Volunteering with Carrickmacross Credit Union

Become a Volunteer

The Credit Union spirit of co-operation and community development is perhaps best demonstrated through the incredible contributions of thousands of volunteers at director, committee, and local Credit Union level, who selflessly give their time and energy to the Credit Union movement. Credit Unions are a not for profit – ethical – member owned financial organisation.

Carrickmacross Credit Union exists for the benefits of its members.  It is staffed by members for members.  We rely a great deal on the services of our valued volunteers who commit tirelessly to the success and sustainability of our Credit Union.  These volunteers sit on the various Committees and our Board of Directors, so they are fundamental to our past, present and future.  Every credit union needs a team of volunteers dedicated to ensuring a strong and viable future for all of our members.

Finance, information technology, management and communications skills are particularly welcome. However, any ability to contribute is appreciated. There are policies and training in place to support volunteers in their roles. In addition to the induction training program for all new volunteers, ongoing training is available and people are encouraged to develop various skills.

The Board of Directors of every Credit Union is drawn from members who have the skills and knowledge to lead and manage the Credit Union. They give freely of their time to develop and enhance the services of their Credit Union. No renumeration can be paid for these roles.

Committee members have the right to attend all meetings of the Board and all meetings of other committees of the Credit Union.

The committee members should meet at least once a month to discuss the Boards performance.

The committee reports to the members at the AGM as to whether, in their view, the Board has complied with its obligations.

No renumeration can be paid for these roles.
