GECU Board of Directors: 2019

The GECU Board of Directors is a local, all-volunteer group of leaders elected by credit union member-owners. GECU's board believes in the credit union movement and philosophy of people helping people. GECU pays $25 to each director, advisory director, and committee member for attending the Annual Membership Meeting, the monthly board meetings, and periodic meetings of duly-formed committees.

GECU's board of directors works diligently to ensure that GECU remains a financially secure and safe financial institution that serves the best interest of its member-owners and the community. We thank them for their commitment and inspired leadership.
