  • This will be hard to do. If you believe a board is a representation of the membership then 90% of credit union members are retired caucasion men. CU's face two problems with boards. 1. Getting board members who have outlived their role to retire. 2. Finding qualified people who are willing to make the time committment to be on the board. A free meal and occasional trip are not big inducements to work that hard.

  • Expertise can be purchased, leadership and the prioritization of credit union goals is what is important in a board member. I agree that a certain level of sophistication is needed but technical savvy is no substitute for making certain that the leadership of the CU reflects its membership.
