Get Involved as a Volunteer
The Credit Union spirit of co-operation and community development is perhaps best demonstrated through the incredible contribution of volunteers at director, committee and local Credit Union level, who generously give their time and energy to the Credit Union movement.
In 2001, President McAleese paid tribute to the enthusiasm of the movement when speaking at the World Council of Credit Unions’ International Conference in Killarney, Co. Kerry saying, “The Credit Union movement is not and never has been about rocket science but about the simplest and the most profound human psychology – wrapped up in an old Irish saying – Ní neart go cur le chéile – unity is strength.”
Life Credit Union exists for the benefits of our members. We are staffed by members for members. We rely greatly on the services of our valued volunteers who commit tirelessly to the success and sustainability of our Credit Union. These volunteers sit on our various Committees and our Board of Directors, so they are essential in ensuring a strong and viable future for all of our members.
Some of the benefits of volunteering with Life CU include:
- Gaining skills and experience with a financial services environment
- Education and training
- Personal development
- Meet new people from the community
- Work on development and business projects
- Give something back to the community
Finance, information technology, management and communications skills are particularly welcome. However, any ability to make a contribution is appreciated. There are policies and training in place to support volunteers in their roles, and volunteers are encouraged to develop their skills.
Talk to us and find out what your potential contribution could be. We need people like you.
