Board of Directors
As a Member-owned financial cooperative, People First is governed by a Board of Directors. Our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee all help to shape the decisions and progress of our organization, and ensure that the long-term interests of our members are served.
Volunteering with the Board of Directors is a great opportunity to be a part of a successful organization and to contribute toward People First FCU’s continued growth and success.

These financial services will be provided by the credit union staff under the direction of the volunteer officials.
