We run our business responsibly and ethically.
Building Trades Credit Union's Board of Directors and senior management are committed to acting responsibly, ethically and with the highest standards of integrity to ensure that BTCU's activities are continually structured and delivered in a manner that allows us to meet the needs of our members.
Board of Directors
Credit Unions are different from other financial institutions because they are not-for-profit cooperatives whose primary goal is to serve their members. Our Board of Directors is also unlike our counterparts who serve on the boards of big banks. Credit Union board members, including those at BTCU, serve as unpaid volunteers.
The seven member Board of Directors that serves BTCU is charged with setting the Credit Union's policies and maintaining the best interests of its members. They each serve three year, elected terms. Their commitment to the Credit Union and men and women of the building trades drives their service to the membership.
