Supervisory Committee Member

  • VO65425
  • Board/trustee role


Description

The Supervisory Committee reports directly to the members, rather as an audit committee, and ensures that the credit union operates within the law, its own policies and rules, and in the best interests of members. Supervisory Committee members meet regularly, and each one attends Board meetings in rotation to observe the conduct of business. The overall role is to monitor the operation of the credit union, by internal audit, sampling of member accounts, verifying the credit union accounts and related activities. Supervisory Committee members need to become familiar with the business and policies of the credit union, as well as relevant legislation. The positions require a combination of relevant professional skills and experience, common sense, dedication, integrity and wisdom and a commitment to serving the local community and sympathy with the aims of the credit union.

Organisation aims and objectives

The aim of the Credit Union is to enable members to achieve a better standard of living through their participation in the Credit Union Movement; encourage thrift through regular savings; act as a source of credit for the benefit of its members; educate its members in the wide use of money. The Credit Union philosophy & operational methods promote the welfare of its members and wider community.
