eTrain: Board Governance & Liabilities


Presented by John Vardallas, Founder/CEO, TheAmericanBoomeR Group


As a credit union director, you have tremendous influence over the course your credit union takes, but that influence also carries responsibility for proper governance and performance. You can be held personally liable for failure to govern in the best interests of the credit union, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

What are the legal implications of serving on a credit union board and the risks that come with those responsibilities?

In this session nationally respected credit union expert John Vardallas will outline your governance duties and your position’s liabilities as he focuses on:

  • Understanding proper board/committee roles and models for boards conducting business
  • The importance of establishing good governance practices and reviewing the characteristics of high performing credit union boards
  • Key duties of elected officials and why ongoing education is a priority for future development
  • How credit union boards can position themselves as ethical financial institution governing bodies
  • Key elements of how boards can effectively represent and serve their membership in an effective and productive manner
