2022 Election Official Call for Nominations

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to run a business with over $1 billion in assets and over 60,000 members? Are you looking for a way to use your talent and insight to give something back to your community? That’s what Credit Union of Denver’s volunteers do.

Volunteers are the backbone of Credit Union of Denver. Since 1931, the credit union has provided value and financial stability to its members. This accomplishment can be attributed to the past and present volunteers. 

Volunteers determine the direction of the credit union and approve policies that govern the credit union’s operations and growth. By becoming a volunteer, you can develop your knowledge and skills to help your not-for-profit credit union continue to grow and respond to members’ needs.

As a member of the credit union, you are eligible to run for an elected office if you are at least 21 years of age, insurable, and a member in good standing. In addition, you must be genuinely interested in the future of your credit union, provide leadership, and serve the members and community by demonstrating sound judgment in financial and business matters.
