ATTENTION CEOS OF CU*ANSWERS OWNER CREDIT UNIONS
The lifeblood of any cooperative is the active owner. Cooperatives rely on owners who are active not just as consumers of the cooperative’s products and services, but also as owners with a passion for ensuring the cooperative is the type of organization they want to own. As such, the CU*Answers Board of Directors is excited to announce that it is now accepting applications for its Associate Board Member program.
The candidate selected during the October 2023 board meeting will begin a two-year term in January 2024. Associate board members participate as non-voting members in the boardroom, lending their voice to the CUSO’s governance, taking on special assignments, and filling vacancies between election cycles.
