MIT Federal Credit Union, as a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative dedicated to improving its members' lives, is seeking credit union members who are interested in serving on its volunteer board of directors. Three three-year terms on the board will be open for the 2009 election in the spring.
Members of credit unions elect a volunteer board of directors to oversee the credit union, which makes decisions with the members' best interest at heart, unlike bank directors and employees of the banks who are legally bound to make decisions that benefit stockholders, not customers.
If you are interested in serving on the MITFCU Board of Directors, please contact Maura Lavalle at firstname.lastname@example.org. The application submission deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2008.
