Apply to Serve on the Board of Directors

OnPoint is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members.  Directors serving on the Board are members themselves.  Directors represent the interests of the entire membership and determine the strategic direction of the Credit Union.  Interested members can apply to serve on the Board of Directors and positively impact OnPoint’s future.
