We are looking for dedicated people who are interested in joining our team as a member of our Board of Directors. Volunteering to serve on your credit union’s Board of Directors can be an extremely rewarding experience. Not only will you gain valuable knowledge, but you will also be representing your fellow credit union members and be in a position to help them realize their financial goals and dreams.
Credit unions are not-for-profit corporations that are owned and operated by their members. It is the directors’ responsibility to set the credit union’s objectives and long term goals. As a credit union board member you have the ability to be a voice for the North Star Credit Union members and help us build a strong financial future.
Expectations of a credit union volunteer are:
- Believing in the credit union philosophy
- Attend meetings and participate in credit union functions. Board meetings are typically once a month.
- Have a willingness to learn
- Act in the best interest of your fellow credit union members
- Be a team player
Each year the board will appoint a nomination committee who will review the applications and Petitions for the office of director and select the individuals who are qualified for the position. If there is more than one qualified candidate, then there will be a mail ballot. Nominations for elections may only be made by the nominating committee or by petition to the nominating committee signed by at least 20 members or 1% of the total membership, whichever is greater. The petition must be filed with the chairperson at least 60 days prior to the annual meeting. Directors are elected to a three-year term and may run for re-election if they wish.
If you are interested in joining our team please fill out an application to the Board of Directors and mail, email, fax or turn in your completed application to:

Director positions do not always vacate every year, so please be patient. We will keep a list of potential candidates for future openings. Applications must be turned in at least 60 days prior to the annual meeting. Please complete this application. Use additional pages if required.
