Corporate Governance

The Board is responsible for the corporate governance of the credit union. As the Board acts on behalf of the members and is accountable to the members, it uses the key principles of accountability, disclosure and independence to carry out this responsibility.

In addition, the Board is responsible for identifying areas of significant business risk and ensuring arrangements are in place to adequately manage those risks.

To assist in this process the Board has established a number of key committees, each with its own terms of reference.

They are:

  • Board Audit Committee
  • Board Risk Advisory Committee
  • Governance Committee
  • Nomination Committee

The full Board currently holds eleven scheduled meetings each year plus planning meetings.

Summerland Credit Union's Constitution provides the framework for how the Board operates.
