Governance

The Board of Directors of Alterna Savings is the decision-making team behind your credit union. Simply stated, the Board determines where we’re going, that we know how to get there, and that we follow the rules along the way.

As a member you can help shape the Board by exercising your right to vote at our Annual General Meeting. You can also become a candidate for the Board yourself. We encourage all our members to actively participate in the democracy of our financial co-operative, whether through voting or becoming a Director. Having a Board that is elected by members is one of our key differences. It means that banking at Alterna is a genuine promise – not just a clever phrase.

Our Board of Directors are dedicated volunteers. They oversee and are ultimately responsible for our strategic and financial planning/performance, compliance with legislation and regulations, and the satisfaction of members, staff, and other stakeholders.
