Thank you for your interest in serving as a Volunteer of First Financial Credit Union.
Volunteers can spend a considerable amount of personal time fulfilling their responsibilities, preparing for meetings, and attending in-state and out-of-state meetings.
Volunteer members can spend an average of 10 to 15 hours or more per month meeting their responsibilities. It is important that you understand all Volunteer positions are not monetarily compensated for services rendered. Most Volunteer terms are for one to three years. Regular monthly meetings are typical for any volunteer position. Volunteers are expected to be on time, prepared by thoroughly reading meeting materials, and actively engaged during meetings.
Enclosed in the below application is the following:
Application for Volunteers, Authorization and Consent for Release of Information, Code of Ethics and Conduct Statement, Fraud Statement, Code of Conduct as it applies to the Bank Bribery Act, Volunteers Conflict of Interest Policy, Document Retention Policy, Terms of Agreement, and Candidate and Personal Statement Forms.
The bylaws for First Financial Credit Union state: all candidates for a volunteer position should be of legal age, bondable, a member for at least two years and a member in good standing or a joint owner actively using a primary member’s FFCU account for at least two years. For a joint owner to be considered for nomination, you must become a primary member prior to submitting your candidate application.
Please note: If nominated and elected/appointed to any volunteer position, any loan request from a Volunteer will require Board of Director approval. This can normally take place within one-two business days of the Board approval request.
Applications are accepted year-round, however, the annual election process for a volunteer position takes place during the first six months of each year.
Prior to completing the volunteer application, please review all eligibility requirements, position descriptions and refer to the Application Checklist.
The entire application must be completed in one sitting. You are not able to start, exit and come back into the application process without starting from the beginning again. Complete all information, and sign the enclosed Application for Volunteers, Terms of Agreement, and Authorization Form as well as e-signatures on the required pages.
Upon receiving your submission, First Financial Credit Union will conduct a background check as outlined in the Background Authorization Disclosure and FCRA Summary of Rights. The Nominating Committee or Executive Administrative Assistant will contact you to schedule an interview if you are selected as one of the finalists. Candidates not selected will be notified as well.
