Board of Directors

Brazos Star Credit Union has an all-volunteer Board of Directors made up of 7 credit union members elected by a democratic vote by the general membership at the credit union’s Annual Meeting

The annual meeting is held in April of each year. The board members, once elected, serve a term of 3 years. Brazos Star Credit Union’s Board of Directors serves as unpaid volunteers, contributing their time and talent to further the goals of the credit union.

They joined the Credit Union Board in order to support the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.” The directors lend their financial and managerial expertise to help guide the direction of the credit union and fulfill its mission of service to members. The election of board members rotates annually, and each year either two or three board member seats are up for election.

Board members are responsible for setting policies, approving budgets, and helping to direct strategic planning. They evaluate operations and maintain financial performance standards for the credit union. They are also responsible for appointing the credit union’s President/CEO, who reports directly to the Board. Board positions are voluntary and unpaid; the board of directors implement and review the credit union’s policies and provides management oversight.
