BOARD OF DIRECTORS


The Board deals with matters of overall long-term strategy and policy, rather than the day-to-day operations of the credit union. They work closely with the senior executive team to strengthen the performance of HMECU for the benefit of members, employees, and the communities we serve. 

Directors are elected by the members of Healthcare and Municipal Employees’ Credit Union to act collectively as the Board of Directors (the “Board”) to lead the organization to the achievement of its mission and vision while adhering to its corporate values and business philosophies. This is a significant responsibility that requires exemplary conduct and the commitment, experience, ingenuity, and expertise of each Director.  For more information on the role of an HMECU Board of Director, please read our Board of Director Position Description

Role of the Board

  • Hire and delegate authority to the President and CEO.

  • Communicate with members and other stakeholders.
