Volunteer Board of Directors
Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union is owned and operated by its members. The administration includes an 11-member volunteer Board of Directors, who set general policies; a Supervisory Committee whose members provide an internal check on financial and operational matters; an Asset-Liability Committee whose members monitor the financial health of the organization; and an Appeals Committee, whose members ensure the adherence to loan policies.
The Credit Union is under the general direction and control of a Board of Directors. The board’s overriding concern is its fiduciary responsibility in safeguarding the funds and other assets that the Credit Union’s members have entrusted to it. JHFCU shall constitute its board membership in accordance with the standards outlined in its own bylaws, the Federal Credit Union Act, National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) regulations, its mission statement, and its policy for board nomination. The board recognizes its responsibility to create an environment that attracts and retains qualified directors. An individual must certify an interest in and a willingness to serve and must be able to commit the time requested for service.
Note: Board members are chosen in an annual election; the Supervisory Committee and Appeals Committee members are elected by the Board of Directors. All are volunteers, taking time from their jobs to serve the Credit Union and its members.

Open positions on the Credit Union’s Board of Directors are filled by election from the membership at the Annual Meeting, held in the spring of each year.
