Become a Volunteer

Vantage Credit Union was founded on the credit union philosophy of People Helping People. As a not-for-profit organization, volunteers play important roles in our success. Therefore, we’re always looking for dedicated volunteers to help serve in a variety of volunteer capacities. Members have the opportunity to volunteer as a judge on the committee that awards our Quest For Education Scholarships and also can serve as a volunteer board or supervisory committee member.

Board and Supervisory Committee Volunteer Opportunities

Each year, we look for qualified volunteers to fill vacancies for these key positions. The Nominating Committee then presents a slate of nominees for membership vote at the Annual Meetings. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer on our Board or Supervisory Committee, applications are accepted in the fourth quarter of each year.
