Supervisory Committee Volunteers

Ascent Credit Union is looking for volunteers to serve on the Supervisory Committee to ensure ongoing reviews and audits to make sure that credit union records are maintained properly, honestly, and accurately; that policies established by law and by the board of directors are carried out faithfully; and that members’ assets are safeguarded and used according to the purposes of the credit union. The Supervisory Committee is the credit union’s audit committee – a kind of “watchdog” for the members.
