Quantum Governance, L3C CEO Jennie Boden and the Virginia Credit Union League (VACUL) Interim CEO Karima Freeman have announced a strategic partnership that will provide Virginia credit unions with governance, strategy assessment and consulting services to help them increase the effectiveness of their governance.

VACUL member credit unions will have access to assessment tools and consulting services designed to strengthen their governance. Using a proprietary online survey developed from a decade of work with credit unions across the US and Canada, this unique partnership will allow credit unions of all shapes and sizes to evolve their system of governance to meet the changing needs of the industry and growing sophistication of the marketplace.

These governance services will also specifically address pre- and post-merger challenges, ensuring that merging credit unions are aligned more than just operationally but also in their governance practices.

Further, the partnership will enable credit unions to assess their directors’ skills and examine the matrix of the board to guide and inform their succession planning and onboarding efforts.

Karima Freeman, Interim CEO of Virginia Credit Union League commented, “This partnership with Quantum Governance marks a pivotal advancement for our League, enhancing our governance strategies to better support our credit unions. Through this collaboration, we aim to equip our members with the critical tools and knowledge needed to excel in governance and strategic planning.”

Jennie Boden, Quantum Governance CEO also shared, “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Virginia Credit Union League to help credit unions of all shapes and sizes to grow and strengthen their board and executive leadership so they can continue to fulfill their commitments to the communities they serve across the Commonwealth. We are a mission-driven firm dedicated to helping advance the cooperative mission of the credit union industry, one credit union at a time.”
