Board of Directors at the groundbreaking of a new branch

Board of Directors

Greater Nevada Credit Union’s Board of Directors set the strategic course for our credit union and oversees its general activities. Directors serve as volunteers. They receive no compensation, though we invest in their training and involvement in the credit union industry.

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.
