In the last few years, credit unions of all sizes have faced uncertain economic conditions, an increased emphasis on consumer protection, and mounting regulatory requirements – all of which have placed additional pressures on their management and boards. What can a proactive board do to help protect the credit union and guide it forward? This webinar will review ten best practices in corporate governance, the primary responsibilities of effective board members, and several red flags you should understand. With increased focus on boardroom effectiveness and management behavior, it’s important to step back, review your governance processes, and be forthright in making necessary changes. A credit union built on a sound foundation of strong corporate governance will have a significant advantage in any economic climate.
