What’s a Credit Union, Exactly?
A credit union is a nonprofit cooperative owned and operated by its members.
This is what distinguishes a credit union from other financial institutions. Members put their money in a variety of savings accounts, and that money, in turn, is lent to members. After operating expenses and reserve requirements are met, income is returned to all members in the form of dividends and comprehensive financial services.
Each member owns an equal "share" in the organization and has the right to vote in elections for the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee. Every member has one vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. At the Credit Union, there is no select group of shareholders who profits more than anyone else. All members profit — individually and collectively.
