Greater Nevada Credit Union

Board of Directors

All of our members, the only owners of Greater Nevada, provide the direction for their credit union. One way they do this is by volunteering to serve on the credit union's Board of Directors. Another way members contribute is by voting in the annual election that determines which members will serve on the seven-person board.

The primary responsibility of the Board of Directors is to ensure quality member service and fiscal safety and soundness by overseeing the credit union's management. Each director has experience in one or more areas of business management and volunteers his or her time and expertise to help determine our future direction.

The Greater Nevada members currently serving three-year terms on its Board of Directors are:
