About the Supervisory Committee

The Supervisory Committee consists of member volunteers appointed by the Board of Directors. The Committee's mission is to serve the membership by ensuring our practices and procedures are sufficient to safeguard members' assets. The Committee also makes sure financial reports accurately reflect our operations and results, our policies and controls guard against threats like fraud, errors, conflicts of interest, and self-dealing. The Committee accomplishes this through:

  • Engaging an independent accounting firm to perform an annual audit of the financial statements and verify the accuracy of members' account statements. This firm provides an opinion on the soundness and accuracy of the credit union's financial statements and to review compliance with federal regulations and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
  • The Internal Audit Department, which reports directly to the committee, that is responsible for the continuous auditing of activities at all branches and operations.
