Become a Constellation FCU Volunteer!

Constellation Federal Credit Union volunteers do all that- and much more! As a member-owned financial cooperative, Constellation relies on member volunteers to serve on its Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee. Volunteers ensure financial soundness and guide strategic and policy decisions in a wide variety of areas including technology (i.e, website, online banking), branch deployment, product development, marketing and member services. By becoming a Constellation FCU volunteer, you can help your credit union continue to grow and respond to members' needs. Volunteering also provides an exciting opportunity to learn, develop business and leadership skills, and network with others. Constellation volunteers are an integral part of Constellation's success.
 

How Constellation FCU Volunteers Serve

Volunteers who come together for the sole purpose of representing the best interest of Constellation's members are the cornerstone of what makes credit unions unique. Our volunteers enrich the lives of all the members they represent, and enhance their own leadership, management, and financial skills.

Board of Directors: Board members are elected to three year terms of office by Constellation's membership at the annual meeting. They set future strategy, develop policies, oversee Constellation's financial security, review the CEO's progress in achieving goals and objectives, represent the interest of the entire membership, and report to the members at the annual meeting. In addition to attending monthly board meetings, directors have opportunities to serve on committees and task forces and to receive free training and education on issues important to the credit union and its members.

Supervisory Committee Members: Committee members are appointed by the Constellation Board of Directors on an annual basis. The Supervisory Committee verifies credit union records, monitors financial controls and procedures, and works with Constellations' internal auditors and external audit firm. Committee members typically meet on a monthly basis, and have access to free training and education to help them fulfill their role.
