How's your credit union doing? As a board member, you have an obligation to know and understand how your credit union performs financially. As a director, you are responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars of members’ money. It makes sense that you understand how your credit union is doing before anyone has to tell you.

NCUA Regulation 701.4(b)(3) requires that federal credit union board members are financially literate, able to understand their credit union’s balance sheet and income statement, and “ask appropriate, substantive questions of management.” That said, it also makes sense that board members of state-chartered CUs should understand their financial situation as well. Join us to gain a better understanding of how to monitor whether your credit union is on track, improving, or weakening.


This timely webinar will benefit board members, including associate and new directors, Supervisory Committee members, and other credit union volunteers and staff who wish to understand their credit union’s financial big picture.
