Credit Unions have members, not customers. Credit unions are member-owned, meaning each person who deposits money in a credit union becomes an owner of the credit union. A member is an owner because their deposit is considered a share of ownership. They are run by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by and from the membership. Each member has a vote in electing Board members and certain Committee members, and can run for election to the Board or Committees.
