees serve to generate ideas and make recommendations to the NAFCU Board of Directors regarding policies and programs to be initiated by the association. Committees are composed of CEOs, volunteers and senior-level staff from NAFCU member credit unions. The expertise of committee members is vital to further fulfill the needs of NAFCU members. 

Committee Structure

Committee assignments are made from regional and at-large selections. Through recommendations to the NAFCU Board of Directors, committee members assist the association in being responsive on current industry issues, as well as identifying new services and programs relevant to the membership. Presently, there are 14 standing committees:

*NAFCU Board members only

Committee Composition & Criteria

In addition to the chair, each committee is composed of twelve to fifteen credit union officials as well as a NAFCU staff liaison who carries out the daily responsibilities for the committee. Committees meet as business may require, at least once a year, with additional telephone and written correspondence as needed.

Committee members must be currently employed as the CEO/President, a member of the Board of Directors, or a senior-level staff member with a NAFCU member credit union. More than one credit union representative may serve on NAFCU committees.

Because the association serves credit unions managed by both senior management and volunteers, it is important that the committees reflect this blend of responsibilities and expertise. Representation from both management and volunteers is a goal in committee appointments. NAFCU strives for representation by women, minorities, and a diversity of both education and experience to closely reflect the composition of credit union officials.

Committee members are selected to serve for a two-year term from January 1st to December 31st of the following year and may be reappointed.
