League Leadership

Board of Directors

Your Virginia Credit Union League was organized Nov. 26, 1934 and became incorporated in 1952. Since its organization, it has rendered continuous service and today is recognized as one of the leading leagues in the nation.

Your League is directed by a 13-member board of directors, representing the entire state. The 13 directors are elected by member credit unions. They are responsible for setting League policy and directing the organization's affairs.

Board Elections

Each of the state's four regions elect two directors for their region - one representing credit unions with less than $50 million in assets (Class 1) and one representing credit unions with $50 million or more in assets (Class 2).

In addition, all eligible credit unions have a vote in electing the five at-large directors, who can be elected from any region of the state. However, no more than two at-large directors from the same region can serve at the same time.

Directors are elected to three-year terms, except in certain circumstances, such as when an election is held to fill the unexpired term of a resigning board member.
