Also, there are a variety of volunteer committees that contribute to the success and leadership of Cy-Fair FCU (including our Supervisory Committee, Community Advisory Committee, and periodic community focus groups).
If you are interested in using your skills to support your credit union as a volunteer, simply request an application packet by emailing the Board Nominating Committee then complete the application and email it with your resume back to the Board Nominating Committee. Prospective nominees must be a member of Cy-Fair Federal Credit Union, at least 18 years old, and return the completed volunteer application to the Nominating Committee. The nominating committee will collect applications for next year's (2020) board nominations until early December 2019.
