Have you ever wondered what it would be like to help run a business with over $140 million in assets and over 13,000 members? Do you want to help others meet their financial goals? Are you looking for a way to use your skills and talents to give something back to your community? Are you interested in helping to set the future direction for a dynamic organization?
Become an Alta Vista Credit Union Volunteer!
Alta Vista Credit Union volunteers do all that- and much more! As a member-owned financial cooperative, Alta Vista 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 (website, online banking), branch deployment, product development, marketing and member services. By becoming an Alta Vista 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. Alta Vista volunteers are an integral part of our success.
How Alta Vista Credit Union Volunteers Serve
Volunteers who come together for the sole purpose of representing the best interest of Alta Vista'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 Alta Vista's membership at the annual meeting. They set future strategy, develop policies, oversee Alta Vista'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 elected to three year terms of office by Alta Vista's membership at the annual meeting. The Supervisory Committee verifies credit union records, monitors financial controls and procedures, and works with Alta Vista’s internal auditors and external audit firm. Committee members typically meet on a quarterly basis, and have access to free training and education to help them fulfill their role.
