Volunteer Leadership

NorthPark Community Credit Union (NPCCU) is a credit union chartered and regulated by the State of Indiana and the National Credit Union Administration.  NPCCU is governed by an elected Board of Directors. We are always on the lookout for interesting and qualified individuals to join our volunteer leadership teams! To decide if you want to offer your time and expertise to NPCCU and determine whether you meet the rigorous standards, there are things you'll want to know. This section of our site is designed to help you make an informed, deliberate decision.

 

With so many demands on your time, you have a right to feel your time is well spent.  NPCCU Directors and volunteers agree their time at NPCCU is worthwhile.  NPCCU Directors and volunteers contribute their leadership, knowledge, ideas, and vision to the benefit of their fellow credit union members. In exchange, they receive practical leadership and team experience, education on financial institutions and management, networking opportunities, travel opportunities, and the satisfaction that comes from helping improve people's lives.

 

Directors and volunteers are essential for corporate governance and for NPCCU to fulfill its mission and vision. We need and depend on them. They are a key element of what sets NPCCU apart from other financial institutions.
