One of the greatest benefits of credit union membership is that you can have a say in its future and be involved in its progress.
When you volunteer with your credit union, you help to ensure that Georgia Heritage FCU is on solid financial ground and that the interests of the members are protected.
Board of Directors
The Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union Board of Directors consists of primary account holders who volunteer their skills and time to protect the interests of everyone involved.
Directors serve three-year terms and participate in board dinner meetings that are routinely held at 5 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Board members also are expected to attend the Annual Meeting in March and the Strategic Planning Session in November.
Board members should be knowledgeable about basic finance and accounting practices. Some training is offered, and online training programs are available to volunteers.
With the help of internal and external auditors and examiners, the Supervisory Committee reviews the accuracy of the credit union’s financial statements, serving as the credit union’s first line of defense against fraud and embezzlement.
The committee’s goal is to safeguard members’ assets within the credit union, and address members’ complaints in a structured and efficient manner.
