MidUSA is a not-for-profit cooperative that is led by volunteers. The true energy of the Credit Union comes from member involvement!
The Board of Directors is a member-elected position that provides governance and policy guidance to the Credit Union’s staff leadership team. We also have other volunteer opportunities to help MidUSA meet our members’ needs through committee work and focus group opportunities. We rely on volunteers to fill all the positions on our:
- Board of Directors
- Finance Committee
- Audit Committee
- Governance Committee
Meet some of our Board Members
MidUSA Board Members are a great example of taking your membership to the next level and volunteering your time, talents and energy to help MidUSA be the best credit union possible.
Here are their brief backgrounds and stories…
Christina is one of our newest MidUSA members on the Board, having joined the Credit Union in 2018. Christina’s community service is core to her heart and includes volunteering as a Monroe City Council member, as well as in the Lions Club, Rotary, Monroe Historical Society, and many other organizations.
“One of my most valuable assets is my time and volunteering my time is a critical piece to a larger picture. We can all find a way to participate in our Credit Union…through one of the many committees, serving on the Board, helping bring in new members, as well as bringing your unique skills to the volunteer position. We (the members) are the Credit Union and we make the difference…you will enjoy the experience—I know I have! Won’t you join me?”
A member since 2007, Kyle lives in Middletown and fills various volunteer roles on the Middletown Planning Commission, Middletown Little League and Butler County Bombers select baseball team.
“My number one advice to other MidUSA members is to learn about how you can help your Credit Union grow and prosper. Increasing our member base and member volunteers will help MidUSA be the best we can be. Volunteering at MidUSA is fun, exciting and doesn’t take a lot of time. We are looking for volunteers right now. Pick up the phone and let us know of your interest.”
A Centerville resident, Emmanuel has been a MidUSA member for the past 5 years and believes service to the community is very important. Emmanuel is a very active volunteer at the Credit Union, works at a rural health clinic and volunteers at his children’s school.
“Community service is very important. I believe you should always leave a place better than you found it…so each of us need to do our part. We need each other’s skills, work and effort. Would you consider joining me as a MidUSA volunteer? You’ll be glad you did.”
